At my orthodontic practice, offering clear aligners is an important treatment option for patients, especially teenagers. When indicated by a trained orthodontist, Invisalign, the leading clear aligner brand, can provide teens with the beautiful straight teeth they’ve always wanted — without braces.

A consultation with an orthodontist is the only way to know for sure whether it’s the appropriate treatment option, but understanding the benefits of Invisalign can help you make a decision as to whether it could be the right fit for your teen:

  1. They’re Completely Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No closed-lipped selfies here! If your teen is self-conscious about his or her appearance in photos, Invisalign could be the right choice. 
  2. They’re a Confidence Booster: A recent study found that teens wearing Invisalign are twice as likely to experience a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens treated with metal braces.  
  3. They’re Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing your teen to eat and drink whatever they’d like while in treatment- and play certain sports more easily.

And here’s a benefit for parents: With Invisalign there won’t be any brackets to become loose or broken, so there are potentially fewer emergency visits to the orthodontist, and fewer interruptions to your busy schedule!
