The Invisalign Teen Difference

Posted in Blog

Invisalign has created a unique line of aligners geared to the specific needs of busy teenager. To find out what makes Invisalign Teen different from the standard line, read on!


Teenagers make up a significant portion of Invisalign orthodontic patients. However, with standard Invisalign aligners, many teens ran onto some problems specifically related to just being a teen!

With Invisalign Teen, the makers of Invisalign seek to address the unique needs of today’s busy teens.

Here’s how they did it:

Compliance Indicators

Invisalign Teen aligners feature small blue dots that fade away after a full two weeks of wear.

How does this help teens, in particular?

On average, teenage Invisalign patients are less compliant to their treatment schedule than adult patients are. This means that they are more likely to remove their aligners more frequently, and for longer intervals than prescribed by their orthodontists.

As a result, it can be difficult to keep track of how much longer they are supposed to wear a given set of aligners. The compliance indicators help remedy this issue because they will only fade away once the aligners have been worn for a full two weeks-worth of time, making it easier for teens to get back on track.

Eruption Tabs

Invisalign Teen can be prescribed for younger teenagers whose adult teeth are not quite done erupting, thanks to the addition of eruption tabs. These tabs leave space in the aligners for the teeth to finish growing in.

Replacement Aligners

Teenagers are at a greater risk of losing or damaging their aligners. This is in part due to the fact that they take them out more often than their adult counterparts, and leave them out longer. Invisalign Teen comes with replacement aligners so that if a set of aligners is damaged, treatment can continue without missing a beat!
