SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The teenage years can often be a challenging time for both teenagers and their parents; everything is changing both physically and emotionally in a very short period of time. Research shows that an overwhelming majority, 96 percent of U.S. teens, report they are not satisfied with their smile and are insecure about their appearance.* Well… there's a solution… Invisalign Teen clear aligners can help. The good news is for the first time ever, Invisalign Teen clear aligners come with a satisfaction guarantee for teens and their parents. The Invisalign Teen Guarantee gives parents the confidence to choose Invisalign Teen clear aligners for their teens knowing that if they are not satisfied within the first six months of treatment, a participating doctor will switch their teen into traditional wires and brackets at no additional cost.
The Invisalign Teen Guarantee is a "win-win" for parents and teens. The program gives parents the confidence that their child will achieve their teeth-straightening goals, and gives teens the teeth straightening option they really want. Currently the Invisalign Teen Guarantee is being offered through participating Invisalign providers in Boston, Denver, Houston and Minneapolis.
"The Invisalign Teen Guarantee signifies the company's commitment to stand behind the efficacy, convenience and benefits of Invisalign treatment while also supporting mom and teens through what can be a challenging time," said Todd Doucette, Vice President of Marketing at Align Technology, Inc. "We hope that this option gives parents the comfort that if they are not satisfied, they can make a change, and ultimately be more confident in having their children experience the difference clear aligner therapy can provide."
How The Invisalign Teen Guarantee Program works:
- The Invisalign Teen Guarantee is available for Invisalign Teen patients starting treatment between September 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017.
- The Invisalign Teen Guarantee is currently offered by participating orthodontists in Denver, Houston, Boston and Minneapolis.
- If for any reason, a parent or teen is not happy with Invisalign Teen treatment within the first six months of treatment, the guarantee is redeemable through a participating orthodontist who will switch the teen to wire and brackets at no charge.

"I am pleased to see there is a satisfaction guarantee that backs the treatment with Invisalign Teen clear aligners and look forward to more parents being open to trying Invisalign Teen treatment," said Dr. Trudy Bonvino, Cosmopolitan Orthodontics, Minneapolis, MN. "Invisalign treatment can treat a wide range of cases from simple to complex and has offered my teen patients an unparalleled experience for many years; I wholeheartedly recommend Invisalign treatment to give teens the confidence and satisfaction they need while straightening their teeth."
Invisalign Teen treatment is just as effective as traditional braces and costs about the same, but with the added benefits of being virtually invisible and removable so a teen's confidence and lifestyle is not compromised during treatment. With Invisalign Teen clear aligners, teens don't experience the negative impacts of treatment in the same way that teens in traditional braces do. The average treatment time is about the same as with traditional braces, but the actual length of treatment depends on the severity of their condition and can only be determined by an orthodontist.
