The Invisalign® Teen aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day.
You 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 your favorite foods whenever you want. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces.
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, 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, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet. As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Perfect for busy schedules
Invisalign® Teen is ideal for busy parents and kids as there are never emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets. Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than braces, and each visit requires less “chair time.” Typically, Invisalign® Teen patients are seen once every eight weeks for an average treatment time of nine to 15 months.
Doesn't cost more than traditional braces
Every patient’s needs are different, and many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment for teens. In most cases, Invisalign is the same price as traditional braces and is covered by most dental insurance plans. Financing options are also available to make Invisalign for teens more affordable for your family.
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for eating, brushing, flossing and special occasions.
Great for active teens
Invisalign for teens effectively straightens teeth the same way braces do. 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.
Get started today
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 for you. Like with traditional braces, you will generally need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
