What Is Invisalign® Teen?
Invisalign® for teens is one of the best ways to correct common problems in adolescents. Unlike metal braces that can make it challenging to care for their natural teeth, these aligners make it a breeze. The best feature, no one needs to know that they are having dental treatments done, thus avoiding the ‘metal mouth’ commentary from friends and others at school.

Is Invisalign® Teen Right For Your Child?
As a parent, it can be difficult to decide which is the best course of treatment for your teenager. Metal braces are always an option, and they do the job very well at fixing gaps and bite problems. But they can also be difficult to care for, uncomfortable, and for some teens embarrassing to wear. When considering a lengthy treatment period of a year or more, cost should be a minimal factor. Invisalign® is more expensive than traditional metal braces, but they offer significant benefits that may be better for your child.
- Results up to 2x faster than metal braces.
- More comfortable.
- Virtually invisible – No one needs to know dental work is being done.
- Aligners can be used after treatment time to maintain results.
- Fewer restrictions; when compared to metal braces.
Invisalign® is perfect for kids that have all their permanent teeth. Typically, Invisalign® can be started between the ages of 10-14 but is dependant on all the permanent teeth be in place, aside from the 12-year molars.
If you’ve noticed your child’s smile starting to have imperfections or has been getting worse, there is no better time to see Image Dental for a consultation for braces. Dr. Stephen Nozaki will perform an exam and take x-rays to see if now is the right time for your child to begin treatment.
What To Expect From Invisalign® Teen
It’s likely that both you and your teen have questions about what to expect with Invisalign® Teens. After all, braces and aligners are a commitment. The treatment times do vary patient to patient, but for most, you can expect at least one year in either Invisalign® or metal braces. The most significant difference between the two is the functionality.
With Invisalign®, your child can remove the aligners to care for their teeth or when wanting to eat. Metal braces can be somewhat cumbersome for children, because of the discomfort and having to avoid certain activities, but Invisalign® gives them the freedom to live their life without all the restrictions.
The total treatment time will depend on the severity of the bite or gap problems. However, most patients can expect to have amazing results in just a year with Invisalign®. Aligners are customized to fit the patient and are replaced as often as every two weeks for best results.
Smile More – Without The Stigma of Metal Braces
Metal braces have long been the standard of care for adolescents and teens to fix gaps and bite issues. But they came with a significant downside, of peers being not so kind and understanding. Often this would lead teens to feel more self-conscious, and during the High School years, that’s the last thing any kid wants to feel. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® is completely unnoticeable! What this means for your teen, is they can continue smiling in social situations, and no one will know they are correcting their smile.
Being a teen has its own set of challenges, but improving the smile doesn’t have to be one of them. Invisalign® has quickly grown as the top choice for teens because clear aligners won’t affect them socially or make them feel embarrassed or less confident.
The Easiest Way To Straighten Teeth – Invisalign® Is The Clear Choice!
Imagine your teen being thrilled with their smile and how happy they will be to flash their pearly whites for photos. Correcting alignment problems goes deeper than just appearance; it can also help fix phonetic issues as well as difficulties eating. While the primary focus can be to straighten teeth for aesthetic reasons, several benefits outside of this can be gained from having Invisalign®.
Because clear aligners are removable and more comfortable, teens are more likely to continue treatment and not be discouraged at the time it takes for results. While most can expect to see changes within 3-4 months, it can take up to a year to correct most issues. Teens can be impatient and want results instantaneously, it’s only natural, but when they have a dental device that is comfortable and doesn’t impact their life significantly as with metal braces, it can be a much easier process, for both the teen and the parents.
