Why Do Teens Prefer Clear Aligners

Posted on 12/15/2023 by Weo Admin

Clear aligners are the most preferred choice for the teens due to the following reasons:

Aesthetic Appeal

Clear aligners are designed to be virtually invisible, which makes them less noticeable compared to traditional braces. Most teens value their appearance and may feel quite confident without having visible wires and metal brackets. Ideally, the clear aligners help to align the teeth without having any significant impact on your appearance.


Another feature that makes the clear aligners outstanding is their removability aspect. Teens can freely take them out when brushing, drinking, or flossing. This aspect makes it easy to maintain oral hygiene and enjoy foods without significant restrictions.

Few Dietary Restrictions

Clear aligners are removable, which means that teens can continue to enjoy their favorite foods without worrying about damaging the orthodontic appliances. In contrast, for traditional braces, there are a few foods that you must avoid, such as sticky foods, hard candies, or popcorn.


The clear aligners do not have poking wires and metal brackets, which can irritate your lips and cheeks. This makes them a good choice for teenagers who are in active sports since they cannot cause significant discomfort or injury. It is also possible to remove the aligners during contact sports, making them quite convenient.

Easier Maintenance

Clear aligners are also easier to clean when compared to traditional braces. Teens can easily remove them when brushing and flossing their teeth. This helps to reduce the risk of various oral hygiene issues and cavities. Also, it is possible to adequately clean the clear aligners once you remove them, which makes them safe for your oral health and can also remain in good shape for many months.
