Invisalign Teen: The Clear Alternative to Braces

Dr. Ingrid Barillas, Dr. Rodolfo Sanchez, and the team at Dental Specialists of New York offer their patients who live in or work near Midtown Mahattan Invisalign Teen, a clear and removable orthodontic treatment meant just for their teenage patients. Invisalign Teen in Midtown Manhattan are aligner trays made of a clear, thermoplastic material that are custom made to fit over the teeth. They gently exert pressure on misaligned teeth to bring them into a more natural, functional, and attractive position. As a result, Invisalign Teen is the clear alternative to traditional braces.


Invisalign Teen doesn’t contain wires, brackets, and rubber bands. The clear plastic tray fits snugly over the teeth. Invisalign Teen lets teens keep their appearance intact while gently improving their smile.


Orthodontic patients can remove Invisalign Teen for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and cleaning the trays. They are discreet to wear and easy to remove when they need to be, such as when participating in sports or playing a musical instrument. Teens don’t need to be self-conscious about wearing Invisalign. Invisalign is practically invisible to the casual observer. Invisalign must be worn to be effective, however, and should be worn 23 hours per day to achieve the best results.

Easy to take care of

Invisalign Teen is easy to clean. This is done by brushing the trays with a toothbrush and toothpaste, as well as rinsing in denture cleanser to keep the tray clean and fresh. Because Invisalign Teen is removable, it can be kept clean even when the wearer is on the go. The Invisalign Teen wearer can brush his or her teeth regularly and the clear aligner at the same time.


Much like braces, Invisalign Teen straightens teeth to a more functional and attractive position. In addition, treatment with Invisalign typically takes the same amount of time as treatment with traditional braces. With conscientious application, the Invisalign Teen wearer can safely, gently, and almost invisibly correct important orthodontic issues with confidence and a minimum of effort.

For teenagers, the idea of having to undergo orthodontic treatment can be stressful. Treatment with Invisalign Teen in Midtown Manhattan helps the wearer take the best school or team photos, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Confirmations, birthday party candids, and close-up selfies without worrying about the appearance of their smiles.
