Why Invisalign Treatment Can Work for Children & Teens
Imagine a smile transformation without the daily hassle of braces! That’s the magic of Invisalign® aligners—a top choice for kids and teens.
Teenage years bring unique dental challenges. While Invisalign treatments for teens can be a tad more intricate than for adults, their effectiveness remains unrivaled. The beauty? Every treatment is tailor-made! Thanks to cutting-edge 3D technology, you can peek into the future and see the dazzling results even before starting.
And here’s a bonus: Most Invisalign journeys wrap up in as few as 12 months, compared to the lengthy 24 months with traditional braces. So, your teen gets that picture-perfect smile in half the time, minus the metallic glare!
Sure, some teens rock the classic braces look, flaunting colorful ties. But for those who prefer a subtler route, Invisalign boosts confidence with its discreet design. No more holding back those hearty laughs or wide smiles!
Less time in our chair means more time for your teen to shine. With Invisalign, forget about tedious wire adjustments or bracket check-ups. Ready to embrace the clear path to radiant smiles? Dive in here!

How do I clean Invisalign aligners?
- Always rinse your aligners as soon as they are removed from your mouth. It is recommended that you soak your aligner trays with the Invisalign brand crystal cleaning solution every day. This solution removes the bacteria from the aligners.
- Use a soft bristle toothbrush (not your toothbrush that you use daily) to lightly sweep away any debris that remains after the soak.
- After soaking, rinse off the aligners and place back in your mouth.
How long do I wear each set of aligners?
This varies according to your treatment plan. Generally, aligners are worn for two weeks and exchanged for the next set. In some cases, aligners may be worn for as little as a week before they’re switched out. This will depend on your specific treatment plan.
Does Invisalign fit an active lifestyle?
Invisalign treatment is a great choice for an active lifestyle! Your aligners can be worn during nearly any activity, removing them only for eating and cleaning. Invisalign aligners can be worn comfortably while playing sports. When it comes to contact sports, you can remove the aligner and wear a mouthguard that your orthodontist may recommend. Invisalign aligners can also be removed for special occasions if you prefer to do so.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a popular choice because of many benefits:
- Clear aligners for more aesthetic appearance
- Comfortable as it is custom-made to fit your bite
- Affordable (about the same price as traditional metal braces)
- Faster treatment
- Less time spent at the orthodontist
- No restrictions for food
- You can carry out oral hygiene routine much easier than with the traditional brackets and wires
