Let your teens shine with the chance to remove their braces for photos. They’ll also feel more confident with Invisalign Teen aligners. That’s a fact.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
When necessary, cleaning is much easier than cleaning metal braces. Metal braces can be a pain when it comes time for brushing and flossing. Since all braces are temporary, many teens will choose to skimp on brushing or flossing. This is because maintenance is so difficult. Keep your kids’ mouths and braces cleaner and more hygienic with invisible aligners.
Less Painful than Other Braces
It’s not easy watching your teenagers deal with pain. Luckily, Invisible aligners are much less painful than metal braces. Since metal braces have large anchors on each tooth. These can dig into lips and cheeks, they can be sometimes painful if your teens aren’t careful.
The wires can break on metal braces and cut the cheeks and tongue, causing infection and a trip to the office.
No Dietary Restrictions
Most braces need a specific diet that restricts hard foods like ice, popcorn, and corn on the cob. Metal braces are also painful when tightened. This can prevent your teens from enjoying the foods they love.
Since you can remove them during meals, invisible aligners have no dietary restrictions. Your teens can continue to eat their favorite foods without worrying they’ll pop a wire or break an anchor.
A Beautiful and Healthy Smile
Why get braces in the first place? Most teens worry about their appearances. Cosmetic enhancement is one benefit of invisible aligners. They give your teen a better sense of self and a more confident smile.

Fewer Headaches and Oral Issues
Many teens opt for Invisalign Teen because they want straight teeth and a confident smile. They also might experience other issues that are a result of crooked teeth.

I love how you noted that there aren’t any dietary restrictions when you get Invisalign. This is something my teenaged son would love to know about since he has comfort eating as his favorite way to destress himself whenever he’s tired from studying, and this can help us solve his teeth issues without stopping that habit. I’ll look around for any dentists in the area that offer Invisalign right away so my son can get some.
I like that you discussed why Invisalign is more soothed by teenagers rather than going with traditional metal braces. Metal braces are painful, hard to install, non-detachable, and can only be maintained by your trusted orthodontist. While Invisalign is invisible and is not painful in the least. The other day, my nephew now in senior high school, he’s been struggling with his confidence levels because of his crooked teeth, he was asking me if I knew any other alternatives to braces as he does not want that. Thanks to this article, I will surely recommend Invisalign to his parents and ask them to consult a well-known orthodontist and get himself checked up for an Invisalign.
