Your teen may be concerned about how he or she is going to look with braces, and that’s certainly understandable, but orthodontic care is temporary, whereas the effects of not having treatment last forever. In addition to crooked or improperly positioned teeth making for a less than stellar smile, discomfort, a bite that is out of sync, and increased risk for tooth decay and gum disease are all issues that are associated with not wearing braces. Here at Davis Family Orthodontics, we have solutions for teens that make for a more positive and pleasant experience getting straighter teeth.
Not only are traditional metal braces more cosmetically pleasing today, but your teen may also be a good candidate for Invisalign, in which our braces in Morrow are visually undetectable. Not everyone will have the same needs and preferences. Many teenagers find that the stylish possibilities of metal braces are an enhancement to their appearance. Today’s version of our braces in Morrow are more lightweight and streamlined, too, and therefore more comfortable. There are some instances where metal braces are the only option, such as with particularly challenging problems with teeth positioning or crowding. But there are also many other times when Invisalign will work just as well. It’s a system of clear plastic aligners that are made at our office using digital photos, 3D software, and advanced machinery. Instead of just one set of braces, your teen will wear a different set of aligners every two weeks. Each one is perfectly calibrated to perform its own role in the overall process. And there are no food restrictions with Invisalign. The aligners simply come out when it’s time to eat.
