Your teenagers worry about many things as they make the transition from childhood to adulthood. But by continuing the good oral habits started early in childhood, they can have greater confidence in their appearance during this difficult transition.
Along with continuing good oral health habits, we offer braces to provide greater aesthetic appeal and a well-aligned smile and jaw lines.
Before your orthodontist gets started, make sure that you understand what type of braces are being used and how they will affect your teeth. According to the University of Rochester Medical Centre, there are typically three types of braces, all of which utilise wires and elastic bands to attach the braces together and align teeth.
These three types are brackets that are bonded to the front of the teeth, which are most typical for children, brackets that are bonded to the back of the teeth and metal bands that wrap around the teeth. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages, so be sure to discuss your options before deciding on the right treatment for your needs.
