What Is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen is a new orthodontic treatment option designed specifically for teenagers and based off the revolutionary Invisalign System. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign Teen uses clear, removable plastic trays called aligners to straighten teeth. Here's what you need to know about Invisalign Teen:

  • It's a virtually invisible way for teens to get a new smile without braces
  • Uses a series of removable, see-through aligners that fit directly over the teeth
  • No brackets, wires, or metal of any kind
  • Each aligner is custom-manufactured for maximum comfort

The Invisalign Teen Treatment Process

Wondering how Invisalign Teen works? While every patient is different and the specifics of treatment depend on the orthodontic condition, Invisalign Teen treatment usually goes as follows:

  • Wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day
  • Remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss
  • Wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks before switching to the next pair
  • With each new set, your teeth will gradually move to their new positions
  • Visit us for a checkup every 8-10 weeks
  • Treatment normally lasts between 6 and 24 months

What Can Invisalign Teen Treat?

In the past, Invisalign only worked for a limited range of orthodontic conditions – but thanks to advances in the technology, we can now use Invisalign Teen to treat a wide range of orthodontic problems. Whether you're seeking Invisalign in Schertz or any other location we serve, we can use it to treat any of the following malocclusions:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing Issues
