Kattner Orthodontics is proud to be your choice when you’re looking for an orthodontist in Waukegan, IL. As your provider of orthodontic treatment we realize that every patient will have different needs and interests. To make sure all of our patients are satisfied we offer many different types of braces and also the alternative to braces, Invisalign. While Invisalign is generally designed for adults, we’re excited to offer Invisalign Teen, a treatment that’s designed specifically for teenage patients. If your teenager is thinking about undergoing orthodontic treatment, allow us to give you a few reasons as to why you might consider Invisalign Teen.

The Advantages of Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen Offers a Discreet Treatment Process

The most noticeable (or unnoticeable) thing about Invisalign Teen is that the aligners are practically invisible. Other people probably won’t even notice that a patient with Invisalign Teen is actually undergoing orthodontic treatment. These transparent aligners are custom-fit to slide over a patient’s teeth and provide a discreet method of straightening teeth. For the teenager that is self-conscious or worried about their appearance with traditional braces Invisalign Teen is the perfect alternative.

Invisalign Teen Is Removable

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign Teen can be removed. Invisalign Teen only needs to be worn for about 22 hours a day so you can take out your aligners for eating, brushing, or any important social occasions. Since you’ll be eating without your aligners in, you won’t have to change your eating habits like you would with traditional braces. Brushing and flossing also becomes a normal process since there’s no worry about cleaning around brackets and wires.

Invisalign Teen is Comfortable and Convenient

While traditional braces are made of metal that may irritate your cheeks and gums, Invisalign Teen is made of a soft, flexible material that’s much more comfortable for your mouth. Also, with Invisalign Teen, you won’t have to worry about broken or loose brackets and wires. Invisalign Teen is durable, meaning that you won’t have to come in as often to fix problems with your orthodontic appliance.
