Invisalign® for your Teen (or Tween)
No two teens (or tweens) are the same, and neither are their cases! Teens have unique needs in terms of treatment and lifestyle. Braces can interfere with school, social life, playing musical instruments, and athletics. One study found Invisalign Teen® patients are up to 70% less likely to be teased than patients in braces.
With Invisalign Teen® there’s no brackets, no wires ... just straight teeth! Engineered with special age-appropriate features, such as Eruption Compensation, Compliance Indicators, and Terminal Molar Tabs, Invisalign Teen® tailors the clear aligner system to this growing age group.
Worn 20 to 22 hours per day, with office visits necessary only about every 8 to 12 weeks, Invisalign Teen® treatment won’t interfere with school schedules or extracurricular activities.
No two teen cases are the same, which is why Align Technology is constantly advancing its Invisalign digital treatment solutions. This allows our office to deliver a unique, customized teeth-straightening solution that’s more precise and keeps your teen moving forward.
With the Invisalign system’s proprietary innovations, such as SmartTrack® material, your teen’s smile can transform up to 50% faster. * And as your son or daughter becomes the person you’ve always seen, he or she will continue to enjoy the things that make a teen unique.
Your youngster’s smile journey begins with a scan or impressions. We will work closely with Invisalign treatment specialists to develop a complete digital treatment plan to plot your teen’s best smile with care from start to finish.
Your teen will receive Invisalign clear aligners created with the Invisalign system’s proprietary SmartTrack material. Throughout treatment, you can monitor your son or daughter’s compliance through an indicator on the aligner. Your teen will wear the aligners for 22 hours per day, but can easily remove them so there are fewer interruptions to his or her lifestyle.
As your teen progresses through treatment, his or her smile and life will transform through a series of small, expertly designed shifts. And with the Invisalign Teen Guarantee, you have the option to switch to wires and brackets if your teen decides against Invisalign treatment within the first six months.
They keep moving. Make sure their smile keeps up.
