Teen Invisalign Invisible Braces May Be The Best Option for College Students


For college students, juggling classes, social life, and everything else that comes with life can be overwhelming and take a lot of time. With Teen Invisalign invisible braces, college students can achieve their dream smile with ease. Traditional braces take a lot of visits and may not be practical for a busy or ever-changing lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are flexible, require fewer checkups, and can still get you your dream smile, without the look and hassle of traditional wire braces.

Let’s take a look at three of the main benefits of Teen Invisalign during college.

1. They’re Removable!

Whether you’re a student athlete, a music major, or just want to have a more confident smile, Teen Invisalign aligners are a great option because they’re removable – something traditional braces can never be. Remove the worry of embarrassment or activity with removable Invisalign aligners. No more worrying about how your braces look, if you can play sports, or if you can play your instrument.

They can be temporarily removed for activities or important social events. College student, Alaina Leary, shared her story of getting regular metal braces in college with Seventeen magazine — fortunately with the humor that comes with hindsight. “I had braces for five years, including all four years of college,” Leary writes. “Every time I smiled at a frat party, I felt like a high school kid from the neighborhood who’d snuck in.”

2. Faster and Easier Process!

As we already mentioned, Invisalign aligners don’t take up much of your time. This is a huge factor for many college students, who don’t have time to add extra appointments in their schedules. Maybe you’ve put off straightening your teeth with your busy schedule. With Invisalign, you can switch out aligners in the comfort of your own home. So, there’s no visiting the orthodontist every two weeks to get things tightened and tweaked. You’ll just check in with your dentist every once in a while to see if your aligners are working, and if you’re wearing them as much as you should.

Invisalign also often provides quicker results. This means you’ll wear your aligners less than you’d have on braces – with the same straight smile results. Many adults have to wear traditional braces for at least two years, and if you’re in college and looking to do job interviews, this may be frustrating. Most often, Invisalign works faster and it’s almost completely unnoticeable.

Invisalign aligners can also treat a wide variety of smile problems or correct any issues that came about after wearing traditional braces. “They’ve made some big advances in their technology, and Invisalign can now correct all sorts of issues, like overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, open bite, crossbite, overbite (that was me!) and underbite,” Gabrielle Blair writes as the Design Mom.

3. Eating with Ease!

Traditional braces require certain dietary and hygiene concerns. You can’t eat popcorn or gum, etc. With Invisalign aligners, this stress and concern goes away. You can simply take out your aligners to eat, brush, floss, and drink! Make sure to always keep your teeth clean and healthy with an oral hygiene routine. It’s recommended that you brush your teeth after every meal to keep your aligners nice and clean.
