About Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is based on the revolutionary Invisalign System, offering the same fundamental approach to moving teeth. Unlike the metal wires and brackets of braces, Invisalign Teen uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth gradually. The aligners are transparent and fit directly onto the dental arch, making them almost impossible to see when worn. And, because they're completely removable, you can pop them in and out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

With Invisalign Teen treatment, your orthodontist will take an impression (model) of your mouth, then use that to create a detailed treatment plan. Based on that plan, we'll have your own set of aligners custom-manufactured to perfectly fit your mouth. You'll wear each pair of aligners for about 2 weeks before moving on to the next pair, and with each new set, your teeth will move closer to their optimal positions!

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign's unique design gives it a number of advantages over traditional braces. Some of the benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Virtually Invisible: The aligners are almost impossible to see when worn. No need to worry about braces in school pictures, prom, or other important milestones.
  • Completely Removable: Pop them in and out to eat, drink, and perform oral hygiene.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: Because you remove the aligners to eat, you don't have to monitor your diet for certain foods.
  • Improved Comfort: Invisalign aligners are smooth to the touch, so they won't cause the same cuts and scratches as braces.

Designed Just for Teenagers

But beyond the advantages afforded by Invisalign, Invisalign Teen carries some distinct benefits specifically for teenagers. Every Invisalign Teen aligner comes with a special Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which tells parents, doctors, and teens themselves if the aligners are being worn enough or need to be worn longer. Aligners can also be made with eruption tabs, which hold space open for erupting teeth. Furthermore, every Invisalign Teen treatment course comes with 6 free replacement aligners, completely free of charge – so you don't have to worry if any get lost or broken!
