I was thinking of getting my daughter Invisalign because I was so happy with mine. She’s 14. I know they have invisalign teen. Do they work the same?

I’m glad to know how much you enjoyed your Invisalign treatment. It has a very high patient satisfaction rate. Invisalign teen works very much like the adult version. There are two big differences.
The first is that unlike the adult version, Invisalign teen can work on studentst that have erupting or erupted permanent dentition. An orthodontist can tell you if she is a good candidate. The second big difference is extra aligners. Because invisalign realizes that teenagers aren’t always as responsible as adults. Because of that, they do offer a few extra aligners in case your darling misplaces one or two.
It is still very important that they wear the aligners for the prescribed amount of time. Otherwise the treatment won’t work. If you think she’ll cooperate with that, then Invisalign Teen is a great option.
