School will be out soon, and that’s one of the reasons many parents choose to start their child’s orthodontic treatment this time of year.

It takes a little time to adjust to wearing metal braces, and being out of school makes that period much less stressful.

Invisalign is different because it’s a series of removable, clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. Still, wearing aligners or any type of oral appliance takes some getting used to, especially for younger patients.

That’s why we invite you to start your child’s treatment now so they can become comfortable with the process without the distractions of homework and other school-year stressors that tend to make orthodontics more challenging.

Watch this video to learn more! Once you get them started, you may be surprised to find out just how quickly your child adapts to the Invisalign system and how much more confidence they’ll have throughout the course of their treatment!
