The teen years are the most common age for braces treatment. However, teenagers themselves are not always fans. At our practice, we work hard to make treatment work well for all our patients, including tweens and teens.
Why do teens feel hesitant about getting braces? Well, first of all, not all teens feel this way. Many are excited about experiencing this rite of passage and sporting their braces for all to see. But for those who are not all that thrilled, it is usually because of how they look. Yes, braces and teens seem like a classic pairing, but for modern teens who are photographed all the time, they can be seen as a real problem.
To help, we offer teens multiple treatment options that will help them get the look they want during treatment and the smile they want after. These options include:
- Ceramic braces
- Invisalign teen
- Lingual braces
- Self-ligating braces
Ultimately, each teen will find the option they like best. To find out which ones might work for your child, schedule a consultation today.
