Clear Aligners Just For Teens
Invisalign Teen comes with the same clear, removable plastic aligners that come with standard treatment. However, there are a number of additional features that make the process easier for teens. Request an appointment to learn more.
How is Invisalign Teen different?
With Invisalign Teen, Invisalign has addressed the barriers that teenagers sometimes face when it comes to successful treatment. Features include:
Teens are more likely to take their aligners out, both more frequently and for longer periods of time than prescribed. This can be very disruptive to treatment.
Invisalign Teen aligners come with compliance indicators on them to help remedy this. These small blue dots, located on the backs of the aligners, fade away after the aligners have been worn for two full weeks (336 hours), to help teens get back on track.
Stageable Eruption Tabs
Invisalign Teen aligners also have stageable 'eruption tabs'. These provide space for the second molars as they grow in. Eruption tabs can help align the molars as they grow, and prevent them from growing in crooked.
6 Sets of Replacement Aligners
Invisalign Teen includes six sets of replacement aligners. These help reduce the delays in treatment and dental health problems in cases when aligners are lost or broken.
