About Invisalign® for Teenagers in Jersey City
At Heights Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and Invisalign for Teens helps Dr. Trulby do that.
Invisalign for Teens is an amazing option for teenagers around Jersey city, because it allows you to fix crooked teeth without anyone noticing.
Removable + Almost Invisible
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teenagers all around Jersey City
Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires and bands like traditional braces. At your first consultation, Dr. Trulby will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is a good fit for your unique smile.
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of sporting metal braces, Heights Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.
You probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign for Teens, the aligners are completely removable, so you can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you like.
This also means you can easily continue brushing and flossing without special tools, equipment or techniques. Try that with braces.
Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a speech-and-debater or something else, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges to pursuing your passions. It can be hard to perform at your best if you’re struggling to hit that note on the clarinet while getting used to the shape of your new braces, or if you’re distracted during a basketball game because you’re working overtime to avoid an accidental elbow-shot to your braces.
Invisalign for Teens helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. Trulby, you’ll find out how Invisalign can be a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Jersey City and surrounding areas because you won’t need to come in for emergency appointments to fix broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces overall because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less "chair time."
The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees Dr. Trulby once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Busy Teens
Invisalign for Teens efficiently and reliably straightens teeth in the same way metal braces do. Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens in Jersey City who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at prom 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 should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. Trulby’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.

Talk to Heights Orthodontics About Invisalign
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign at Heights Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for job interviews, playing a sport or instrument, and other special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Trulby will prescribe a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
Invisalign may not be recommended for more complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework; Dr. Trulby can advise you about what options are best for you.
