Invisible braces for teenagers
Invisalign is designed to straighten fully grown adult teeth so it is not a suitable treatment for children. However, there is a version of Invisalign that has been specifically designed for teenagers, called Invisalign Teen. This is a slightly modified version of the Invisalign system that also takes into account teenagers’ active and robust lifestyles.

How does Invisalign® Teen work?
Invisalign Teen incorporates blue wear indicators to gauge wear time and has special features designed to compensate for the eruption of adult teeth. And taking into account active teenage lifestyles, six free individual replacement aligners are included in case any are lost or broken.

FAQs

No, Invisalign® uses a system of custom-made ‘aligners’ which are changed approximately every two weeks and gently move your teeth to a new position.
Treatment time will depend on the complexity of each individual case. Treatments can take from as little as 7 months for minor changes up to 18 months.
Unlike traditional fixed braces Invisalign® uses no metal brackets or wires. Invisalign are virtually invisible aligners made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth.
Any age – but there is a special system for teenagers – Invisalign® Teen. Your Orthodontist will advise what is best for you.
