Why Invisalign Aligners for Teens?

Invisalign treatment is a popular option for teens, offering a mix of reliability and comfort. Here’s a closer look at why Invisalign treatment for teens is so popular:

  1. Stealth Mode: Invisalign clear aligners are almost invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing, unlike the metal brackets and wires you’ll have with braces.
  2. Comfy and Cozy: Invisalign aligners are more comfortable for some.
  3. Easy to Wear: Invisalign aligners can be taken out easily, so eating, brushing, and flossing is a breeze. Plus, you may be able to remove them for special events or sports games. Always follow your orthodontist’s advice, however, to get the best results possible.
  4. Know the Drill: Thanks to our 3D imaging tech, you can check out your treatment plan from start to finish before we even start. You’ll know exactly what’s happening and how your smile will evolve.

Invisalign treatment for teens combines high-tech orthodontics with a look and convenience that fits right into some teens’ busy lifestyles.

Invisalign for Teens FAQs

How long will I have to wear my Invisalign aligners each day?

This varies according to your treatment plan. Generally, you should wear your aligners at least 22 hours per day, only removing them to eat, drink, and perform your usual oral hygiene routine.

Can I eat and drink with Invisalign aligners?

Yes, one of the biggest perks of Invisalign aligners is that they are removable. When it’s time to eat or drink (except water), just take out your aligners and enjoy your meal or beverage. Remember to brush your teeth before putting the aligners back in to keep them clean and clear. Bon appétit!

What if I lose an aligner?

Don’t worry if an aligner goes missing; it happens sometimes! If you lose an aligner, contact us right away, and we’ll guide you on what to do next. You can usually move to your next set of aligners or temporarily go back to your previous set. Losing an aligner is just a small hiccup on the way to your awesome new smile!

Can I play sports or musical instruments with Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are all about flexibility. If you’re playing a contact sport, you can remove them just like a retainer, or even wear a mouthguard over them. As for musical instruments, you may need a short adjustment period, but it’s totally doable. So, rock on and score those points—Invisalign treatment won’t slow you down!
