After a thorough consideration of all her options for orthodontic treatment, Tessa made a decision she surely wouldn’t be regretting.
Little could know Tessa Dyer, an 18 year old from London derry, New Hampshire, that her dental appointment to undergo orthodontic treatment would make her smile the way it did.
She happened to be the 2 millionth patient worldwide to be treated with Invisalign, an orthodontic corrective method based on virtually invisible devices. After consulting with her dentists about her options for teeth straightening treatment, Tessa decided for a clear braces method which would be both comfortable and nearly invisible.
Her excitement about getting the treatment, however, was just the tip of a very sweet iceberg: being the 2 millionth Invisalign Teen patient, Tessa had the full cost of her treatment covered by Align Technology, the company behind the design, creation and marketing of Invisalign, a misalignment and malocclusion correction method introduced in the market in 1999 as one of the most revolutionary innovations of the last 20 years of orthodontic dentistry.
The reasons of Tessa’s choice couldn’t be more understandable: “Invisalign Teen best fit my lifestyle and, best of all, hardly anyone will be able to tell I am straightening my teeth”. A clear alternative to metal braces in terms of straightening teeth, Invisalign consists of a series of clear custom-made trays that adapt to the dental needs of every patient. The trays guide your teeth from their current to the desired place, so when moving to the next tray, approximately every two weeks, the teeth progressively and comfortably realign to correct any position or bite problems.
Even though the price of Invisalign braces is quite higher than that of traditional metal braces and brackets, it is remarkable how, in only 13 years, it has become the preferred choice of both adult and teenager patients. Since 2008, when Invisalign Teen was first introduced to help teens and young adults keep track of their treatment and achieve better orthodontic results, around 260 thousand teenagers between 11 and 19 years old have been treated with that method. Invisalign Teen provides the same clear braces trays that are characteristic to Invisalign treatments, but include some useful differences: a blue wear-indicator fading from blue to clear to help you know when to move to the next tray; special features designed to compensate for the eruption of second molars and premolars, as well as canines; and six free replacement aligners in case of damage or loss of the original ones.
Teeth straightening with clear braces is virtually unnoticeable, comfortable and convenient. It promotes a better oral health, allowing you to perform a thorough dental hygiene.
