4 Reasons Teenagers Love Invisalign

invisalign teen richmond virginiaThere are several benefits to having the Invisalign straightening system as a teenager. While traditional braces have a youthful appearance, Invisalign allows patients to straighten teeth discreetly. Teenagers have many reasons to love the clear straightening system. Here are a few of the reasons Invisalign is so popular amongst our teenagers.

High School Sports

A teenager involved in school sports can easily remove their Invisalign clear aligners and replace with a mouth guard to protect their teeth at all times. In the event of trauma, patients with Invisalign are less likely to experience soft tissue damage due to various orthodontic appliances i.e. brackets. However, this choice doesn’t just protect your teen; it also protects other athletes on the field, rink, or court.

Dental Hygiene

Invisalign makes brushing and flossing a breeze. No threading or extra dexterity needed, just remove your Invisalign tray and resume normal dental hygiene routine. Making sure to clean your trays so clean trays go on clean teeth is an excellent way to keep teeth healthy during orthodontic treatment. Teens are more likely to perform good oral hygiene routines if it is easier and quicker to do.


Invisalign is a comfortable way to straighten your teeth. Not only are the trays smooth for ease of wear, they are designed specifically for your teeth creating a precision fit. Invisalign is made from BPA-free plastic that feels great and dramatically reduces soft tissue irritations.


Teenagers are often acutely aware of their appearance. Reducing the likelihood of food becoming trapped in wire braces is a huge plus for teenagers in social situations. Invisalign is discreet and can be removed during eating to ensure that no food particles are trapped and cause embarrassment. If your teen has a special event, you cannot beat the removability of Invisalign for maximum social enjoyment!
