Does your teen feel self-conscious about their crooked teeth, but even more embarrassed about the thought of returning to school in the fall with a mouth full of metal braces?

Then consider an alternative at Davenport Dental Group!

This summer, set your child’s smile up for success by starting orthodontic treatment in Laredo, TX! Metal brackets and wires are highly-effective for straightening crooked teeth and correcting complicated bite problems, but that’s not the only way to get results!

Your Teen Will Love The Perks of ClearCorrect!

Thanks to improvements in dental technology, we can give your child a beautiful, straight smile without metal braces!

ClearCorrect is a system that teens and adults appreciate because it’s a faster, easier, and more comfortable alternative to conventional brackets and wires.

Here are a few things you can talk to your child about to prepare them for this remarkable treatment alternative and to help make the transition to orthodontics a lot smoother!

*The Long-Term Benefits Of Straight Teeth*

If your teen is apprehensive about braces, you can prepare them for orthodontic treatment by talking to them about the long-term benefits of straight teeth.

They’ll be able to keep their teeth clean more easily, maintain a healthy bite alignment, prevent premature wear on their teeth, and best of all, they’ll love their smile when treatment is over!

But if that’s not enough, you can explain that metal braces aren’t the only solution for crooked or gapped teeth!

ClearCorrect is a series of clear, removable aligners that work as well as metal braces and even do the job faster, all without forcing your teen to sacrifice their appearance or lifestyle.

*Summer Gives You Time To Adjust*

Another reason to get your child started on orthodontic treatment during the summer months is so they have time to adjust to life with braces before heading back to school.

Although, we should point out that clear aligners will be pretty easy to get used to! But still, it’s nice to be able to establish new routines without the stress of school, homework, and sports getting in the way.

Here are some of the features of ClearCorrect your teen will appreciate:

  • You take the aligners out for easy brushing and flossing.
  • You take them out at meal time and can maintain your normal diet.
  • For a special occasion, you can take out the aligners for about 1-2 hours a day.
  • You can finish ClearCorrect in as little as 12 months for faster results!

In other words, your teen’s life doesn’t have to be turned upside down with clear aligner therapy.

But change is still change, which is why it’s a good idea to begin the process during the summer so they can get used to their treatment before school starts again.

*Start A New School Year With Confidence*

We all remember how tough those middle and high school years can be!

Kids can be immature and careless, and when your child begins a new school year wearing braces, you both might worry about their peers teasing them about their appearance.

But because ClearCorrect is barely noticeable, at least your teen can return to school with confidence.

Instead of metal brackets and wires that stand out, clear aligners move teeth inconspicuously so your child won’t have to feel self-conscious about how they look.

Schedule A Summer Consultation!

Summer is the ideal time for parents to get their kids started on orthodontic treatment.

While your family’s day-to-day schedule may still be hectic because of camp, vacation, or summer sports, there’s more flexibility to make room for those first few appointments to get your teen started on ClearCorrect since school is out for many students.

And although this orthodontic innovation doesn’t require a long adjustment period, you and your child have more time to get used to life with clear aligner braces and get a nice jumpstart on the  straight, beautiful smile they’ve always wanted!
