Orthodontics for Teens

As children reach the adolescent stages of life, their permanent teeth have all come in and braces or Invisalign may be required. A lot goes into deciding what type of orthodontics will be recommended. Dr. Christian and our team will look at the positions of teeth and jaws in addition to facial proportions and symmetry. Bite measurements, evaluation of the gums and teeth, opening and function of the jaws and motivation of the individual are all taken into consideration.

Teens may have the choice between traditional metal braces, clear brackets, or ceramic (white) brackets. Invisalign provides a simple solution with the virtual invisibility of clear aligners.  The smooth comfortable plastic aligners are removable for easy cleaning and to allow you to eat whatever you want.  Any option is a good option when it comes to making your smile beautiful and building confidence!
