Invisalign Teen has been specifically developed for under-18s to straighten the teeth more comfortably and discreetly than conventional fixed braces. Although many of the benefits are the same as standard Invisalign, the Teen version comes with more aligners, and each aligner includes a small dot that changes colour from blue to clear to identify how often a teenager wears their aligners.

Following an initial assessment of the teeth, your teenager will visit the practice every 6-8 weeks to receive the next series of clear aligners.

One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign Teen over conventional braces is the flexibility to remove the aligners. Removal takes seconds and this allows your teenager the convenience of eating, drinking, brushing and flossing without having to worry about the irritation and inconvenience associated with metal braces. If your teenager plays a contact sport or a wind instrument the aligners can also be removed for playing sports or music practice.

For maximum effect and to minimise the length of treatment, we recommend aligners are worn for 22 hours per day.
