Spending half of your high school experience with a metal smile can be a drag. There will be homecoming dances, sporting events, and even prom! You don’t have to take worry about taking pictures with a half-hearted closed smile. With Invisalign® Teen, you can smile big and proud and enjoy photo-worthy events for years to come.
Invisalign® Teen comes with a blue-dot indicator on the aligner. When worn for 20-22 hours a day (as recommended) the blue dot will fade to clear to let you know it is time for the next set of aligners. At Stork Orthodontics of West Des Moines, Iowa (IA), we know you have a busy schedule between school, chores, and extra-curricular activities. Invisalign® Teen gives you one less thing to worry about during your high school days.
With Invisalign® Teen, the trays are removable. So, if you play an instrument or sport, you simply remove the trays and play the way you always have. With traditional metal braces, you are subjected to an adjustment period or are required to buy expensive brace-ready mouth guards. Invisalign® Teen gives you the flexibility to be a teenager, without restraints.
With traditional metal braces, there are certain dietary restrictions for the duration of your treatment. Certain foods like whole apples, carrots, caramels, and cereal have to be either completely eliminated or modified to be appliance-friendly. Invisalign® Teen utilizes removable trays, so you are able to enjoy the foods you love without damaging your appliance and extending your treatment.
