Braces Your Teenager Will Approve Of!

When your teenager needs orthodontic work, they are not going to want a mouth full of metal. Luckily, modern technology means there are numerous less visible brace options nowadays:

– Braces can be fixed to the back of the teeth (Lingual braces), use clear brackets (Damon braces) or involve invisible plastic trays (Invisalign).

– These appearance-friendly braces can treat orthodontic issues in a similar time-scale to traditional metal braces.

– It is important that your teenager still attends regular dentist check-ups to keep their teeth healthy while they have a brace.

“Fortunately, your teenager does have alternatives.”
