Almost-Invisible Braces Just for Teens
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can be a great option for teens who don’t want to look different from their friends.
Invisalign created a system that meets the needs of our teenage patients. Invisalign Teen can be a great clear option for teens shying away from traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Teen Is Like Invisalign
The basics of Invisalign Teen are identical to regular Invisalign, except that you'll have space left in your clear plastic aligners to make room for your adult molars that haven’t yet come in.
You can even take them out any time you pose for a photo. Compliance monitors (blue markings that fade with time) track wearing time, assuring that each set of aligners is worn long enough to move the teeth before switching to the next set. Finally, parents will be reassured to know that the Invisalign Teen package includes a provision for replacement aligners in case of loss.
With Invisalign Teen, you don't need to feel self-conscious because you can’t join in with whatever your friends are doing. When everyone else is reaching for crunchy snacks, you don’t have to say no – you simply pop out your aligners.
You don’t need to worry that taking part in your favorite sport might damage your braces – or that playing an instrument in the school band might actually be painful because of the metalwork in your mouth. Invisalign gives you the freedom to enjoy being a teen.

Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces
When looking into alternative orthodontic treatments, many families have concerns about the cost. The good news is that Invisalign Teen costs just about the same as traditional braces.
We’re happy to offer one-fee payment plans with 0% interest. We'll also check with your insurance company for orthodontic benefits since many dental insurance policies actually cover orthodontic treatment for patients under eighteen.

The Invisalign Teen system is most effective at correcting mild to moderate cases of the most common orthodontic issues. If your case is more severe or complex, you may need more precise tooth control than what a removable aligner can achieve.
By scheduling your first free exam, your doctor can determine if Invisalign Teen would be a good fit for your specific orthodontic issues.
