What is Invisalign® Teen?

Teenagers have a lot on their plates. Between homework, extracurriculars, sports, and a busy social life, the last thing teens need is yet another thing to stress over—or another thing to argue with their parents about.

Invisalign® Teen is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces, that gives both teens and their parents something to smile about. Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign® Teen uses transparent plastic aligners to gently shift teeth into a more ideal position, resulting in a straighter smile.

 

Why Teens Love Invisalign®

Invisalign® Teen gives you the smile you want, with the hassle, discomfort, or embarrassment of traditional braces. These clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible, meaning they won’t show up in photos and are barely noticeable in person.

Have an important event coming up, like picture day or prom? Simply take out the aligners, and attend your special event with confidence. Invisalign® aligners can also be removed for sports or musical performances, so you’ll never need to worry about irritating your mouth.

With Invisalign®, you’ll be able to enjoy all your favorite foods without stressing about breaking a bracket or loosening a wire. Most importantly, these smooth plastic aligners are gentle on your mouth, and won’t poke and cut your mouth like metal wires and brackets.

 

Why Parents Love Invisalign®

As a parent, you want the very best for your teenager. Invisalign® Teen straightens your teen’s teeth just as effectively as traditional braces, without the discomfort, annoyance, or awkwardness of having metal in their mouth.

Invisalign® Teen aligners are equipped with blue dots that fade when the aligners are worn. If your teen hasn’t been wearing their aligners, the blue dots won’t fade. This handy feature allows parents to ensure their teens are wearing Invisalign® for the prescribed 20-22 hours per day, meaning you’re getting the most out of your investment. The best part? Because the clear plastic aligners are so comfortable and discreet, convincing your teen to wear their aligners will be a breeze!

The cost of Invisalign® is typically the same as traditional braces, and may be covered by your dental insurance plan. Additionally, Invisalign® Teen provides six replacement aligners in case they go missing.
