At Lake Country Orthodontics, we understand the unique changes and challenges that teens face. When we were growing up, there were limited options for straightening and aligning teeth. Today’s orthodontic appliances are better-suited to teenagers who desire a discrete way to achieve a straighter, more attractive smile. For appealing orthodontics in Fort Worth, consider these popular options from Dr. Ciro Cabal.
Colored Brackets Blend With Teens’ Teeth
Classic wire braces continue to be a popular option for children and teens whose teeth require significant straightening. Until recently, metal brackets were available only in silver. These brackets served their purpose, but they were very conspicuous, making many teens reluctant to wear them. Your Fort Worth orthodontist, Dr. Ciro Cabal, now gives children, teens, and adults the option to wear tooth-colored brackets. These smooth brackets are more discrete than their metallic predecessors, so the wearer feels less self-conscious. We find that the tooth-colored version works equally well as other options. As an added bonus, our patients note that these brackets are less prone to causing irritating their sensitive mouths and gum tissue.
Clear Is Cool: Invisalign Invisible Braces
Invisalign straighteners eliminate bulky hardware in favor of clear, plastic liners that can be discretely worn and removed. Clear braces apply gentle, firm pressure to coax teeth into the desired position. Our teen-aged patients can appreciate the ease of enhancing their smile without calling attention to themselves. As an added bonus, invisible braces do not interfere with your teen’s oral hygiene regimen. With no wires to work around, patients find brushing and flossing easy as ever. As a result, they are less likely to experience gum irritation or cavities during the straightening process. This option also appeals to teens who are active in athletic programs at school. Football, track, volleyball, and soccer become more enjoyable when your teen isn’t distracted by stray wires and rough edges.
