Can Invisalign® Benefit Teens?

Though many kids in high school can benefit from straighter teeth and a better bite, the thought of getting braces is often unwelcome. If your child is uncomfortable with the effect metal braces could have on his or her appearance and lifestyle, Colorado orthodontist Dr. Robert Rudman can discuss the suitability of Invisalign. Instead of the traditional metal brackets and wires, orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® involves the use of removable plastic trays to move the teeth and bite slowly into ideal placement.

Now, patients can entirely avoid this problem with iTero.
