Clear Aligners Teen Makes Teenagers Smile!

Clear Aligners Teen: The Clear Choice for Today’s Youth

At Sonneveld Orthodontics, we appreciate the unique challenges and concerns that come with being a teenager. For our patients who are seeking a less conspicuous orthodontic option, we are thrilled to offer Clear Aligners Teen. This cutting-edge alternative to traditional braces lets adolescents straighten their teeth without metal wires and brackets, so they can smile confidently throughout their treatment.


Like Regular Clear Aligners,

Only Fine-Tuned Just For Teenagers

Clear Aligners Teen is tailored specifically for the adolescent lifestyle. It incorporates features that accommodate growing mouths, such as compliance indicators – the blue dots on the aligners that fade with wear, helping to monitor usage. Understanding that teens lead active lives, we provide up to six replacement aligners at no additional cost, just in case any go missing or are damaged. Additionally, aligners come with unique eruption tabs that preserve space for teeth that are still coming in, making Clear Aligners Teen a truly adaptive and flexible treatment option.

Only Fine-Tuned Just For Teenagers

No Foods are Off-Limits &

Oral Hygiene is Easy

One of the biggest advantages of Clear Aligners Teen is the freedom it offers. Since the aligners are removable, there are zero food restrictions. Whether it’s biting into an apple, enjoying corn on the cob, or savoring sticky candies, teens can relish their favorite treats without worry. Oral hygiene is also simplified – the aligners can be easily removed for thorough brushing and flossing, promoting healthy teeth and gums without the hassle of navigating around braces.

Special Events? No Problem!

Clear Aligners Teen is designed for minimal interference with a teen’s active social life. For pivotal moments – be it a prom photo, playing a wind instrument at a band concert, or speaking at a debate competition – the aligners can be temporarily removed, ensuring that nothing gets in the way of life’s big events. Despite this flexibility, we recommend wearing the aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment – even during sleep.

At Sonneveld Orthodontics, serving Orland Park, IL and the neighboring communities, our goal is to provide orthodontic solutions that fit seamlessly into the lives of our patients. Clear Aligners Teen is more than just a path to a beautiful smile; it’s a journey that doesn’t interrupt the joy of being a teenager. Discover the difference with Sonneveld Orthodontics – where every smile is a masterpiece in the making.

How Clear Aligners Teen Works

  • Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.
  • Wear the aligners at least 22 hours each day.
  • Remove the aligners only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • Visit your Orland Park orthodontist every 8 to 10 weeks.
  • Total treatment time averages between 6 and 15 months.
  • Average number of aligners is between 18 and 30.


As a Clear Aligners Teen patient, you can enjoy many benefits including:

  • The freedom to eat all your favorite foods
  • No problems brushing and flossing
  • Comfortable to wear with no poking or rubbing wires or brackets
  • More self-confidence knowing the aligners are virtually invisible
  • Fewer orthodontic appointments since there’s nothing to adjust

On top of these great benefits, you can also enjoy having fewer lifestyle disruptions with Clear Aligners Teen. For instance, your aligners won’t ever get in the way when you’re playing a musical instrument or hitting the field to score a goal. It’s all these things and more is what makes Clear Aligners Teen a very popular treatment option among adolescents!

Orthodontic Problems

Clear Aligners Teen Can Correct

While some orthodontic problems are best treated with regular braces, Clear Aligners Teen can correct many different types of problems with the teeth including:

  • Overbites and underbites
  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
What to Expect

What to Expect

The first step in finding out if Clear Aligners Teen is the right treatment option for you is to visit us so Dr. Sonneveld can examine your teeth to see if you have a problem that Clear Aligners Teen can treat. If you can be treated with clear aligners, we’ll take some photos of your teeth so we can create 3D images of them using our specialized computer software. Once that’s done, Dr. Sonneveld will carefully devise your treatment plan. He’ll then send all the information off to Align Technology, the makers of clear aligners to have your aligners made. Once your aligners arrive at our office, we’ll ask you to come in so you can start your treatment.
