Almost-Invisible Braces for Teens

A clear alternative

Your Teen Will Love Invisalign®

In the past, straightening teeth using Invisalign was really only an option for adults. With Invisalign Teen, that is simply no longer the case. Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners.

Phoenix and Scottsdale orthodontists can now offer teens an option to traditional metal braces.


Why Was Traditional Invisalign Only Available For Adults?

  1. Originally, Invisalign required that all of the permanent teeth have fully erupted in the mouth. Invisalign Teen in Phoenix now accommodates for the continuing and natural eruption of the permanent teeth. It still provides the kind of effective tooth realignment offered by traditional teen braces.
  2. Orthodontists were skeptical that teens would wear their Invisalign trays as directed (20-22 hours/day). It turns out this concern was unfounded. It turns out that most teens do a really good job of wearing their aligners as directed. Those that don’t, end up with metal braces very quickly.

Recognizing the unique treatment needs of young adults, Invisalign Teen has made it possible for many Arizona teens to avoid metal braces and still get the beautiful smile they want.


Benefits of Invisalign

Virtually invisible braces that allow your teen to smile confidently even during tooth realignment? Yes, please! Not only can your teen benefit from this innovative technology, but you as a parent can rest easy knowing Invisalign Teen in Phoenix is as effective as metal braces in straightening teeth.

Here are just a few of the benefits:

  • Teens can smile confidently and with no self-consciousness for photos (especially those all-important graduation photos!)
  • Invisalign Teen takes about the same amount of time as traditional metal braces.
