>Image is everything, especially for teenagers. And in an age (and culture) when image is so important, the thought of having metal brackets and wires constantly attached to teeth may intensify the already-delicate confidence of today’s teens. But… not to worry! There is a clear alternative to traditional braces! Our team at the office of Dr. John A. Gerling thought we’d remind you that Invisalign Teen™ gives our teens a whole new way to wear braces for a “clearly” amazing smile!
You’re probably wondering, “OK, Dr. Gerling, how does Invisalign teen work?”
Well, much in the same fashion as Invisalign, but with a few added characteristics tailored specifically to teenagers’ lifestyles. For example, 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 broken or lost – another big benefit for Dr. Gerling’s patients!
The treatment period for Invisalign Teen varies from nine to 18 months. To learn more about these clear aligners, please contact us at (956) 687-2004 and we’ll answer any questions you may have about Invisalign Teen!
We hope you’re enjoying your Memorial Day weekend!
