Can children have Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign is typically recommended for adult patients since compliance is essential for treatment to be successful. However, Dr. Gostigian will also consider invisible braces in Bonita Springs for teens who may be interested in straightening their teeth without using braces as long as they agree to wear their aligners at least 22 hours each day and change them every two weeks.
For a self-conscious teen, Invisalign can be a great way to boost their confidence while aligning their teeth without the embarrassment or discomfort of wearing bulky metal braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are comfortable to wear and virtually invisible, so they are easy to integrate into your teen's daily routine. They also can be removed for brushing and flossing so your teen can easily manage their home care routine.
Aligners should be taken out for meals, so your teen must be conscientious about keeping track of their aligners at school or during other activities away from home. Since aligners are clear, it's easy for them to get lost or thrown away in the trash after lunch.
