Trust us when we say Dr. Vickie Greenberg knows image is everything. And in an age and culture when image is so important, the thought of having metal brackets and wires constantly attached to their pearly whites 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 Vickie Greenberg Orthodontics 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, “Hey Dr. Greenberg, how does Invisalign teen work?”
Well, actually, 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 big benefit for our patients!
The treatment period for Invisalign Teen varies from nine to 18 months. To learn more about these clear aligners, please contact us at (626) 798-7645 and we’ll answer any questions you may have about Invisalign Teen!
