In the past, if you wanted to straighten your teeth, you basically had just one option—metal braces. Most adults would simply skip out on treatment altogether because they didn’t want to face the world with a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. Fortunately, you no longer have to thanks to modern-day methods like Invisalign and Invisalign Teen orthodontics in Tyler, TX. With these treatments, Dr. Perez can straighten your teeth without altering your daily appearance in the process, ensuring that the only things people notice are your beautiful results. Want to learn more about your options with us? If so, give us a call today.
Invisalign uses a custom-made series of clear plastic aligner trays to straighten the teeth. Each one places a small amount of pressure that brings the teeth a step closer to their ideal positions. The trays are thin, lightweight, and see-through, so no one will be able to tell you’re wearing them. Even better, you can take Invisalign off whenever you want, meaning you don’t have to change your diet or brushing habits during treatment!
If your teenager balks at the idea of wearing metal braces, Teen Invisalign could be the ideal alternative that helps them stay confident and comfortable throughout the daily pressures of high school. It works just the same as traditional Invisalign, using a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth towards their ideal positioning. However, Teen Invisalign features a small dot on each aligner that will change colors over the course of their use. This helps our team monitor proper usage and also reminds your son or daughter when it’s time to switch aligners.
