Invisalign® Teen is an innovative orthodontic treatment designed specifically for teenagers who want a straighter smile without the hassle and visibility of traditional braces. Developed by Align Technology, the same company behind the groundbreaking Invisalign system, Invisalign Teen offers a discreet, comfortable, and effective alternative for adolescents seeking to improve the alignment of their teeth.

How Invisalign Teen Works

Invisalign Teen employs the same fundamental technology as the original Invisalign system but incorporates features specifically tailored to the unique needs and lifestyles of teenagers. The process begins with an initial consultation with one of our Invisalign dentists. During this consultation, we will assess the teenager’s oral condition and determine whether Invisalign Teen is the most suitable treatment option.

Similar to standard Invisalign, a series of clear, custom-made aligners are created for the teenager. These aligners are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic and fit snugly over the teeth, applying gentle pressure to gradually shift them into their desired positions. The aligners are virtually invisible when worn, allowing teenagers to maintain their confidence throughout the treatment process.

Advantages of Invisalign Teen

  • Discreet Appearance: One of the primary reasons teenagers and their parents opt for Invisalign Teen is its clear and nearly invisible appearance. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign Teen aligners blend in naturally with the teeth. This feature is especially appreciated by image-conscious adolescents who may feel self-conscious about their appearance during orthodontic treatment.

  • Removable Aligners: Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, providing teenagers with more flexibility and convenience in their daily lives. The ability to take out the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing means there are no food restrictions, making it easier for teenagers to maintain a healthy diet and oral hygiene routine.

  • Comfortable and Safe: Invisalign Teen aligners are made of smooth plastic, reducing the risk of irritation or discomfort commonly associated with traditional braces. They also do not have sharp wires or brackets that can cause mouth sores or injuries during physical activities, making them a safer option for active teenagers.

  • Blue Compliance Indicators: the aligners are equipped with small blue compliance indicators that gradually fade with wear. These indicators help parents and dentists monitor the teen’s compliance with wearing the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day, ensuring the treatment progresses as planned.

  • Replacement Aligners: Invisalign Teen recognises that teenagers may be prone to misplacing or accidentally damaging their aligners. The treatment includes additional sets of aligners, called replacement aligners, to accommodate such situations without disrupting the overall treatment progress.
