Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen Treatment in Las Vegas

There is a relatively new orthodontic technology that is literally putting a smile on lots of young faces. This treatment uses a system of clear removable aligners made just for teenagers called Invisalign Teen. If you’re a teen who isn’t crazy about the idea of wearing visible metal braces, you may find that Invisalign Teen is the perfect fit for your lifestyle.

With Invisalign Teen, you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods during treatment and won’t have any problems cleaning your teeth because you simply remove the aligners when eating and when brushing & flossing. But perhaps best of all, is the fact that Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible. This means you can improve your smile without ever having to worry about what you look like with appliances on your teeth!

Is Invisalign Teen Right For You?


Is orthodontic treatment using Invisalign clear aligners the right treatment choice for you? The answer to that question all depends upon what type of treatment you need. Conventional metal braces are still the best option for some patients with certain orthodontic problems. And many people are surprised to learn that regular braces are still a popular treatment choice among teenagers as today’s modern metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever before! But now that clear, removable aligners have been designed specifically for teens, a growing number of young people are choosing to wear Invisalign Teen as there are many benefits to enjoy by doing so.

About Invisalign Teen Clear Aligners

Invisalign Teen consists of a series of clear, thin plastic aligner trays which fit snugly over your teeth. As an Invisalign Teen patient, you will be told to wear each aligner tray for about two weeks wherein you will then move on to the next aligner in the series which is slightly different. You will continue this process for the duration of your treatment. Over time, all of these gradual movements will add up to a big change. In the end, you will have a straight, healthy and amazing smile you’ll be proud to show wherever you go!

A Clearly Different Way to Get the Smile Of Your Dreams

Your clear aligners are designed to be worn for 22 hours every day, allowing you to take them out when eating meals, for important social occasions like school photos and when you’re brushing and flossing your teeth. For the majority of the time when wearing your aligners, it’s very difficult for anyone to tell they’re on your teeth. This is a big difference from regular metal braces, for sure! Plus, there are some other advantages to wearing clear aligners which are not so easy to see.

Benefits of Invisalign Teen

One of the main advantages of wearing Invisalign Teen is the fact that you will never have a problem brushing or flossing your teeth like you can when you have metal brackets and wires on your teeth. You just take the aligners out, brush & floss and then pop them back in when done! And since there are no brackets or wires used with Invisalign Teen, there is nothing present that can poke and irritate your cheeks and gums. This means you will never have to schedule emergency appointments with your Las Vegas orthodontist to have a broken bracket replaced or a poking wire fixed.

Complete Food Freedom!

Since you remove the Invisalign Teen aligners when eating, you are free to continue enjoying all those hard, crunchy and sticky foods you love. This is something teenagers really appreciate about this treatment option and for good reason as most teens enjoy foods like hard-crusted breads & pizza crust, crispy apples and chewy granola bars.

A Clear Aligner Designed Just for Teens

Invisalign Teen aligners have been designed to meet the unique orthodontic needs of teenagers. These clever aligners have “compliance indicators’ built right in which are discreet, tiny dots that fade over time as the aligners are worn. This tells the teen, his or her orthodontist and the parents if the teenager is being compliant with wearing the aligners as required. And, Invisalign Teen aligners come with special “eruption tabs” that are designed specifically to hold space for  teeth which have not fully erupted.
