How it works

With personalized care from the doctor you choose and trust and digital tools to monitor their treatment at every step, we can ensure your child will be happy and confident with their Invisalign® journey from beginning to end.

4 steps towards your child’s new smile:


Complete a Smile Assessment for your child, to find out whether they may be eligible for treatment. After that, you can easily find the right Invisalign-trained specialist orthodontist using our 'Find an Invisalign® doctor' tool, and then arrange to meet them either face-to-face or via Invisalign® Virtual Appointment4 for initial consultation.


At your initial consultation, your Invisalign® trained specialist orthodontist can first help you visualize with the iTero scanning tool, showing 3D digital images of your child's teeth.5 Then, they will use ClinCheck® software to map the route to your child's smile from the very start. Your child can go from just imagining their straighter teeth to seeing them.


Your child's custom-made aligners will be delivered to their Invisalign doctor for their first fitting. They will then receive a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home every 1-2 weeks or so. You and your child will be able to monitor their progress with their doctor's specialist care via the My Invisalign™ app with Invisalign® Virtual Care.4 Your child will also continue to receive personalized doctor care with visits to their Invisalign® trained specialist orthodontist every 6-8 weeks, to check on progress and receive new aligners.


Your child's smile will be transformed, and now it's easier than ever to maintain. Unlike most other devices, Vivera™ retainers are trimmed based on each patient's gum line to provide optimal comfort and aesthetics.

Eat with freedom

Invisalign® clear aligners are completely removable, so there's no need for your child to skip their favourite foods. They can easily maintain good oral hygiene by cleaning their teeth as normal. Concerns that your child might lose their aligners? Do not worry. If that's the case, the doctor will make sure to send a new set of aligners.

Metal braces vs. clear aligners for children and teenagers

Today, there are many different teeth straightening options for children and teenagers, with traditional metal braces for teenagers being the best-known method.

While metal braces are effective at causing minor to severe dental misalignment, they can cause discomfort as the wires could break and cause injury either spontaneously or due to injury from sports. Metal braces are also extremely noticeable against the white of a child’s teeth.

The comparison table below can help you make the right decision for your child’s unique smile. See how Invisalign treatment benefits for your child /teenager compare with metal braces and other clear aligners.
