Meeting the Dental Needs of Teenagers

Invisalign® Teen works the same way as the original Invisalign but includes a few custom-designed additions to meet the dental needs of teenagers.

With a Blue Dot Wear Indicator to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign® Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles!

Total treatment time for teens averages 6-15 months, using an average number of 18-30 aligners. Orthodontic appointments are scheduled every 8-10 weeks.

Invisalign® Teen can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were treated with traditional braces. These conditions include:

  • Overly crowded teeth

  • Widely spaced teeth

  • Crossbite

  • Overbite

  • Underbite

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign® is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign® can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, contact us to make an appointment.
