Your Teen Will Love Invisalign®
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign or Spark™ Clear Aligner System can be a great option if your teen is concerned about their appearance and doesn’t want to look different from their friends.
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Clear aligner therapy helps your teenager focus on doing what they do best—being a teen. Invisalign and Spark created systems to meets the special needs of teens all around Hamden & North Haven.
Clear aligners for Teens with Elm Tree Orthodontics can be a great clear option for teens shying away from traditional metal braces. These clear aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible.
Your teen's friends probably won’t even know they're wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal, they'll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day.
They probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples.
With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing your teen to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want.
This also means your teen can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces.
Whether your child plays sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold them back from enjoying the things they want to. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet.
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Hamden & North Haven because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments (than traditional metal braces) because you get your aligners from Dr. Desai in advance, and each visit requires less "chair time” in our Hamden & North Haven offices.
The typical Invisalign for Teens patient is seen by Dr. Desai once every 8 weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens in Hamden & North Haven
Dr. Desai uses Spark and Invisalign for Teens to straighten teeth the same way metal braces do. Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You also deserve efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
With the clear, comfortable technology of clear aligners from Elm Tree Orthodontics, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.

Talk to Us About Clear Aligners
It’s crucial to wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth according to Dr. Desai’s treatment plan. But, with Spark and Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Desai will recommend wearing a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
