Why Invisalign Is Perfect For High School & College Students

Back-to-school season is already well underway. Students are reconnecting with their friends and starting to hit the books after a long summer vacation. Many of our patients in high school and college have expressed to us that they would like to improve their smile, but they’re apprehensive about having braces. High school students are self-conscious about how they might look; college students don’t have the time to juggle classes and monthly appointments. In these cases, our team cannot recommend our Toronto Invisalign treatments enough. Here are some reasons that Invisalign is perfect for our patients in high school and college:

1. They’re Invisible

With the social nature of high school and college, many students are wary of the idea of getting braces because of the effect it may have on their appearance and their social lives. The Invisalign System eliminates this concern by replacing metal brackets and wires with clear aligners. These clear aligners are completely see-through, making them virtually invisible to anyone aside from the person wearing them. With Invisalign, you can walk to class or go to your first college party rest assured that you have no reason to try and hide your smile.

2. They’re Removable

Invisalign clear aligners are removable and meant to be taken out to eat, drink, brush and floss. This means that patients using Invisalign or Invisalign Teen don’t have the same dietary restrictions or dental hygiene concerns as patients with conventional braces. And if there’s a prom or formal where you don’t want to worry about keeping track of the aligners, you can choose to leave them at home for a few hours and put them right back in when you get back.

3. They Keep You On Schedule

We know that high school students have a lot going on, and sometimes they can be a bit forgetful. Invisalign Teen clear aligners make sure that one thing you’ll never forget is when to change your aligners. Made specifically for teenagers, Invisalign Teen aligners are all equipped with a Blue Dot wear indicator, which will remind you when it’s time to switch onto the next aligner set.

4. No Doctor’s Appointment Required

Invisalign has the huge added benefit of being able to adjust your teeth without needing to see an orthodontist. For college students, this means that there’s no need to manage monthly adjustment appointments in different states. You can switch aligners from the comfort of their dorm rooms every two weeks. Whenever you come home for vacation, we’ll evaluate your progress and send you back to school with a fresh series of aligners that will continue to adjust your teeth until you come home again.
