Invisalign® Teen — Clear Aligners for Teenagers

Transform your teen's smile with clear aligner technology. At Lund Orthodontics, we're proud to offer Invisalign Teen for children across Kirkland, Snohomish, and Lake Stevens!

What is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen offers a comfortable and virtually invisible way to attain a radiant smile. Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of removable, clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teen. 

Invisalign’s aligners are easily removable and can be taken out at a moment’s notice. Simply by wearing these aligners for 20-22 hours a day, your teen’s smile will gradually shift into a more confident and natural position.Once a week they should switch out their old aligners with a new set.

Invisalign Teen is different from conventional treatment because an orthodontist designs custom aligner sets that evolve as your teen’s teeth shift and erupt. Under the supervision of a trained orthodontist, Invisalign Teen can help your teen achieve a symmetrical smile. 

Lund Orthodontics is a proud Invisalign Diamond provider. We have helped people of all walks of life straighten their teeth without wires and brackets for years — you can trust in the professionals at Lund Ortho with your teen’s alignment.

How Do I Know If Invisalign Teen is Right for My Teen?

There are many great reasons to choose Invisalign for your teenager.  But before we recommend anything, we need to make sure Invisalign Teen will be an effective solution for your teen. That process starts with a free exam with one of our orthodontic specialists. During the free exam, we’ll ask your teen questions, discover the underlying causes of their smile’s shape, and get to know them a little better. 

Next, we’ll scan your teen’s teeth using a high-tech digital scanner. This scanner gives us a better understanding of your teen’s needs. Plus, we can do it digitally so you won’t have to worry about messy, goopy impressions. We can use this information in conjunction with the combined data from millions of successful Invisalign users to create a customized alignment plan for your teen. 

As soon as we’ve completed this step, we’ll start working on their first aligner set. Next time you see us, we will have their aligners ready for them!

If your teen’s bite has issues like distinctive jaw shapes or other conditions that Invisalign cannot address, we have plenty of affordable alternative options, including self-ligating and clear braces. These appliances offer a discreet way to achieve a brilliant smile with a comfort level similar to Invisalign Teen. No matter what option is right for you, we are confident that our team will deliver stellar results. 

The choice to improve your teen’s smile can change their life. Schedule a free appointment now to learn more.

The Perks of Boosting Smiles With Invisalign Teen

The years of middle school and high school are some of the most significant periods in your child’s life. Invisalign Teen helps your loved ones get more enjoyment out of their transition into adulthood.

There are many reasons why it’s important to care for your teen’s smile during these years. When teeth do not conform to a concise pattern, they are at a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease. This is because food particles and plaque can get stuck in the uneven surfaces of their bite.  But using Invisalign can make uneven areas more consistent, and therefore easier to clean. Teeth that are easier to maintain are less likely to develop cavities, and addressing inconsistencies will help save money in the long run.

Because Invisalign Teen’s clear aligners camouflage easily into their mouth, your teen won’t have to worry about their braces affecting their appearance during those treasured growing-up moments like senior portraits, prom, or graduation. They will be able to quickly remove their aligners for all of those important photo-ops, snapshots, and selfies.

But there are many additional benefits to Invisalign Teen:

Shorter Appointments

With Invisalign Teen, they won't need to schedule long adjustment appointments. Instead, they will come in for appointments every 12 weeks.

Easy Brushing and Maintenance

It's a snap for your teen to clean their teeth between appointments because the aligners can be removed from their mouth quickly. Replace your aligner with a new set about every seven days.

No Emergency Appointments

Invisalign Teen aligners don't use wires or brackets. So you won't need to worry about making emergency appointments for your teen.

Flexible Lifestyle

Because Invisalign doesn't use brackets or wire components, you can eat whatever you want without worrying about compromising your comfort.

We know giving your child a marvelous smile can’t solve all of the problems that come with being a teenager. But achieving a healthy and natural smile can put your child on the path to future success.

Why SmileDirectClub and Similar Mail-Order Companies Can’t Compete With Us

Many websites promise results with self-supervised alignments. Unfortunately, these services cannot provide the high level of attention you get from an orthodontist. 

While a patient does the work of wearing Invisalign, their orthodontist makes strategic adjustments to help get the best possible results. Without proper intervention, results for aligners are a mixed bag. Many people who choose mail-order aligners end up spending a lot of money on inadequate treatment. 

According to the Association of American Orthodontists, DIY services may permanently compromise the integrity of your bite. Aligners are designed to help shift teeth, but without proper supervision, you run the risk of having an asymmetrical smile. These issues can cause gum disease, altered bites, tooth loss, and other long-term complications. You are less likely to unlock the full potential of their smile without a licensed orthodontist overseeing your teen’s alignment. 

Many people turn to these services because they are interested in the cost-savings of DIY alignment. But these people almost always end up needing to seek out an orthodontist to help correct their inferior alignment. Instead of saving money, they end up paying for the same treatment twice. 

At Lund Orthodontics, you shouldn’t have to choose between giving your teen the gift of a lasting smile and saving money. That’s why we offer flexible options like zero percent interest and no down payments. And all of our work is guaranteed for life. You can rest assured our professionals will deliver the best possible alignment for you.
