Since it’s introduction in 1999, Invisalign has been providing a clear alternative to metal braces that uses a series of virtually invisable aligners that gradually move teeth over time. Recently they celebrated reaching a new milestone, 2 Million Invisalign Smiles.
Invisalign’s popularity has grown among young adults and teens because of the ease in which the treatment is achived and the nearly invisible appliances. Approximately 260,000 teenagers between 11-19 years old have been treated with Invisalign since Invisalign Teen was introduced in 2008.
I’m glad that my son Nick is one of those teens. His treatment has been one of the smoothest procedures I could ever have imagined. His case is quite complicated and at first we were a little skeptical that he would have the success that he has. He is well past the half way point of his course of treatments and the difference in his smile and confidence in public is amazing. If possible no teen should straighten their teeth in any other manner.
Adults and teens now have a modern choice for straightening their teeth. No more wires and brackets required – Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces that uses a series of virtually invisible and removable aligners that gradually move teeth over time. The benefits include no food restrictions, ability to easily maintain healthy dental brushing habits, minimal interference with sports or other activities, and teeth get straightened without most people knowing you are in treatment.
