Invisalign Teen®

Now teens don’t have to worry about embarrassing metal braces in their yearbook photos or Facebook profiles – introducing Invisalign Teen®! Invisalign Teen® is the clear way to straighten teeth without metal braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means that you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth, and there are no wires, metal, or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

The makers of Invisalign® went to leading orthodontists, parents, and teens themselves to custom-design an Invisalign® system just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With blue-to-clear color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign Teen® is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles!

What is Invisalign Teen®?

  • A clear way to straighten your teeth without braces
  • A series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners
  • Uses no metal, wires, or brackets
  • Custom-made for comfort

How does Invisalign Teen® work?

  • Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.
  • Remove only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • Your teeth will move gradually each week.
  • Visit us every 8 to 10 weeks.
  • Total treatment time averages 6 to 15 months.
  • The average number of aligners is between 18 and 30.

What conditions does Invisalign Teen® treat?

By using its advanced technology, Invisalign Teen® can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were usually treated with traditional braces. These conditions include:
  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
Many dentists are now offering Invisalign® to their patients. However, only orthodontists like Dr. Cheryl L. Held are specialized in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Dr. Held received an additional 30 months of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. And, for over 15 years as an orthodontist since then, Dr. Held has been moving teeth, correcting bites, and guiding growth as her main focus every day that she has practiced.
