Invisalign Clear Braces for Teens

Teenage years are a great time to focus on straightening teeth and developing a beautiful smile. Not only do teenagers have all their permanent teeth in place, but getting a smile to be proud of can make a huge difference in a teen’s life. Straight teeth can give a huge boost to the self-confidence that’s so important in a young person’s life—from meeting new people to first job interviews and more.

If your teenage loved one is interested in a straighter smile but isn’t looking forward to the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces, Invisalign invisible braces could be a great solution. Invisalign aligners are easy to use, effective, and subtle. All of these factors combine to make Invisalign braces a great fit for teenagers of all kinds!

Invisalign Aligners Work With Any Schedule

Whether your teenager has a relaxed schedule or a hectic one, Invisalign invisible braces can work for them. These invisible braces are so smooth and easy to use that it’s easy to forget they’re there at all!

These clear aligners are a great fit for teenage athletes, as they won’t have to worry about the aligners hurting their cheeks or lips during practice the way traditional braces might. Invisalign aligners are also such a close, precise fit that they won’t fall out mid-exercise.

Invisalign aligners are easy to remove and replace, which means your teenager won’t have to worry about limiting themselves to certain foods while they’re busy studying or working. Traditional braces can be difficult to floss or brush around, but Invisalign braces are quick and easy to clean, so you can expect even your busiest high schooler to take good care of their Invisalign aligners!

Invisalign Aligners Work Quickly

If your teenager doesn’t want to be wearing braces (even invisible braces) for long, they aren’t alone. Invisalign braces work well for people of all ages because the entire treatment takes only 12–18 months on average, and often even less!

So whether your teenager wants to have a straight smile by graduation, their first day on the job, or they just want the process to be over quickly, Invisalign treatment can get the job done.

While Invisalign braces work just as well and can get results even faster than traditional braces, those results do depend on the person wearing them. Your teen will be responsible for wearing their invisible braces as frequently as possible; try for around 22 hours a day.

Wearing Invisalign aligners is easy once it becomes part of your teenager’s routine—all it takes is remembering to put those clear aligners back in after eating, brushing, and flossing. If your teenager is willing to take this responsibility for their teeth, they will be even more satisfied with the straight smile at the end of their treatment!

Invisalign Invisible Braces are Discreet

Teenage years can be awkward, and while every teenager is different, not many young people are excited to smile with a mouth full of wires and brackets. If your teenager tends to feel self-conscious in a crowd, traditional braces that catch the light and make teeth stand out can make the problem worse.

Invisalign invisible braces live up to their name. Because Invisalign aligners are so clear, they will never be the first thing someone notices in a picture, and can give your teenager peace of mind if they’re worried about how they’ll look with standard metal braces.

With Invisalign braces, your teenager will be able to straighten their smile subtly. They won’t have to worry about the eye-catching metal of traditional braces, but they’ll have straighter teeth and a brighter smile to look forward to anyway!
