Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign® for teens

Orthodontic treatment is a part of life for many teenagers. Fortunately, today’s teens have more treatment options than ever before. Invisalign Teen is a method that clears many of the nervous feelings your teen may have about orthodontic treatment. Invisalign Teen uses a series of clear, removable trays that gradually shape the patient’s smile. Teens love Invisalign Teen because the trays are less noticeable than braces and can be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss.

Teens in Maryville, Tennessee, can receive Invisalign Teen from the experts at Owens Orthodontics. Dr. Mark Owens has years of experience putting teenagers on the path toward straighter smiles that last well into adulthood. Schedule a consultation appointment to start your child with Invisalign Teen.

Is your teen a good candidate for Invisalign?

If you’re considering orthodontic treatment for your teenager, Invisalign Teen could be the ideal solution. Owens Orthodontics offers Invisalign treatment for various issues, including overbites, underbites, gaps and crooked teeth. Invisalign Teen can be an effective treatment method if your teenager:

  • Has lost all of their baby teeth and all permanent teeth have grown in.

  • Is responsible enough to meet care requirements and wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day.

  • Only needs minor adjustments.

  • Has a normal jaw structure.


How Invisalign Teen works

Invisalign Teen is easy to start and can straighten your teenager’s smile in a matter of weeks. The process begins with a complimentary consultation appointment. Owens Orthodontics’ experts will assess your teen’s teeth to determine if Invisalign Teen would be an effective approach to treatment. If so, we’ll use the latest digital technology to capture a 3D model of your teen’s teeth. This model will help us develop numerous plastic trays that replicate your teen’s mouth — each closer to a straight smile than the last.

Teenagers’ mouths are still growing, so Invisalign Teen includes up to six trays for no extra charge. Your teen will wear each tray for two weeks at a time. Each mold features blue dots that gradually fade to help your child know when to switch to the next level. These dots also help our orthodontists ensure your teen is following through with their treatment. We’ll schedule check-up appointments every few weeks to make sure your teen’s treatment is on schedule.
