Many parents choose to start their child’s orthodontic treatment over the summer because it can take some time for kids to adjust to life with braces.

Not only will they experience a bit of soreness in the first few days after the brackets and wires are placed, but they’ll also need to change the way they floss and even what they eat.

But with Invisalign, your teen can hit the ground running with no disruptions to their normal diet or routines. The aligners can be removed for easy brushing, flossing, and eating, but the best part is that they’re nearly invisible, so your child can begin a new school year without worrying that their classmates will notice their orthodontic treatment!

Just how long will it take for Invisalign to deliver results? It’s different for every patient, but you can check out today’s video from the Dental Health Society about the average treatment time for this innovative system.
