Teens have special needs. Dr. Cabal remembers being a teenager and can empathize with the desire to look mature in younger years. If your teenager needs orthodontic treatment but he or she does not want to wear metal braces, other options are available. At Lake Country Orthodontics, Dr. Cabal offers tooth-colored brackets and Invisalign for teens, both of which discreetly and effectively address numerous orthodontic problems.
Brackets are the parts of braces that attach to teeth to hold the archwires in position. Traditional braces have silver metal brackets, a conspicuous feature that can take away from a person’s image. If your teenager wants a less obvious alternative, ask Dr. Cabal about tooth-colored brackets. Made from ceramic, these brackets offer the same results as bulky metal brackets but blend with your teeth so that they are less noticeable. Many patients agree that they are also more comfortable than metal brackets, with less irritation of the soft tissues of the mouth.
Invisalign for Teens
For cosmetic orthodontic treatment in teens, Dr. Cabal may recommend Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign has a special product made for teenage patients. The clear, removable aligners often reposition teeth in less time than traditional orthodontic therapy, and they’re virtually invisible. Your teen will wear each aligner for about two weeks and then replace it with the next one in the series. For added insurance against lost aligners, Invisalign Teen offers up to six replacement aligners for free.
Dr. Cabal is dedicated to helping patients navigate their teen years with confidence and happiness. Your Fort Worth orthodontist looks forward to providing your teen with discreet treatments that result in a lifetime of healthy, attractive smiles.
