Why Choose Invisalign Teen

For many teenagers, orthodontic treatment is something of a rite of passage. It’s a symbol of the broader transition to adulthood, and the growth and changes in a teen’s smile mirror their development as a person. Historically, though, adolescent orthodontic treatment has also meant wearing a thick set of metal braces. But now, there’s a new option: Invisalign Teen. As a dedicated family orthodontist serving teens in Roseville, Placerville, Modesto, El Dorado Hills, and Sacramento, CA, we want to shed some light on why you or your child may want to choose Invisalign Teen.

Invisalign for Teenagers in Sacramento

Invisalign Teen is based on the revolutionary Invisalign System, using the same classic system of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. That means Invisalign Teen has all the same advantages of traditional Invisalign, already making it an ideal option for teenagers:

  • Virtually Invisible: Invisalign aligners are nearly impossible to see when worn. This means they won’t show up in school pictures and you won’t have to worry about having braces during prom or other important milestones.
  • Completely Removable: The aligners are easy to pop out for eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing your teeth.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: Because you remove the aligners to eat, you won’t have to restrict your diet in any way. You can still enjoy all your favorite foods during lunch time!
  • Improved Comfort: Because Invisalign aligners are smooth to the touch, they won’t cause the minor cuts and scratches that braces do.

However, in addition to these built-in benefits, Invisalign Teen comes with a few extra features that are custom-tailored to the teenage lifestyle. These include:

  • Built-In Wear Indicators: Each aligner has a Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which signals to doctors, parents, and teens themselves if the aligners are being worn enough or need to be worn more consistently.
  • Eruption Tabs: We can fabricate your aligners with special eruption tabs to hold open space for unerupted teeth, allowing us to treat more patients than ever.
  • Free Replacement Aligners: Every Invisalign Teen treatment course comes with 6 free replacement aligners, so you don’t have to worry about losing or breaking aligners.
