Invisalign for the Busy Teen

Invisalign is a convenient orthodontic treatment for busy teens who don’t want the hassle of dealing with traditional metal braces.


Removable Aligners

Invisalign’s removable aligners make them more convenient than metal braces for a number of reasons.

Firstly, brushing and flossing your teeth will be just as easy as it normally is. All you need to do is take the aligners out, brush and floss the way you usually do, and then pop them back in when you’re done.

While you do need to add extra brushing and flossing sessions in after meals, this is also true for metal braces. But traditional metal braces also require a great deal of extra cleaning during each of your brushing and flossing sessions.

You need to carefully floss around each brace and around the wires, and use special cleaning tools, such as Proxabrushes and oral irrigators, to get into all the little nooks and crannies created by the  metal braces.

With Invisalight there’s no need for any of that extra hassle! To clean your aligners, you can just wash them gently with a soft toothbrush and clear antibacterial soap, then rinse them off, and you’re done!

Eating with Invisalign is also much easier than it is with metal braces. Because you can take your Invisalign aligners out to eat, there are no food restrictions to worry about. In addition, food debris can easily get caught up in metal braces, requiring lots of time and care to pick out.

With Invisalign, all you have you have to do is brush and floss after each meal, rinse off your aligners, and put them back in.

In short, oral hygiene and maintenance are much less time consuming with invisalign than they are with metal braces. That means you can get back to your day in no time!

Fewer, Faster Appointments

Your aligners will be created at Invisalign headquarters and delivered to your provider's office ahead of each stage of your treatment process.

You’ll pick up several sets of aligners each time you visit for a check-up, which means you'll only need a short appointment about every 2-3 months.

The Invisalign treatment process is ideal for busy teens with lots of extracurricular and social engagements. Fewer orthodontic appointments mean less to worry about!
