Invisalign Teen: Aligning Growing Teeth for Young Patients

Traditional metal braces can be uncomfortable and aesthetically unappealing, especially for young patients. However, with Invisalign® Teen, straight smiles are made possible, without compromising patients’ self-confidence. At the Hamden orthodontic practice of Dr. Mark J. Schpero, we provide Invisalign clear aligners for teens to help them achieve straighter teeth and healthier bites.

For discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatment, contact Dr. Schpero today to schedule a consultation. 

Straightening Growing Smiles Discretely

Invislaign for Teen in Hamden

While clear aligners can be a significant responsibility teens and younger patients to use, Invisalign Teen is specifically created to work with their habits and needs. Compliance is essential when wearing clear aligners, which is why traditional metal braces are recommended teeth treatment for young patents. Invisalign Teen clear aligners include compliance indicators, in a form of a blue dot, to ensure our Hamden orthodontist and parents know that kids are wearing their aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day, keeping them on track with their treatment plan.

These aligners are designed with tabs for budding teeth. Any spaces needed for tooth eruption are kept open and considered in ongoing treatment to allow adult teeth to move into position.  

Optimizing Hygiene and Maintaining Diet

Dr. Mark J. Schpero recommends Invisalign Teen aligners for young patients, as these orthodontic appliances do not limit diet choices or require any complex additions to their at-home care routine. Clear aligners are removed during meals, allowing young patients to maintain their regular diets as well. Foods that were restricted during traditional metal braces treatment such as hard and crunchy foods can be eaten. There will also be no embarrassing food particles trapped in brackets.

Patients should brush their teeth after meals and before they place their clear braces, as debris left behind can become trapped and create risk for decay. With these minor considerations, oral hygiene remains simple and only requires the rinsing trays to keep them fresh. 

Freedom and Comfort

Invisalign Teen clear aligner causes little to no discomfort and allows young patients the freedom to pursue daily activities, such as sports, without fear of irritating soft tissue. Compared to metal braces, patients can smile with confidence while their clear aligners gradually straighten their teeth. Our Hamden Invisalign Teen clear braces allow your child to achieve a straighter smile discreetly.

I want to thank you for recommending Invisalign braces when I first visited your office 14 months ago. My dentist highly recommended you since one of your specialties is adult orthodontics. It has been such a positive, easy experience using the clear aligners and I am thrilled with my new beautiful, straight teeth. You cannot imagine the additional self-confidence it has given me.

As you know, work in sales and marketing and I am in my late 50's. For years I have wanted to straighten my teeth because I was always self conscience of my teeth. I wish I had visited your office years ago because the process of the removable, Invisalign aligners allowed me to continue to transact business and enjoy social activities with people no realizing I was wearing braces.

All of your office staff was so professioal and accommodating with appointments, and I want to thank you personally for the dental guidance and encouragement you have given me. You have literally changed my life and I wish I had decided to do this procedure years ago.

Dr. Schpero is absolutely amazing. The experience from start to finish has been seamless, and dare I say-painless?! Dr. Schpero is the consummate professional, making sure that I understood each step and answering any questions or concerns that I had. I could see an improvement in my teeth almost immediately, and, now that my braces are off, I cannot tell you how happy I am with how my teeth look. I would recommend Dr. Schpero to anyone, and thoughly enjoyed my entire experience with him and all of his staff. Thank you so much, I will actually miss seeing you and your staff on a monthly basis!
