What is Invisalign teen?
Invisalign Teen in Glasgow is a treatment that has been specifically developed for teenage patients. The treatment works in exactly the same way as Invisalign braces but has additional features, which make it suitable for younger patients. The Invisalign system works by using clear, plastic aligners to move the teeth that are custom-made to fit the patient. The series of aligners are manufactured in accordance with the specific orthodontic problems, in order to ensure the teeth move in the right direction. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next aligner in the series. The Invisalign Teen aligners have markers on them to remind patients when to change their aligner and replace it with the next in the series. The teen treatment also comes with spare aligners so that treatment can continue if an aligner is lost or damaged.
How does the treatment work?
The treatment works by generating gentle force, which moves the teeth in the desired direction. The treatment involves wearing a series of clear, plastic aligners. The aligners are designed to fit the individual patient and they are shaped to move the teeth into the correct position over the course of time. The aligners are worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next in the series; each aligner should be worn for a minimum of 21 hours each day.
