Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign’s clear aligner technology is now available for teens! With Invisalign for Teens, your teen can achieve a more radiant smile with their patented system of disposable aligners. At Conlon Thompson Orthodontics, we’re giving everyone a little something to smile about in the McHenry area.
Now teens have an option to metal braces in their yearbook photos or Facebook profiles – introducing Invisalign Teen! Invisalign Teen is the clear way to straighten teeth without metal braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires or metal brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
Invisalign went to leading orthodontists, parents, and teens themselves to custom-design an Invisalign system just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With blue-to-clear color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles!
