Modern Orthodontics for Teens

Like young children, teens require special consideration when correcting their smiles. In addition to making sure that their teeth and jaws are properly aligned, Ciro Cabal, DDS, MS also takes into account the need to fit in and maintain a high level of self-confidence. To that end, we offer high-quality tooth-colored brackets and Invisalign® clear aligners—two orthodontic options that are designed specifically to remain as discreet as possible while effectively correcting your teen’s smile. If your teen wore interceptive orthodontics as a young child, then cosmetic orthodontic appliances may prove even more beneficial.

Cosmetic Orthodontics for Teens

Invisalign® clear aligners are one of the more popular orthodontic treatments for teens because they offer as much convenience as they do discretion. In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign® aligners are also removable. Before eating, brushing and flossing their teeth, or taking a photo, your teen can temporarily remove the aligners and then replace them when finished.

For teens who exhibit malocclusion that requires more comprehensive orthodontic treatment, Ciro Cabal, DDS, MS can recommend tooth-colored brackets made from highly discreet dental ceramic. Tooth-colored brackets offer the benefits of traditional orthodontic treatment, but allow your teen to remain confident in their smiles by remaining inconspicuous.
