What Parents Need to Know about Invisalign for Teens

Does your teen need braces, but doesn’t want the conspicuous look of a mouth full of metal? It’s time to discover the clear braces called Invisalign® Teen, which offer the same clear benefits of the original Invisalign in a special version of Invisalign for teens.

Face the Facts about Invisalign for Teens

For years, Invisalign has been the clear alternative to braces for adults. Today, Invisalign Teen brings the same benefits to teens to help them comfortably and confidently straighten their teeth. Designed especially for teens, Invisalign for teens uses a series of sets of customized, clear plastic aligners to move teeth into their ideal place. Invisalign for teens differs from metal braces because it’s removable at certain times, yet these clear braces must be worn for at least 20 hours a day to be effective. And every two weeks, the Invisalign provider will replace them with a new set to continually straighten teeth. Invisalign Teen can be used to correct the following dental problems:

  • Poorly spaced teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

Five Reasons Invisalign Teen Is Clearly Better Than Metal Braces

With Invisalign for teens, straightening teeth is a much easier and more enjoyable experience for teens. These clear braces are an attractive alternative to metal braces for the following reasons:

  1. Allows for maintaining an active lifestyle, from playing sports to socializing
  2. No negative effect on self-esteem
  3. No pain and problems from piercing metal brackets and wires
  4. Easier time eating, brushing, and flossing because the Invisalign Teen braces are removable
  5. Fewer emergency dental visits because teens receive extra replacement aligners from an Invisalign provider in case the set of clear braces is lost.

Treatment Time and Costs

On average, the cost of Invisalign Teen treatment is about same amount as metal braces. But be aware that treatment costs vary by the patient and the geographic location. Only an Invisalign provider will be able to determine the cost of your teen’s treatment.
