Why Invisalign Teen?
The Invisalign Teen has been developed in cooperation with adolescents, parents and leading orthodontists who understand the active lifestyle and the unique treatment needs of teenage patients.
Invisalign Teen aligners are manufactured using the same Invisalign technology used for Invisalign aligners and move teeth gradually, with no need of metal braces or wires.
