Thanks to the international availability of a certain teeth-alignment technology, more teenagers may be willing to receive dental care since the innovative device is less noticeable than braces.
Align Technology announced Invisalign Teen, which assists patients in realigning their teeth, is now available around the world.
For some patients, Invisalign has replaced the traditional treatment of braces, which can be associated with certain social stigmas some teenagers may find undesirable. Invisalign Teen was launched in the U.S. and Canada in July 2008.
"The addition of Invisalign Teen to our product portfolio will allow doctors to extend the benefits of Invisalign treatment to more of their patients and offer a more comprehensive solution that meets the needs, activities and lifestyle of today's teenagers," said Gil Laks, vice president of Align.
With the product, patients will receive clear, removable aligners that will provide aesthetic treatment for one's teeth as well as fit a teenager's busy daily schedule that may include sports, music and schoolwork.
Some dentist said Invisalign, aside from being less noticeable, allows patients to brush and floss more efficiently, which can assist them in maintaining good dental health.
