Posted on 10/14/2021

Going back to school is a very exciting time full of change and new opportunities. Especially now that school is back in person, seeing old friends and making new ones means more than ever, and we want to be the best version of ourselves we can be! Choonara Orthodontics is ready to help patients in Johannesburg achieve the smile they’ve always dreamed of with Invisalign Teen, a radical form of orthodontic treatment that works invisibly, so you can look your best every day at school.

What is Invisalign Teen

  • IInvisalign Teen works like braces, but instead of a bulky metal or ceramic appliance, the results are achieved with a series of clear aligners.
  • The aligners are created using digital scans of your teeth for a perfect fit, and with gentle pressure, they gradually shift teeth into a more optimal position.
  • Invisalign can be used to correct mild overbites, underbites, and open bites, as well as various irregular and misaligned teeth. Invisalign treatment is completed in a period of between 12 and 18 months.
  • Unlike standard Invisalign, Invisalign Teen includes the option of special “compliance dots” to make sure you stay on track with your treatment and wear your aligners to the recommended amount.

Perfect for a Back to School Schedule

Any teen knows that school is demanding, with social as well as academic pressures affecting day-to-day life. Keeping routines is one of the best ways to deal with this stress, and become your most productive self. Wearing your Invisalign Teen aligners every day for the recommended 22 hours, cleaning and caring for them, is a great way to practice positive goal setting and build good habits.

Adapt Invisalign Teen to Your Lifestyle

Whether you’re a sports star, beauty queen, or an aspiring foodie, one of the best features of Invisalign Teen is that it is removed whenever you eat or drink anything besides water, and anytime you play contact sports. There is no need to change your diet when undergoing Invisalign treatment, no foods to avoid, no extra difficulty cleaning your teeth, and it adapts to your lifestyle. Just make sure you wear the aligners consistently.
