Invisalign for teens

Many teens consider just living with crooked teeth in fear of having to wear metal braces. Today, there is an orthodontic solution that won't show up in school pictures and won't affect the activities of a varsity athlete or a talented musician. It's called Invisalign Teen.

Invisalign Teen uses a series of invisible and comfortable aligners to straighten a teen patient's teeth. Not only are the aligners invisible, but also they're removable, meaning the patient can eat and drink what they want while in orthodontic treatment, and making brushing and flossing less of a hassle.

Invisalign Teen FAQs

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Your friends won't notice that you’re wearing them, making Invisalign a seamless fit with any teen's lifestyle. Also, unlike with traditional braces, you have the flexibility to remove your aligners to eat and drink what you want during treatment, and you can remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would, for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

With Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, there are also no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus, since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair. Invisalign also allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straightened teeth will look when your Invisalign treatment is complete. Instead of imagining how much better your smile can be, you’ll be able to see it for yourself.
This varies from teen to teen and depends on the outcome of your Invisalign treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones Invisalign makes, such as Align Technology’s Vivera Retainer, which is worn at night. Your orthodontist will discuss these options with you because every patient is different.
Yes! Invisalign Teen can treat most of the same irregularities in your teeth's positioning as traditional metal braces would. However, because each teen's smile is different, your orthodontist will analyze your individual orthodontic needs to determine if Invisalign Teen is the right course of action for you.
We know cost is a big question for anyone considering orthodontic work. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. However, as with other medical treatments, only your doctor can determine the exact cost, based on your specific orthodontic needs. Other factors may include your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment, where you live, your orthodontic insurance coverage and additional factors determined by your orthodontist. In the U.S., the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, with the national average at about $5,000.
Teens are always on-the-go, and they're often still learning about responsibility. Invisalign Teen understands that and has taken it into consideration in the development of their products. For instance, with Invisalign Teen, if a patient loses an aligner, he or she gets up to 6 free replacement aligners! Invisalign Teen aligners also have blue indicator dots that fade with use, so parents and orthodontists can double check to make sure teen patients are wearing their aligners as much as they should be.
