A Parent’s Guide to Invisalign for Teens

Don’t make your teen suffer with bulky metal braces. Today, teens can comfortably and confidently straighten their teeth with clear braces called Invisalign® Teen. Learn all about the care and costs of this special Invisalign for teens.

The Clear Difference of Invisalign for Teens

Invisalign has proven effective as a clear alternative to braces for adults, and now Invisalign Teen is also helping teens straighten their teeth with confidence and comfort. This special version of Invisalign for teens uses clear, customized plastic aligners to slowly shift teeth into their proper position. 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:

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

Five Ways Invisalign Teen Offers More Than Metal Braces

Just as Invisalign makes living with braces much better for adults, this special Invisalign for teens eases the braces experience for teens. These clear braces are an attractive alternative to metal braces for the following reasons:

  1. No irritation from sharp metal brackets and wires
  2. Easy to maintain an active lifestyle, from playing sports to enjoying social activities
  3. No need to feel self-conscious
  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 their Invisalign provider if the set of clear braces is lost.

The Cost of Care

On average, the cost of Invisalign Teen treatment is about the same as treatment with traditional 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.
