For Teens

Invisalign for Teens

Invisalign is for teens who want to continue living life the way they want, while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

With Invisalign Teen, your teen can still do all of their favorite things – without interruption. 

Dr. Senties offers Invisalign for teens San Antonio who want to transform their smile with confidence.

Why Invisalign for Teens?

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 his or her 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.

How do I know if my teen is a candidate for Invisalign?

If you aren’t sure whether Invisalign is right for your teen, we encourage you to request a complimentary consultation with us. Dr. Senties will examine your teen’s smile, take x-rays and diagnostic photos, and discuss you and your teen’s goals and concerns.

Invisalign for teens, Dr. Senties 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 much does Invisalign for teens cost?

The cost of Invisalign in San Antonio is affordable with Senties Family Orthodontics! We do everything we can to make your teen’s new smile affordable for you.

We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment. See our financing options for the cost of Invisalign!

How does Invisalign for teens work?

Using iTero scanning technology, Dr. Senties will make quick, precise 3-D impressions of your child’s teeth to begin the Invisalign process. These impressions will be used to create their custom treatment plan with Invisalign for teens.

Your teen will receive a set of custom aligners: one for their top teeth and one for their bottom teeth. Every 1 to 2 weeks, your teen will switch out his or her current set of aligners to wear a new set, and every 10 to 12 weeks, you’ll visit our office to receive new sets of aligners.

Each set of Invisalign Teen aligners is custom-made to shift teeth closer to the ideal alignment. Your teen will wear aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.

With every new set of aligners, your teen is one step closer to a beautiful, healthy smile!

How long does Invisalign take?

The average case with Invisalign will take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to complete. To experience the most effective and efficient treatment period, you must wear your aligners as instructed (for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.) If you don’t wear your Invisalign aligners as frequently as your orthodontist instructs, your treatment period will be longer!

How can my teen get started?

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

If Dr. Senties 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 his or her condition, needs and preferences! 

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