With Invisalign Teen®, you can straighten your teeth without metal wires and brackets getting in the
way. You're free to enjoy the things that make these years the best times of your life!
No one needs to know
Invisalign Teen aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible. This means your friends probably wouldn't even know you're wearing them!
Instead of hiding behind a mouth of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day. And that can make for a better social life overall.
Eat with freedom
You probably have friends with braces who aren't allowed to chew gum or eat foods like popcorn and whole apples.
With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat all your favorite foods whenever you want! This also means you can easily brush and floss as you normally do to maintain oral hygiene. Try that with braces.
Keep doing what you love
When you play sports, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you want to.
It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball. Invisalign Teen helps you focus on doing what you do best - being a teen.
Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than wires and brackets, the Invisalign System uses a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth. Your teen simply wears them over their teeth and changes them out for a new set of aligners approximately every 1-2 weeks. Little by little, your teen’s teeth gradually shift into place.
If you’ve had braces yourself, you already know the issues associated with metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign treatment, the aligners are removable, so your teen can play sports without the worry of being hit in the mouth by a ball, which can cause real damage in braces. They can also continue playing musical instruments properly. With braces, there is a long list of foods your teen shouldn’t eat, from popcorn to whole apples and raw carrots. With Invisalign treatment, there are no such restrictions. The removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss normally to maintain proper oral hygiene.
With Invisalign Teen treatment, no one needs to know your teen is straightening their teeth, giving them the confidence to be themselves in front of everyone.
The average treatment time is about the same as with traditional braces, but the actual length of your teen’s treatment depends on the severity of their condition and can only be determined by your doctor.
Invisalign Teen aligners is most effective when worn 20 to 22 hours per day and changed approximately every 1-2 weeks. Clinical study data show that teens wear their aligners on average for just under 21 hours per day, exactly as recommended. Plus, Invisalign Teen treatment has a built-in compliance check; each set of aligners has blue indicators that fade over time when used as directed, so the doctor can track compliance.
Invisalign Teen treatment often requires less time with your doctor than traditional braces. There are no adjustments to make, no broken wires to fix. After the initial appointment, follow-up appointments are usually scheduled every 6-8 weeks.
Yes. When worn according to the recommendations of an experienced Invisalign-trained doctor, Invisalign Teen treatment can be as effective as traditional braces for the most common teeth-straightening issues.
