The Benefits of Clear Braces for Teens Who Struggled with Invisalign

December 13, 2019

Filed under: Uncategorized — Shirck Orthodontics @ 1:21 pm

teen with clear braces When your teen got Invisalign, you were thrilled…initially. The idea of your child being able to straighten their teeth without having to deal with the appearance of metal braces sounded like a win-win for everyone, but unfortunately, things didn’t turn out as planned. Your teen, like many others, didn’t actually follow through and wear their aligners, so as a result, they still have some misalignment in their teeth. So, what should you do now?

This treatment combines the best parts of Invisalign and braces to deliver fantastic results and a smooth experience for both parent and child. (more…)

This can lead to a much smoother experience for the child, the parent, and it can make treatment much shorter and less complicated overall. How so? Read on to learn why waiting is not always the best approach when it comes to orthodontics.   (more…)
