Invisalign for Teens can Straighten Teeth Without Anyone Noticing
Teenagers are less prone than adults to forget about their orthodontic aligner sets because they care more about how they appear and how they feel about their smiles.
Invisalign Teen is a ground-breaking new method of teeth straightening that employs clear plastic trays packed with removable aligners rather than metal wires. The translucent trays allow teenagers to maintain their style while improving their smiles.
At Maylands Dental Centre, we offer Invisalign Teen to patients from the age of 18 who have mild-to-moderate crowding or spacing concerns affecting at least one tooth on each side of the upper or lower teeth. Our skilled Perth dentists are committed to providing you with the most comprehensive but affordable Invisalign treatment solutions possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are several compelling reasons why adolescence is ideal for orthodontic treatment, while earlier intervention may be necessary in some cases. One has to do with tooth development: There is no specific schedule for each child, but by the time they reach the age of 11–13, all deciduous (baby) teeth have been lost, and the permanent ones have mainly erupted. This is the moment to address the issues contributing to a bad bite (malocclusion), improper tooth spacing, or inadequate alignment.
Orthodontic problems do not get better as you age; they merely get more challenging to cure. Many orthodontic disorders are easier to address throughout adolescence since the body is still developing at this age. A professional dentist can achieve excellent function and appearance quickly by utilizing metal braces or appliances such as palatal expanders. However, many disorders become more difficult (and expensive) to address when the face and jawbones are fully grown in later years.
Invisalign Teen has been developed with teenagers, parents, and leading orthodontists who understand teenage patients’ active lifestyles and unique orthodontic treatment needs. The Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same Invisalign technology used for Invisalign aligners, moving teeth gradually without the need for metal or wires.
Teenagers can choose from various Invisalign comprehensive treatment options based on their tooth development stage. Some teenagers may be candidates for the same Invisalign treatment as adults. In addition, teenagers younger than 18 years old or whose adult teeth have not yet erupted can be treated with Invisalign Teen, a procedure specifically intended for teenagers. Furthermore, your Invisalign provider will identify the treatment option that is most appropriate for your unique needs and dental condition.
Since the oral trays do not increase the risk of injury, athletic teenagers are eligible candidates for Invisalign. Young people who use Invisalign trays can also benefit from not worrying about the appearance of traditional metal braces when giving speeches or going on job interviews. This can make a significant difference in a teenager’s life, which is why many parents choose this approach to teeth alignment.
Invisalign includes a compliance indicator that clearly shows whether or not the teenager is wearing the aligner tray for the appropriate amount of time each day, allowing parents to monitor the trays’ use. Aligners are best suited for responsible adolescent patients who are driven to wear the aligner trays because they want straighter teeth. Parents should ideally check in with their teens frequently to ensure that the compliance indicator shows proper use of the aligner trays.
Furthermore, Invisalign is also particularly well-suited to teenagers with primary alignment concerns, but each case is different. As a result, the only way to truly determine whether your teenager is a good candidate for this type of treatment is to schedule an orthodontic evaluation. Make an appointment at Maylands Dental Centre now to find out if your teen is a suitable candidate for this procedure.
