If you are planning braces for your child, summer is the perfect time to get her started. Though she may not appreciate the fact that she won’t miss class time, it will mean less stress for you. There’s no back and forth checking her in and out of school, no wondering if she remembered to pick up the work that she missed. I know, you’re imagining the cascade effect of a missed assignment, a lower grade, not getting into an elite college, and suddenly that Nobel Prize is out of reach.
Braces aren’t just for kids and teens anymore. We are seeing more adults wanting to correct their teeth as they get older, but they don’t want the traditional metal braces. And that’s perfectly OK because with Invisalign, the metal is gone and you have clear braces and removable aligners. And, Invisalign CAN be used by teenagers as well!
