Our team at King Orthodontics knows how important image can be for today’s teens. Even the thought of having metal brackets and wires constantly attached to teeth may intensify the already-delicate confidence of many Wexford and Pittsburgh, PA teens. But… not to worry! There is now a clear alternative to traditional braces! The team at King Orthodontics thought we’d remind you that Invisalign Teen™ gives you a whole new way to wear braces for a “clearly” beautiful smile!
So how does Invisalign Teen work, you ask? Much in the same fashion as Invisalign, but with a few added characteristics tailored specifically to teenagers’ lifestyles. For instance, Invisalign Teen is designed with “compliance indicators” that fade from dark to light during the two week period that particular tray is used and once it has faded teens know to change trays. Each aligner comes with up to six free individual replacement aligners in case the original aligner ends up lost or broken. Another huge benefit for the patient!
The treatment period for Invisalign Teen varies from nine to 18 months. If your teen is considering orthodontic treatment, please contact us and we’ll answer any questions you may have about Invisalign Teen. We are also happy to send you a free information kit from Invisalign or schedule you a free consultation. Just give us a call!
