Why Do Teenagers Love Invisalign?

Over the past few years, we have seen a rise in the number of teenagers who come through our doors looking for one thing: options.

While braces of years past have typically come in the standard, traditional metal braces, there are more options for today’s modern teen, including clear braces and Invisalign. Invisalign has been gaining in popularity over the past few years and attracts teenagers for many reasons, but mainly because their lifestyle isn’t interrupted!

As a Premier Preferred Provider for Invisalign, Dr. French and Dr. Olsen at Authentic Orthodontics can help teens determine if Invisalign is the right choice for their smile. We can weigh the options, find out what would be the most effective treatment, and make a final decision together.

Here are a few reasons why teenagers love Invisalign:

Almost Invisible

Most teenagers want Invisalign for this main perk. You can hardly see the aligners, which makes treatment almost unnoticed.

The clear aligners are made of a clear plastic material called SmartTrack. The aligners are given in a series and will slowly straighten teeth over time. The aligners, unlike braces that require brackets and wires, are created in different shapes to guide teeth to a straighter position in the mouth. With brackets and wires out of the way, people will just notice how straight your smile is becoming!


While Invisalign aligners are clear, there are still some reasons why teens would need to remove the appliances. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can be removed for eating, cleaning, sports, and special occasions. How great is that? If you wear a mouthguard for sports it’s ideal!

Although the aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours per day, they can be removed as needed. For instance, people with traditional metal braces have a list of foods that are prohibited while wearing braces; this is not the case for Invisalign! Teens do not need to alter their diet to avoid chewy, hard, or crunchy foods. Instead, they can simply remove the aligner to eat whatever they would like.

Also, we understand that teens lead busy lives. If there is an important game, dance, date, or picture day, teens can remove their Invisalign to show off their great smile.

Easy Care and Cleaning

As mentioned above, since Invisalign is removable, cleaning your teeth is a breeze. Instead of working around brackets and wires, teens can just remove their aligners and brush and floss as they normally would.

Additionally, Invisalign Teen understands that taking out the aligners can sometimes lead to losing aligners. That’s why Invisalign Teen will give a free replacement tray in case one goes missing!

Real Results

Whether your teen’s case is simple or more complex, Invisalign Teen may be a great choice. Millions of teenagers have already found great success with Invisalign, and love that they do not have to change their life, diet, or schedule to get a better smile.
