Why Invisalign is Perfect for College Students
Posted on 09/29/2021

Invisalign one of the biggest orthodontic appliances on the market. And it’s not only a great option for adults but teens and young adults as well! College students, especially, can take advantage of the benefits Invisalign provides. At Meister Orthodontics, Dr. Meister and her staff offer customized Invisalign treatment plans to anyone who is qualified. We know how busy students are in their daily lives; everything from homework, activities, and work makes it hard to juggle schedules. If you’re in college (or just about to start), here’s why Invisalign might be a great option for you.

How Invisalign Can Help College Students

We know traditional metal braces are not appealing for many teens and young adults, and there are many reasons why. Even though metal braces are not as aesthetically pleasing, Invisalign can be a better option for college students for other reasons. Here’s why:

  • No Bi-Monthly Orthodontist Visits- One main reason why students put off fixing their teeth is that they’re frequently traveling between school and home and can’t commit to in-office visits. Invisalign, on the other hand, offers flexibility for the changing schedules of students. Because you can switch the aligners on your own about every 2 weeks, you don’t have to visit the orthodontist as often. However, it is still recommended to see your orthodontist as much as they advise. We can evaluate your progress and send you back to school with a fresh series of aligners when you come back during vacation.
  • Removable for Activities and Social Events- Invisalign can be removed for parties and important social events. If you’ve got an important interview coming up for an internship or a job opportunity, you won’t have to worry about how your mouth looks. Or maybe you’re a student-athlete or musician that needs something removable for performances/games. Clear aligners are completely see-through, making them virtually invisible to the eye. With Invisalign, you can walk to class or go to a party, assured that you have no reason to try and hide your smile.
  • Can Eat Whatever They Want- With Invisalign braces, students can take out their aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss. With traditional braces, patients have specific dietary and hygiene concerns that lead to high levels of upkeep. College students who are on a busy schedule might struggle to keep up. Hard and sticky foods aren’t off-limits. You can enjoy a night out with friends without worrying about what you can eat.
  • Can Treat Numerous Problems- Invisalign is just as effective as regular braces! Invisalign is made to tackle diverse orthodontic problems ranging from mild to severe. Speak with your orthodontist to see what is the best option for you. Remember, everyone is different. That’s why Invisalign can be customizable to fit you.
