Invisalign Teen works the same as Invisalign using transparent custom-moulded aligners used to move teeth. It has been specifically designed for teenagers with special features including blue wear-indicators to help your dental practitioner, you, and your teenager to gauge wear time, compensation for the eruption of canines, second premolars and second molars and six free individual replacement aligners are included in case any get lost or misplaced.
The perfect choice specifically designed for teenagers!
Invisalign Teen aligners fit into a teenager’s life beautifully. Now teens don’t have to be self-conscious when they are out socially, take school photos, post pictures online, or participate in any of the other activities they love. Even better, Invisalign Teen starts working with the first set of aligners. So as time goes by, you can watch their teeth gradually get straighter and healthier!

Invisible braces specifically designed for teenagers?
Invisalign has several treatment options available for teenagers, depending on the stage of teeth development. Some teenagers will be suitable for the same Invisalign treatment as adult patients. Younger teenagers, or those who haven’t got all of their adult teeth erupted can be treated with Invisalign Teen – a treatment designed specifically for teenagers. Your dental practitioner will determine which treatment best suits your individual needs and the condition of your teeth.
Invisalign Teen has been developed with teenagers, parents and leading orthodontists who understand the active lifestyles and unique treatment needs of teenage patients. The Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same Invisalign technology used for Invisalign aligners, moving teeth gradually without the need for metal or wires. But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, there are a few special features:
Invisalign Clear Aligners are made with Invisalign’s SmartTrack material, supplying the necessary durability and strength to move the teenage teeth in a combination with the flexibility and clarity needed for a modern orthodontic solution.
Blue wear indicators
Blue wear-indicators at the rear of the aligners that fade from blue to clear will help the doctor and parents identify if the patient has been wearing their aligners for the sufficient length of time.
In order to compensate for the eruption of canines, second premolars and second molars, special features have been created.
Invisalign Teen with mandibular advancement
Invisalign Teen with mandibular advancement is a clear aligner solution for Class II correction. Offering the same benefits of the Invisalign Teen advanced clear aligner system, it combines features previously only available from treatment with functional appliances. The Invisalign Teen with mandibular advancement aligners have been specifically designed for moving the lower jaw forward while simultaneously aligning the teethm this makes the treatment much more efficient and patient-friendly.
