The stereotype of teenagers is that they are overly dramatic; every tiny thing can set them over the edge. What we forget is how hard being a teenager actually is. So much of what we simply see as part of life is brand-new to them and incredibly overwhelming. Orthodontic treatment won’t cure all their problems—there is still school, friends, family, and more to worry about—but we can make life a bit easier by giving them a beautiful and confident smile.
Modern braces and other orthodontic treatments work faster than their predecessors and offer improved aesthetics. During our initial consultation, we will take time to go over the options with your child to help him or her find the one that is the most comfortable and best suited for the issues at hand.
Some treatments our teen patients have used are:
- Ceramic braces
- Clear braces
- Self-ligating braces
- Invisalign Teen
- Traditional braces
