If your teen is tired of living with crooked teeth, now is an excellent time to consider orthodontics. At Thomas J Stern DMD PC, we regularly answer questions about Invisalign Teen® as an alternative to braces for teens. This product is growing in popularity as more and more teens are transforming their smile without the use of bulky and noticeable braces. If you live in Philadelphia, PA or the area, we encourage you to call (267) 703-3233 and schedule an examination. We can let you know whether or not Invisalign® is the right solution for your child and how to get started.
Invisalign® straightens teeth using a series of clear, plastic aligners. For teeth to move from their current crooked position to where they are supposed to be, pressure must be applied. With braces, this is done using metal brackets with wires threaded between them. With Invisalign®, we apply pressure using a series of clear aligners that place specific amounts of pressure on specific teeth. When worn in a series, they put the right amount of pressure on the teeth to migrate the teeth to the correct position.
If you live in the Philadelphia area, call (267) 703-3233 to schedule a consultation with Thomas J Stern DMD PC.
