Invisalign® Teen

What is Invisalign Teen?

Having braces isn’t every teen’s dream, that’s a fact. Being able to participate in sports and extracurricular activities while building confidence are key expectations of many adolescents, and adding braces into the mix isn’t always met with the best reaction. That’s why there’s Invisalign Teen, a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without bulky brackets and wires getting in the way. What is Invisalign Teen? It may just be the answer to your teen’s orthodontic dilemma.


How the Invisalign Treatments Work

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen work relatively the same. They are a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually guide your teeth into the desired position and are changed out based on your orthodontist’s instructions. Custom-made to fit your teeth, these aligners are to be worn 20-22 hours each and every day for maximum effectiveness.

How Invisalign Teen Differs from Invisalign

Invisalign Teen is designed with teenagers in mind, as all teens are candidates for this product. This means extra precautions are put in place to help teens comply with the treatment and ensure they’re getting the very best results possible. In order to ensure teens are wearing their aligners for the recommended amount of time each day, blue compliance indicators are placed on each aligner, which fade from blue to clear with use. This helps teens and parents know the aligners are being worn for the proper duration.

Since some teens don’t have all of their permanent teeth yet, Invisalign Teen comes equipped with room for growth. The aligners leave room for permanent teeth to erupt during the course of treatment. And since we all know unfortunate events occur, Invisalign Teen offers up to six free replacement aligners…just in case.

Benefits of Invisalign Teen

Less restrictions make Invisalign Teen a treatment teens want, as opposed to traditional braces. Since the Invisalign aligners are removable, teens don’t have to worry about food restrictions and can enjoy their extracurricular activities, such as band, sports and theater with ease. Brushing, flossing and basic oral hygiene is also simple with this type of treatment, as there’s nothing getting in the way, and teens won’t have to worry about poking wires and brackets causing problems either. Additionally, there is less time spent at your orthodontist’s office since there’s no need for adjustments.

Effectiveness of Invisalign Teen

Some teens (males especially) are hesitant when it comes to orthodontic treatment, but Invisalign Teen is a game changer. Since Invisalign Teen doesn’t interfere with everyday life, teen compliance is equal to or better than adult compliance, and orthodontists are getting the same results as braces, provided Invisalign is being worn accordingly.

Making Life Easier with Invisalign Teen

More and more teens are asking for Invisalign Teen, and it’s no surprise. This treatment method offers teens the chance to correct their smile without limiting them. To recap, Invisalign Teen has many benefits, including:

  • No food restrictions
  • No disruption during extracurricular activities
  • Shorter visits with your orthodontist
  • Helpful compliance indicators
  • Room for growth
  • Up to six replacement trays
  • Better self-confidence

Get the same results as braces without feeling self-conscious or being restricted. Consider Invisalign Teen for your teen’s orthodontic treatment.

I took both my children to 5 orthodontist consultations and Dr. Jen was the orthodontist we decided to go with. She is professionally, kind, passionate about helping her patients, knowledgeable on all the latest in the orthodontist world, and overall a wonderful human. When you become a patient with Dr. Jen, everyone in the office knows your name and treats you like you matter. You're not just another number/patient to them. You won't feel like it's a factory office that just does work without even looking at the patients or knowing their name. This is the place to go for honest, passionate, and quality care.

I contacted Jenuine Smiles Orthodontics as I was looking to replace my old metal & plastic retainer with an Invisalign retainer. Not only was I shocked with how quickly I was able to make an appointment, but I couldn't get over how easy and great the entire process was. I was able have my teeth scanned and picked up my retainer the same day. The entire staff was so friendly from the initial contact all the way to me leaving their office. They ensured they answered all of my questions and address any concerns before I left. I highly recommend Jenuine Smiles for any and all orthodontics needs! If I could give a higher rating I would :)
