Can Invisalign Treatment Work for Children & Teens?

The easy oral hygiene maintenance with Invisalign makes it a great treatment option for children and teens.

Because there are different bite issues common among teenagers, Invisalign treatment for teens is sometimes more complex than it is with adults. However, Invisalign treatment for teens can still be very effective.

Each approach is customized to the patient as each teen’s bite issue is unique. We’ll design a treatment plan using 3D computer technology that allows you to see the projected outcome of the treatment even before it begins.


Plus, most Invisalign patients complete their treatment sooner than traditional braces — in as few as 12 months compared to 24! Your teen can get the same results as traditional braces, but in less time and with less fuss!

Braces treatment can impact different teens in different ways. For example, some enjoy their “tin grin” look, especially when they’re able to pick out their favorite color of ties. Others’ self-confidence can suffer under the weight of that 2-year commitment.

For the latter group, Invisalign treatment can be ideal because they know their teeth are growing straighter every day, without the fear of flashing a smile full of braces. Finally, Invisalign treatment means shorter visits to our offices because there are no wires to adjust or brackets to maintain.

Invisalign for Adults in Wisconsin

The flexibility to remove your aligners while you eat, brush, or during special occasions makes it a top choice for adults.

Invisalign is very well suited for the active lifestyles of most adults today. Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable and easy to use because they fit perfectly over teeth, so you only need to remove them when eating and for your regular oral hygiene. Additionally, if you have a special occasion to attend, you can remove your aligners for a short time and still keep treatment on track.

You’ll enjoy more freedom in your diet choices than with traditional braces, too. What’s more, Invisalign treatment is about the same price as regular braces, and we can work with you and your insurance to come up with a payment plan that suits your budget.

Invisalign FAQs

How do I clean Invisalign aligners?

  1. Always rinse your aligners as soon as they are removed from your mouth. We recommend that you soak your aligner trays with the Invisalign brand crystal cleaning solution every day. This solution removes the bacteria from the aligners.
  2. Use a soft bristle toothbrush (not your daily toothbrush) to lightly sweep away any debris that remains after the soak.
  3. After soaking, rinse off the aligners and place back in your mouth.

How long do I wear each set of aligners?

Generally, you should wear your aligners for two weeks before changing to the next set, but because this varies by smile, you should follow our guidance. In some cases, for example, you might wear an aligner set for as little as a week before switching. This will depend on your specific treatment plan, so if you’re unsure about what we advised, be sure to ask your orthodontist.

Does Invisalign fit an active lifestyle?

Invisalign treatment is a great choice for an active lifestyle! Your aligners can be worn during nearly any activity, removing them only for eating and cleaning. Invisalign aligners can be worn comfortably while playing sports. For contact sports, remove the aligner and wear a mouthguard recommended by your orthodontist. Invisalign aligners can also be removed for special occasions if you prefer to do so.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment is a popular choice because of many benefits:

  • Clear aligners have a more aesthetic appearance
  • Comfortable, as it is custom-made to fit your bite
  • Affordable (about the same price as traditional metal braces)
  • Faster treatment
  • Less time spent at the orthodontist
  • Fewer food restrictions
  • Oral hygiene is much easier than with braces

How much time should I plan to spend at the orthodontist with Invisalign?

With Invisalign treatment, you will need to schedule visits every 4 to 6 weeks for a quick check-up. These appointments are quite fast and easy, as there is no need to adjust brackets or wires. Still, if it’s more convenient, we also offer remote care convenience  via the Smile Doctors Anywhere App.

How much does Invisalign treatment cost in Wisconsin?

We get this question a lot, and as members of families with budgets to manage, we fully understand it! However, it just wouldn’t be accurate to give you an exact Invisalign treatment cost before we’re able to go through the initial exam process. Each smile is unique, so each treatment plan is, too. What we can say is that we make Invisalign treatment as budget friendly as possible: 

  • Invisalign treatment cost is roughly equivalent to braces treatment depending on the patient. 
  • We accept most insurance plans and can help optimize your benefits to minimize out-of-pocket expenses. 
  • Flexible payment plans   can make any treatment affordable! 

Bottom line: we invite you to come in and talk about your smile goals so we can work together to meet them! Contact us at our orthodontic clinic in Wausau or Antigo, Wisconsin to learn more.
