Are Braces Right For My Teen?

Many parents want to know if braces make sense for their teen. These parents are usually concerned about their teen’s feelings, and they don’t want to add to the stresses of adolescence. Getting braces doesn’t mean what it used to mean. Nowadays, orthodontic treatment has transformed and allows for a comfortable and discreet alignment. We are proud to offer metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign clear aligners for your teen! 

The best way to know if braces are right for your teen is to schedule a consultation. When you come in for an orthodontic consultation, Dr. Bo and Dr. Baker will look at many things to determine whether or not your teen should get braces. They will evaluate them for bite alignment, oral hygiene, and the responsibility level necessary to take care of braces. 

We proudly offer these options:

Clear Braces

Damon clear braces function the same way the Damon metal braces do, except they are less noticeable and more aesthetically pleasing. These braces use a transparent ceramic material with clear brackets that allow for discreet treatment. They are an excellent option for teens who are not candidates for Invisalign but still want to enjoy a less visible treatment option.

Metal Braces

Most people think of traditional metal brackets when they think of braces. We use the Damon System in our office, which utilizes a wire and brackets to move teeth. Our braces use a self-ligating mechanism that holds the wire onto the bracket without relying on irritating elastic ties. The Damon metal brackets for a more comfortable treatment experience. Plus, since plaque cannot get trapped underneath elastic ties, your teen enjoys a more hygienic treatment.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign uses clear trays that function similarly to traditional braces by using light pressure to move teeth. But instead of wires and brackets, they use clear removable aligners. These aligners are custom made for your teen’s specific needs. Your teen can enjoy a new smile by merely wearing aligners for 20-22 hours a day. They will just need to switch out their aligner set every few weeks. Invisalign can be taken out to eat and drink.

What Are The Benefits of Braces for Teens?

Teen braces can help solve many oral health issues, including crowding and spacing. And they can minimize the need for extractions, improve bite pattern (crossbites, open bites, overbites, underbites), improve jaw growth, and can even help speech difficulties. 

All braces work by placing consistent, light pressure on the teeth to move them in the ideal position gradually. Braces have been around for a long time. And they provide an ample amount of benefits, including: 

  • Teen braces are much less noticeable than treatments used decades ago. 
  • Better bite and jaw alignment, preventing the need for surgery 
  • Ability to widen smile arches to create a broader, fuller smile
  • An improved appearance and increased self-esteem
