Getting the smile you want just got easier with Invisalign Teen™! Playing sports or eating? Just take out your aligners when you need to!
Invisalign Teen™ achieves the same results at the traditional Invisalign® product, but it includes a few key features designed with teenage patients in mind:
Invisalign® doesn’t work if you don’t wear the aligners. Little blue dots on Invisalign Teen™ aligners only fade away with wear. This helps us determine if you’re wearing them for the prescribed length of time.
Busy teens may misplace an aligner on occasion, and Invisalign® understands that. For that reason, you get up to six free replacement aligners if needed during the course of treatment.
The teen product also includes specially engineered features that address the natural eruption of second molars and root control issues common in teenage patients.

What is Invisalign Teen?
Sturbridge Invisalign Teen treatment is the version of Invisalign braces specifically made for orthodontic treatment in teenagers.
How does Invisalign Teen differ from other orthodontic options?
Invisalign Teen treatment in Sturbridge gives your teen more freedom during their orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is clear, which makes it a more discreet treatment option, and it is also removable, giving your teen the freedom to eat anything they want.
At what age can my teen get Invisalign?
Though some orthodontists will provide the treatment for kids aged 6-10, using these appliances requires that we wait until the child’s baby teeth have fallen out, which is usually around 12 or 13 years old.
What options are available to teenagers?
Aside from treatment with Invisalign Teen, your teen could also undergo orthodontic treatment with traditional metal or ceramic braces. Consult with your teen’s orthodontists for the best treatment plan for your teen.
What happens if my teen loses an aligner?
First of all, contact your orthodontist. They could either recommend you replace your teen’s lost aligner or that they simply move on to the next set.
How long will Invisalign Teen treatment take?
The length of the treatment with Sturbridge Invisalign for teens depends on your teenager’s individual case. Some teens can achieve their final results in as little as six months. Typical treatment time is about 12 months.
