orthodontic treatment for teens

While many teens opt for braces to correct their teeth, there are now several alternative treatments that can achieve the same results. One such treatment is clear aligners, which are nearly invisible and can be removed for eating and cleaning. Another option is dental veneers, which are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth.

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, nearly 4.5 million Americans wear braces. While braces are the most common treatment for crooked teeth, they are not the only option.

If you’re a teenager, the thought of having to wear braces is probably not a happy one. Traditional metal braces can be painful and uncomfortable, and they can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. However, there are now a number of alternative options that can provide the same results without the need for metal hardware. Invisalign, for example, uses clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible when worn. This option is more comfortable than braces and can be removed for eating and cleaning.

There are also a number of new braces that use clear or tooth-colored brackets that are much less noticeable than metal braces. If you’re considering orthodontic treatment, be sure to ask your dentist about all of your options so you can choose the best one for you.

Invisalign® is a popular alternative to braces that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Because they are virtually invisible, Invisalign® aligners are much less noticeable than metal braces, making them a popular choice for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their smile. In addition, Invisalign® aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning, so there are no food restrictions or difficulty brushing and flossing. If you are considering straightening your teeth, be sure to talk to your orthodontist about all of your treatment options.

There are a number of alternative to braces for teens. Some of the most popular alternatives include clear aligners, retainers, and expander devices. Each of these options has its own set of pros and cons, so it is important to consult with an orthodontist to determine which option is right for you.

Both my wife and I have been coming here for years. The staff is wonderful, from the receptionists to the hygienists to the dentists. The wait is generally a minute or two if anything, and they do great work. Highly suggest them to anyone.

Dublin Dental Care is my go-to recommendation for anyone who asks for a reliable and honest dentist. All the providers are extremely helpful and really take the time to answer each of my questions. They are easy to schedule appointments with and are very flexible with last minute changes.

The best part? They are always on time and ready for my appointments, which is extremely appreciated.


Plus, their song selections are always litty.

In other news, the office is located next to a PokeStop.
