Cool Orthodontics for Teens

dca-blog_teen-dental-green-boy

Your teen may react to the idea of wearing braces as favorably as to a suggestion of wearing their grandparents’ clothes to school. Orthodontics simply don’t have the cool factor that’s so important to those going through the chaotic ups and downs of adolescence. Besides having a dramatic effect on their image, braces are sometimes uncomfortable and may affect their speech.

Fortunately, today’s orthodontics options can actually add a little “cool” to wearing braces. Orthodontics has come a long way in the past few decades, and wearing unsightly metal wires is no longer the only way to straighten teeth.

One option is Invisalign braces, which are cost effective and virtually invisible. They rely on a series of custom-designed aligner trays that are changed every few weeks to progressively shift teeth into position. Unlike metal braces, the aligners can be easily removed for eating and brushing. Even when you have an affordable dentist, the cost of office visits adds up. With Invisalign, fewer check-ups are required.

Another great orthodontics choice is lingual braces, which consist of brackets attached to the backs of teeth, so they aren’t visible from the front. Lingual braces are ideal for teens who play wind instruments or participate in contact sports.

Teens can even make their orthodontics a fashion statement. Standard brackets are available in clear, silver, gold, tooth-colored, and even glow-in-the-dark options, and bands and wires come in a multitude of colors, from metallic shades to bright neons. Since bands are changed at each orthodontic appointment, teens can get a new look for every season and new trend.

All types of orthodontics require some adjustments, so try to be sensitive to your teen’s emotional needs and physical comfort. Keep soft foods on hand in case of mouth soreness, and consult your orthodontist if your teen suffers pain or prolonged discomfort.

To keep your teen’s smile looking its best, get regular dental care from a skilled, affordable dentist.
