The Top 10 Benefits of Invisalign Teen®

Teens everywhere are embracing Invisalign as a clear alternative for straightening teeth. The ability to remove your straightening system and eat your favorite foods, as well as continue your normal oral hygiene routine, is becoming very popular among adolescents. Gardner Orthodontics lists the the top 10 benefits of Invisalign Teen®, provided by Dr. Gardner, one of the 2017 Top 1% Providers for Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® nationwide!


Invisalign® boasts clear aligner trays to straighten teeth and give you the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve always wanted.


Invisalign® inspires confidence in patients and eliminates any awkward “yes-I’m-wearing-braces” smiles when socializing. Patients can smile confidently while still making great strides in their orthodontic treatment.


Invisalign® requires no metal, no brackets and no wires. With chances of an emergency  greatly reduced, teens and their parents should feel reassured.


This benefit surely makes moms and dads happy! Invisalign requires fewer office visits (one visit every 8 to 10 weeks, usually) to achieve that beautiful smile. Your appointments will be quick, as no adjustments are necessary — just new trays to acquire. Invisalign frees up time in everyone’s schedule and has proved highly effective without being “high-maintenance.”


Athletes and marching band members love Invisalign® because it is removable, allowing you to participate in your extracurricular activities free from concerns about injury or abrasions. Invisalign may also help protect teeth in the event a stray ball comes at your mouth.


Invisalign® is a fantastic option for stage performers. For those who are accustomed to being on stage and in front of an audience, Invisalign allows for discreet straightening of teeth while continuing your acting or speaking requirements.


Most orthodontic treatments require dietary restrictions to maintain the integrity of your appliance. For example, with traditional braces, you don’t want a bracket to come off if you bite into something sticky or hard. With Invisalign, you are free to eat and drink all foods and beverages! You will remove your aligners when you eat and place clean aligners back on clean teeth when you are done.


Invisalign® allows patients to be vigilant about their dental hygiene. It is as easy as ever to floss and clean your teeth after each meal. Teens are more likely to follow a dental hygiene routine if it is easy!   


In order to help teens stay compliant with their Invisalign treatment, the company frequently runs contests to keep teens on track. The ‘It Starts With A Smile’ contest is a great way to get teens more involved with their treatment while providing a monetary incentive, as winners of the contest can receive up to $5,000 worth of Invisalign treatment.


One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign = PICTURES! Homecoming, prom, selfies and senior pictures are a breeze with Invisalign. Teens are able to maintain the confidence of a beautiful smile without any self-consciousness.
