Invisalign<sup>®</sup> for All Ages: How Teens & Adults Can Benefit

Invisalign clear aligners are a convenient and discreet alternative to traditional braces, making Invisalign the ideal orthodontic treatment for helping adults and teens to achieve a straighter smile. 


Adults and teens can improve their smile without the hassle often associated with traditional wire braces by using Invisalign clear aligners.

Invisalign For Adults

Often adults hesitate to undergo orthodontic treatment because they think it's for children or teenagers. That said, more and more adults are choosing to straighten their smiles and correct alignment issues that were left untreated when they were younger.

Invisalign clear aligners are made of a transparent plastic material, which makes them a very discreet orthodontic treatment option. Invisalign's clear aligners are also comfortable and removable, so adults can easily fit them into their busy lifestyles. 

Invisalign For Teens

Invisalign Teen has been designed to meet the specific needs of teenagers. Invisalign Teen has all of the benefits of the adult Invisalign aligners but also includes additional features including compliance indicators and eruption tabs. 

Invisalign Teen's compliance indicators are small blue dots on the backs of the aligners that fade away once they have been worn for two full weeks. Compliance indicators help teens to keep track of their treatment and switch to the next set of aligners at the correct time. 

Eruption tabs provide space for their second molars to grow in during the duration of treatment. Eruption tabs can help to keep the molars straight, and prevent them from growing in crooked or too far into another molar’s space.
