Information For Parents

Welcome. Chances are good that you're here because your teen is interested in getting the Invisalign Teen™ system. We know it's an important decision and one for which you'll want the right information. This section is here to give you the facts you need to have a discussion with your teen and make up your mind.

What Is It?

New Invisalign Teen straightens your teen's teeth with a series of custom-made clear aligners, rather than using traditional metal bands, brackets, and wires, which are obvious and sometimes painful. The aligners are comfortable, practically invisible, and also removable. Invisalign Teen was developed with leading orthodontists. And it works – one million patients worldwide have made Invisalign their clear choice. It's also FDA-cleared.

What It Treats

By using its advanced technology, the Invisalign Teen system can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were usually treated with traditional braces:

  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

It's good to know that the Invisalign Teen system can treat all of those issues. Of course, you'll want to discuss your teen's specific orthodontic issues with Dr. Weledniger, a designated Invisalign Teen provider. Dr. Weledniger has been trained on Invisalign Teen tools and technology. To become designated, dentists and orthodontists have to demonstrate a certain level of experience working on actual teen cases.

Dr. Richard M. Welednger (Invisalign Teen provider)  will create a customized plan to ensure your teen gets a brand-new smile.


During Treatment

Invisalign Teen effectively straightens teeth.Developed with leading orthodontists and FDA-cleared, Invisalign Teen treats many kinds of malocclusion issues, which, in the past, were usually treated with traditional braces. So you know, malocclusion refers to misaligned teeth and/or an incorrect relation between the teeth of the upper and lower jaws.

It helps with your teen's positive self-esteem.Research indicates that 95% of all teens1 worry about getting wire braces. One of the reasons they worry is because of pain, but also because of their treatment being noticeable in photos. Because it's nearly invisible, Invisalign Teen helps teens feel confident because they aren't self-conscious about their treatment. They keep smiling. Most likely, the only way people will know about your teen's treatment is if he or she chooses to tell them. Also, Invisalign Teen is less likely to cause tooth-and-gum irritation.

It's hygienic. Your teen can take his or her aligners out in order to brush and floss regularly. That means they get to keep normal oral hygiene and its benefits. In contrast, it's usually hard to brush and floss all teeth and gums with traditional braces.

It's affordable. Invisalign Teen costs about the same as traditional and other clear braces, and is covered by most types of health insurance. Also, financing options are
often available.

It fits your teen's life. Invisalign Teen was designed with your teen in mind. It accommodates the growth of secondary molars, has a Blue Dot Wear Indicator, and offers up to six, free, individual replacement aligners. Plus there are all the lifestyle benefits.

Teens can still play sports as well as wind instruments, eat whatever they want, smile in photos, and brush and floss like they always did.

All of that while they're having their teeth straightened!

Cost Considerations

A Straight Healthy Smile is Priceless!

So is the confidence that comes with it. But the cost of getting your teen there is an important consideration that you'll want to make. Many factors can determine the cost of your teen's Invisalign Teen treatment:

  • The complexity of his or her orthodontic issues
  • How long his or her treatment will last
  • Specific treatment details prescribed by your designated Invisalign Teen provider


You should know the Invisalign Teen system costs about the same as traditional and other clear braces. Treatment costs vary from patient to patient. The true cost of your teen's treatment will be determined during your free Consulatation With Dr. Richard M. Weledniger.
