Invisalign Teen – the treatment that lets you live your life your way!

Does your teen need orthodontic treatment, but doesn’t love the idea of having to spend months with metal attached to their teeth? Invisalign Teen can help your child get their best smile as discreetly as possible.

What is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen is Invisalign treatment designed just for teens. It consists of a series of clear aligners that your teen will wear for 22 hours a day. The aligners will fit snugly over their teeth to apply the needed pressure to guide the teeth to their new locations. Each set is worn for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next set.


What are the advantages for my teen?

Invisalign Teen is an excellent option for teens who lead busy lives and who want to ensure their treatment doesn’t get in the way of that.

Invisalign Teen offers:

  • Comfort – No brackets and wires to irritate the mouth and the aligners are made from a smooth plastic
  • Removability – That means no dietary restrictions – your teen can enjoy their favorite foods because they’ll remove their aligners to eat and drink.
  • Better oral care – Because the aligners are removed when brushing and flossing, your child can care for their teeth like always. And, there are no brackets and wires for food to get caught in.
  • Affordability – Invisalign Teen costs the same as braces so you don’t have to worry about treatment being more expensive.

What do I need to know as a parent before allowing my child to get Invisalign teen?

It utilizes the same revolutionary technology, but with some built-in indicators to monitor your teen’s compliance. We know that our teen patients lead busy lives and sometimes wish their orthodontic treatment didn’t interfere with their social lives. They may be tempted to remove their aligners for a big occasion, which sometimes can become a bit of a habit.


But don’t worry – Invisalign Teen is designed just for your teen to ensure compliance. That’s because each aligner set comes with built-in compliance indicators. They are tiny blue dots that keep track of how often your child is wearing their aligners. If your child has worn the aligners as they should, the dots should be barely noticeable. If you can still clearly see the dots, you’ll know your teen is skipping out on their wear and can correct course.
