Invisalign Teen is an alternative to metal braces for many teenagers. Made from clear, BPA-free plastic, Invisalign Teen aligners are almost invisible and easier to maintain than braces. Just like Invisalign for adults, Invisalign Teen is more aesthetically-pleasing and requires less restrictions on what you can eat.
Invisible/Clear Braces for Teens
While braces can be damaged by certain foods and may require emergency trips to the orthodontist for repairs, Invisalign Teen aligners are easy for teens to wear. They can be removed when eating or brushing and flossing and are replaced every few weeks for the next set in the treatment series. Many teens prefer this type of treatment which can also give them a beautiful, healthy smile. Parents also appreciate making fewer visits to our office for orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign Teen can have a similar length of treatment time as braces. Each aligner creates slight pressure on the teeth to move them into the desired position.
