Why Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign is clear, comfortable, convenient, and accommodating for every lifestyle.


Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and undetectable when they’re in place. This modern form of invisible braces is made of BPA-free, latex-free, high-quality, custom-made plastic. 

Whatever your teen’s day holds—school, work, professional events, hanging with friends—they can smile confidently throughout the day while their clear aligners straighten their smile in secret.


Invisalign aligners are specially designed for comfort. They’re made of SmartTrack® material, a plastic engineered exclusively for Invisalign. This material makes it easy to take the aligners out and place them back in throughout the day.

Your teen’s aligners will be custom-made to fit his or her smile perfectly, so they shouldn’t cause irritation around the cheeks or gums.


One of the major benefits of Invisalign—no food is off the table! Your teen’s clear aligners are removable, so he or she can take them out to eat food, drink beverages, brush their teeth and floss their teeth. 

After meals, your teen can rinse their aligners out with lukewarm water and place them back in their mouth to continue their treatment. Invisalign won’t require your teen to adjust their eating habits or their oral hygiene routine.

Conditions Treated with Invisalign Teen

With Invisalign Teen, Dr. Matsumoto can treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, from crooked teeth to complex bite misalignments.

We often use Invisalign attachments during the Invisalign process to increase the Invisalign effectiveness. Invisalign attachments are tiny, tooth-colored, bubble-like shapes bonded to individual teeth to reduce the amount of space between the tooth and the aligner and increase the aligner’s grip on a given tooth. This promotes quicker movement for teeth that require an extra nudge.

How can my teen get started?

At your teen’s first visit to our office, Dr. Matsumoto will examine their smile, taking x-rays and diagnostic photos, for free! We offer this comprehensive exam, because we want you to be comfortable trusting us with your teen’s treatment. 

If Dr. Matsumoto discovers that orthodontic treatment is necessary or would be beneficial for your teen, he may suggest Invisalign Teen or other treatment options he thinks are best for you. Your teen’s treatment plan will be 100% personalized to their condition, needs and preferences! 

Dr. Matsumoto and our team will guide you through the Invisalign process to ensure that your teen achieves the best possible results!
