Invisalign® Teen is a clear, low-key way to straighten teeth. Instead of using the traditional metal braces with wires and brackets, Invisalign® Teen uses clear, smooth, BPA-free aligners to gently straighten teeth. Invisalign® clear aligners slide on easily and remain discreet as they straighten teeth.
Does It Work as Well as Traditional Braces?
Yes. Invisalign® Teen can be as effective as traditional braces when used correctly. It’s important that they are worn 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results.
Just like traditional braces, Invisalign® Teen can be used to correct:
- Crowded teeth.
- Gapped teeth.
Your teen will love straightening teeth with the Invisalign® treatment plan!
What are Some Benefits?
Invisalign® treatment offers many advantages over traditional metal braces. When you choose this treatment for your teen, you will notice that Invisalign® Teen is:
- Subtle. The clear material is nearly invisible and can be difficult to see when it’s being worn.
- Removable. The aligners slide on and off teeth, which makes eating and brushing easier. This is also a plus for any teens who participate in sports and/or play instruments.
- Freeing. Clear aligners make it easy to eat. You don’t have to worry about foods that might get stuck or damage brackets. Just slip off the aligners, eat any food you like, and when you’re ready, slide the aligner back on.
- Easily Replaceable. You can get up to six replacement aligners free during the treatment, if they are lost or broken.

What Else Should I Consider?
Being a teenager is tough. Between school, social expectations, and a growing body, it can be hard to feel comfortable in your own skin. This is especially true if your teen has crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. Getting traditional braces can draw attention to the issue, which might make them decide not to get treatment.
Invisalign® Teen is designed to be difficult to see and won’t draw attention to your teenager’s teeth. In fact, some peers may not even notice that your teen is wearing these aligners!
How Long Does Treatment Last
On average, treatment can take nine to sixteen months. Dental visits should occur every four to six weeks. Treatment time varies from case to case and depends on how well your teen sticks to the treatment plan.
A unique feature of Invisalign® Teen is that there are blue indicators that can tell you whether or not your teen is wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours a day. This takes the guesswork out of your teen’s treatment plan!
