Now teens don’t have to worry about embarrassing metal braces in their yearbook photos or Facebook profiles. Introducing Invisalign for Teens!

Invisalign for Teens is the clear way to straighten teeth without metal braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means 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 to custom-design an Invisalign system that’s just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With blue-to-clear, color-changing aligners to show how long each one has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case any are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign for Teens is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles!

What is Invisalign for Teens?

  • 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 for Teens 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 eight to ten weeks.
  • Total treatment time averages six to 15 months.
  • The average number of aligners is between 18 and 30.

What conditions does Invisalign for Teens treat?

Through its advanced technology, Invisalign for Teens 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 specially trained 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. For more than 15 years as an orthodontist since then, Dr. Held has been moving teeth, correcting bites, and guiding growth as her main focus every day she has practiced.
