Dental braces for teens can help young adults transform their smiles by aligning crooked teeth, adjusting bite, correcting overbite, underbite, and many other common dental problems. Braces are custom treatments that address each patient’s unique needs. Different floors and designs also allow teens to express themselves and their preferred styles.
Dental braces for teens can treat a wide range of common dental problems including:
- Over-retained teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Spaced teeth
- Protruded teeth
- Delayed tooth eruption
- Jaw misalignment
- Trouble chewing, speaking, or biting
- Deep, open, cross, or under bite
Dealing with these problems during childhood and adolescence allows teens to get healthy, beautiful smiles that can last a lifetime. During your child’s appointment, we examine the health of your teen’s teeth, take x-rays and photos to get a detailed look at any dental problems, and to map out a unique treatment plan. We will discuss the different options available for treating your teen’s smile, including braces and Invisalign.
There are many different types of braces available from colorful braces to Invisalign for Teens. The treatment chosen depends on several factors including your teen’s oral health, the dental problem being addressed, and budget.
Types of Braces
Traditional braces consist of metal brackets and wires that work to align teeth and correct other imperfections or oral health concerns. Rubber bands come in many different colors, allowing teens to customize their appliances to express their styles. These rubber bands can be changed at each appointment to match school colors, a favorite outfit, or a favorite color.
Ceramic braces are made of translucent material that offer the precision of traditional braces without noticeable metal parts.
Invisalign for Teens is a virtually invisible appliance used to transform smiles with greater comfort and no food restrictions. Learn more about Invisalign for Teens here :
