What is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen is an innovative braces system that uses clear plastic trays to create stunning results. Instead of brackets and wires like traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligner trays that gradually guide your teen’s teeth into the desired position. 

Invisalign effectively treats various conditions, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite

Teens love the comfort and freedom that the clear, removable trays provide! Your teen will receive new aligner trays every 1-3 weeks. Wearing the aligners 20-22 hours a day can help your teen achieve the smile of their dreams.

Dr. Jesse is recognized as Top 1% of Invisalign providers in the US, meaning that he sees more Invisalign cases than 99% of other orthodontists in the country. His Invisalign expertise has helped teens in Columbus, Pickerington, and Canal Winchester boost their confidence and overall health!

Is Invisalign Teen Right For My Teenager?

Invisalign is a fantastic treatment, but we will still need to confirm it is the best option for your teen. During your teen’s consultation, we will introduce ourselves, give you all an office tour, conduct an exam of your teen’s smile, discuss treatment options, and design a custom treatment plan.

When considering treatments, Dr. Ron and Dr. Jesse will weigh the following:

  • The complexity of your teen’s condition
  • Your teen’s lifestyle demands
  • Your teen’s age
  • Your budget

The experienced team at Carmen Orthodontics can’t wait to meet your teen and learn about their orthodontic goals. Check out the testimonials from our clients to learn more about how we can help your teen.

How Do Invisible Braces for Teens work?

The journey toward a healthy smile for your teen begins with a free consultation. We use the iTero® ElementTM Scanner, an advanced 3D scanning technology, to create a model of your teen’s teeth and then show the projected results after an Invisalign treatment. 

Once we understand your teen’s condition, we will create a treatment plan and your teen will receive their full set of custom-made aligner trays. Each plastic tray, which will need to be switched out on a weekly basis, gently shifts your teen’s smile into the desired alignment. 

It is essential that your teen wears their aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat or brush. This will help ensure your teen stays on their projected treatment timeline.

The Pros and Cons of Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen improves your teen’s health using comfortable, discreet appliances. There are many reasons teens love Invisalign, including:

Increased comfort

The aligner trays are smooth, flexible plastic appliances that fit the contours of your teen’s smile. There are no brackets, wires, or elastic bands required. This can ease your teen’s feelings toward orthodontic treatment.

Discreet design

Invisalign provides effective treatment using virtually invisible trays. This can help ensure your teen shares their smile with confidence during treatment.

Removable appliances

Invisalign aligners are removable, so your teen can continue eating their favorite foods and brush easily. Maintaining a regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing schedule are easy with Invisalign and can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Fewer check-in appointments

There are no brackets or wires to adjust, so your teen’s schedule won’t be disrupted by frequent check-in appointments. Instead, we will examine their progress about every 12 weeks.

Predictable results

Carmen Orthodontics is ranked among the top 1% of Invisalign providers, meaning we have consistently provided dazzling results for teens in Columbus, Pickerington, and Canal Winchester for years. Our skills and experience allow us to get the best possible results for your teen!

While Invisalign Teen has proven itself to be an effective treatment option for many, you and your teen will want to consider the following:

Trays can be lost

When your teen isn’t wearing their aligners, they should store them in the plastic case to prevent the trays from being lost or broken.

Treatment compliance

Your teen can get the most from their Invisalign treatment by wearing their aligners for 20-22 hours a day. While the trays are removable, it is essential your teen remains disciplined in wearing them consistently.

Complexity of the case

Generally, Invisalign is ideal for patients with mild to moderate conditions. However, Dr. Ron and Dr. Jesse are experts who understand how to use aligners to get results in even the most complex cases.


Invisalign may cost more than other treatments. The total cost of your teen’s treatment will depend on the case complexity, treatment timeline, and treatment plan compliance. We accept insurance and major credit cards and happily offer payment plans that can fit your budget.
