Benefits of Invisalign for Teens

No Extracurricular Restrictions

Invisalign® for teens allows you to continue playing sports or musical instruments without the worry of cutting your lip on metal brackets and wires.

Done in Half The Time!

Most Invisalign® patients complete their treatment in as little as 12 months, as long as the aligners are working according to schedule.

No Diet Restrictions

You won’t have any diet restrictions, as you can remove your aligners to eat. You’ll also remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth, so you won’t have to work around any brackets or wires!

Considerations for Invisalign for Teens

It’s important to discuss all aspects of Invisalign treatment with your local orthodontist to ensure that it is the right option for you.

Some points to keep in mind when considering Invisalign for Teens:

Wearing Aligners as Directed

Invisalign clear aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours per day and should only be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. If they are not worn as prescribed, treatment may be less effective or take longer.

Potential Misplacement

Because aligners are removable, they also have the potential to get lost. For example, if your teen removes them to eat and forgets to put them back on, they may become misplaced.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost for Teens?

Smile Doctors orthodontists make custom-designed clear aligners surprisingly affordable. Invisalign® treatment may even be covered by many insurance plans.

The cost of Invisalign® aligners for teens depends on the length of treatment, specific treatment details, and insurance coverage. Our doctors and treatment coordinators are happy to develop a payment plan that meets your budget.
