At Queensway Orthodontics, we've all been teenagers, so we know how self-conscious it can be if you have to wear braces during your teenage years. That's why our team use Invisalign Teen for many of our young patients. This method is so discreet it is almost impossible to tell if you're wearing an appliance.
How does Invisalign Teen work?
Invisalign Teen treatment works much the same way as Invisalign does. Sets of custom-made aligners, created with 3D technology, sit over the top of your teeth, gently moving them into position. Because the aligners are removable they can be taken out to eat, brush and floss. This makes it easier for your teen to look after their teeth.
Fits your teeth and your lifestyle
At Queensway Orthodontics we understand teenagers are very active. That’s why we often recommend Invisalign Teen. The aligners can be removed during physical activities, like contact sports, and for other occasions, such as when playing musical instruments or attending a school prom. Your teen won’t miss out on anything.
Although Invisalign aligners have the benefit of being removed, it is still important for your teen to wear them 22 hours a day to get the best results. To remind your teen of this, the aligners include blue dot wear indicators which fade from blue to clear to help monitor how much they’re being worn.
Comfortable to wear
Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth plastic material which reduces the risk of irritation to the mouth. They also allow for the eruption of growing adult teeth.

Frequently asked questions
Will people be able to tell I’m having treatment? Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible so only those you tell will know you’re having treatment.
What happens if I lose my aligners? Invisalign is prepared for such an eventuality and provides six free sets of aligners as part of the treatment process.
Invisalign Teen is a private treatment and therefore not available on the NHS. To spread the cost we do offer interest-free finance plans that can be taken out over a 12-month period, or low-cost loans that can be taken out over 24, 36 or 48 months.
