The teenage years are the most common ones for braces treatment. But just because they are who we think of when we picture braces patients does not mean all teens are happy with their silver grin. That is why we offer numerous forms of treatment for our adolescent patients.
Why do braces bother teens? For the same reasons they bother adults—they are shiny and bright, they require lifestyle changes, and they can be uncomfortable. Of course, some teens love their braces, but we have worked hard to give all patients choices in treatment. Some options for teens include:
- Ceramic braces
- Invisalign teen
- Lingual braces
- Self-ligating braces
We assist teen patients in making the best choice based on a balance between their wants and needs. To learn more, schedule a consultation.
