Back to School with Invisalign Teen

Back to School with Invisalign Teen
Posted on 12/01/2021

School is back in session and that means your teen needs to be on top of their orthodontic treatment, even while at school. If your child recently got Invisalign Teen, Choice Orthodontics has some tips and tricks to ensure their school year goes smoothly and their Invisalign treatment stays on track. Dr. Lauran Windhorst encourages you and your child to strictly follow our Invisalign Teen tips as they will make your orthodontic treatment more effective and efficient in the long term.

Make the Most of Your Invisalign Teen this School Year

Get the most out of your Invisalign in Northwest Missouri and focus on your schoolwork at the same time. Dr. Lauren Windhorst recommends practicing our back-to-school Invisalign Teen tips:


  • Make a Dental Care Kit: Put together a small bag of items that will help you through the day. Our orthodontist suggests packing a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, a small mirror, and your Invisalign case. That way, no matter what happens or what you eat, you’ll be prepared to have bright, shining teeth, even in the middle of the school day. Double-check that your dental care kit is in your backpack each morning and you’ll be worry-free!
  • Bring a water bottle: A water bottle is always a good idea while at school, but especially for orthodontic health and Invisalign Teen. Water can be a quick solution in class or the halls when you have something stuck in your teeth after lunch or snack.
  • Remember Your Invisalign Case: Make mealtimes a little easier by always bringing your Invisalign case to school. By using your case, you’ll have somewhere discreet to keep your Invisalign aligners as you eat, but you also won’t forget them at school or accidentally throw them away in the cafeteria trash (we have seen this too many times before!).
  • New mouthguard: If your child plays athletic sports, let’s set them up with a brand new, custom-fit mouthguard to protect their teeth throughout the school year and keep their orthodontic treatment on track.
