Invisalign® Teen treatment is ideal for busy parents and teens because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets. Invisalign® Teen often requires fewer appointments (than traditional braces) because we deliver 8 aligners at a time, and the appointments are often shorter! Our typical Invisalign® Teen patient is seen once every 8 weeks for a total average treatment time of 12 to 24 months.
Great for busy parents & teens
Great for sports & band
Invisalign® Teen straightens teeth just like braces, but in a different way. It is an ideal choice for teens who are active in sports or who play wind or brass instruments. Since the aligners are made of a thin plastic material, they are inconspicuous when playing instruments. There are no braces or wires that will change how you play your instrument! If you play sports, you can continue to play just like before! Most teens participate in sports with their aligners in.
Great for eating & brushing normally
Do you love crunchy snacks like apples or popcorn? Do you want to continue your normal routine for brushing and flossing? You’ve probably already heard from friends that with braces you won’t be able to eat anything and that brushing and flossing is more difficult. With Invisalign® Teen you can eat just about whatever you want and brush like before. Unlike traditional braces, your Invisalign® Teen aligners are removable, which means you can go ahead and eat all the things you love without worrying about breaking a bracket or losing a rubber band.

But will it cost more than braces?
Probably not. Every patient’s needs are different and there are many factors that determine the cost of Invisalign® treatment. In most cases, Invisalign® is comparable in cost to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans the same way braces would be. Financing options are also available to make Invisalign® more affordable for your family.
