How Invisalign Teen works:

Invisalign treatment differs from traditional non-removable metal brackets because Invisalign comprises a set of a few transparent, custom-moulded clear aligners, which can be removed for up to 2 hours each day. This allows for more freedom in any busy teenager’s lifestyle. Invisalign Teen also has a few special features, designed specifically for teenagers:

  • Invisalign Teen comes with blue wear-indicators. These fade from blue to clear on each clear aligner to help you, your orthodontist and your teenager themselves to gauge wear over time.
  • Six free replacement aligners are included (in case any get lost or misplaced, e.g. when playing sports).
  • Invisalign Teen aligners have special features designed to guide the growth of new teeth (canines, second premolars and second molars), helping them to get to a planned, straighter position.

Conditions which can be treated with Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen treatment is clinically proven to be effective. In the hands of experienced orthodontists at Happy Kids Dental, it can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues.

Specifically, Invisalign Teen can help with the following conditions:

Overly crowded or crooked teeth

Overly crowded teeth can get worse over time, and result in severely crooked teeth. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.

Gapped Teeth

Spacing issues and gaps between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and increased risk of periodontal disease.

Deep Bite

Deep bite can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.



An underbite can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.

Open Bite

Open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, and even speech impairment. It can also lead to greater issues like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD)

Crossbite causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.

Invisalign Teen treatment process:

  1. The Consultation
    Once your Invisalign Provider has confirmed you’re eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. These records will be used to create a ClinCheck® 3D treatment plan, just for you.
  2. The Aligners
    After being custom-made and shipped to your Provider’s office, you’ll receive a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.
  3. The Results
    You’ll visit your Provider around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.

Invisalign Teen Q&A

Parents and teens often ask us questions about Invisalign Teen braces when they come to visit our team of orthodontists at Happy Kids Dental.

We’ve answered some of the most common questions here:

Do braces really help?

Braces can help improve your teen’s smile and make their teeth straighter. Invisalign Teen braces can also improve your teen’s dental health and overall health, since untreated problems with bite can interfere with eating, especially chewing. If your teen has a bad bite, they might also be prone to cavities or gum disease because it may be hard for them to clean their teeth.
