Invisalign for teenagers (ages 12-18)
The early teenage years are the optimal time
to straighten misaligned teeth. At this time,
all your adult teeth should have emerged
& are still relatively easy to shift and
adjust via orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign Teen offers a more convenient,
less noticeable way to straighten your teeth
with many lifestyle & oral health benefits.

Invisalign Teen – the benefits of clear aligners for teenagers
Invisalign clear aligners are ideal for people of all ages, as long as you are in good oral health. However, the optimal age range to get orthodontic treatment is actually between 12 and 13 years old. Why?
At this life stage, preteens or teens have almost all their adult teeth in place while their jawbones and oral structure are still developing and adaptable – thus making it easier to shift and seat tooth roots into new gum positions than later on in adult life.
The other benefits that a teenager can experience from Invisalign aren’t too different from any other age group’s experience, except that they get to enjoy them much earlier in life.
The benefits of Invisalign Teen include:
- Increased “smile” confidence
- Improved natural facial aesthetics
- Corrected bite for better chewing and biting function
- Reduced risk of tooth wear & tear from previously misaligned teeth and uneven bites
- Simplified oral care and hygiene routine with less nooks & crannies to clean
- Improved oral health by eliminating more hard-to-reach areas where hidden plaque may develop
- Minimalist design suitable for active teen lifestyles that include playing sports and playing musical intsruments.
How are Invisalign Teen aligners designed to help teenagers?
