Made Just for Your Teen
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can be a great option if your teen is worried about how their appearance and don’t want to look different from their friends.
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your teen’s friends probably won’t even know they’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal, they’ll enjoy the confidence of showing your smile every day.
They probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat all of their favorite foods whenever you want.
This also means they can easily keep brushing and flossing normally for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces.
Whether they play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold them back from enjoying the things you want to. Invisalign for Teens helps them focus on doing what
they do best – being a teen.
Designed to Fit a Teen’s Life
Perfect for Busy Schedules: Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents because there are never any emergency appointments for broken wires or brackets. Invisalign often requires fewer appointments (than traditional metal braces) because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance and each visit requires less "chair time."
On average, Invisalign for Teens patients is seen once every 8 weeks for an average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens: Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
Orthodontic treatment shouldn’t get in the way of the activities you’re interested in or the memories you want to make. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces: Everyone has different needs, and many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. In most cases, Invisalign is about the same price as traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans.
Financing options are also available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family.

It’s important to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teen's teeth. But, with Invisalign, they can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, they’ll need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain their new smile.
Invisalign may not be recommended for some complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework; the doctor can advise you about what options are best.
