We may have grown up during the era of metallic braces, bands, and nightly headgear; and as parents, we understand how emotionally difficult and uncomfortable orthodontic treatment can be for children and teenagers. In 2008, Align Technology, the inventors of Invisalign, developed the modern approach to straightening teeth for younger patients, Invisalign Teen.
Like Invisalign, Invisalign Teen program is specially designed to help correct the teeth without any visible braces that can be easily seen by peers. These transparent teeth aligners that gradually shift teeth into the proper alignment are as effective as braces, but a more comfortable process.
What are the benefits of Invisalign Teen?
- Removable aligners for a more comfortable process
- Better oral hygiene, since brushing and flossing easier than with braces
- The diet is not as restricted as with braces
- Less orthodontic emergencies during treatment
- Confident during treatment and more so, after!
What is the difference between Invisalign and Invisalign Teen?
- Each aligner also comes with a small and inconspicuous Blue Dot Wear Indicator- which helps identify when the patient is ready for next aligner, and at the same time eliminate a parent’s concern regarding compliance
- Align Technology kept in mind that younger patients are still growing, and allowed for the eruption of the second molars
- Unlike regular Invisalign, replacement aligners are available at no additional cost, up to six free replacement aligners
This technology is reserved only for those with the proper skills and expertise necessary to create such a stringent and precise regimen. Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen is a Los Angeles-based orthodontist who is an Elite Provider of Invisalign.
Her practice in So Cal often gets referrals from dentists from as far as San Francisco, France, and even Japan, because of her renowned skill in addressing positional and proportional teeth irregularities.
If your teen has problems with teeth alignment or malocclusion and you are considering braces, consider Invisalign Teen instead.

Cost of Invisalign for Teens
The price range of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on the complexity and dentist’s expertise. If additional time or a greater number of aligners for the treatment are required, the cost of Invisalign braces for teens rises correspondingly. Invisalign teen costs can also vary according to the fee charged by your orthodontist, which in turn, largely depends on the qualification. A high-profile orthodontist charges higher fees, since this specialist has both advanced skills and wider experience to provide first-rate treatment. Also, Invisalign for teens might imply some aftercare like retainers and this will be included into your treatment plan at Dr. Atoosa Nikaeen’s.
