Teens get to have all the fun; and now is an amazing time for teenagers to have orthodontics. These incredible options include state-of-the-art metal braces, virtually invisible ceramic braces and Invisalign teen removable aligners. Technology dominates most aspects of our teen’s lives so why should their orthodontics be any different? Advanced orthodontics allows us to move teeth faster, with more precision and more comfortably than ever before. Even though our teens don’t know how good they have it, we still love them and try to give them only the best! Together let’s create for them a radiant smile that will help them shine.

Although they may look like regular braces, there is nothing traditional about the metal braces we use. These amazing state-of- the-art orthodontic brackets help move teeth more efficiently and comfortably than ever before. Small high technology laser cut stainless steel brackets are bonded onto the surface of each individual tooth. A thin customized arch wire runs through the brackets and places a gentle force to guide your teeth into their ideal position, giving you that gorgeous smile. Kids love the option of accessorizing their braces with color. Whether they choose color combinations to represent school spirit, their favorite holiday, or to cheer on their sports teams, we get just as excited as the kids to make their braces fun!
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
For those seeking all the benefits of braces but who also want amazing esthetics, clear braces are the way to go. Today’s ceramic brackets are truly amazing. They are made from zirconium, the same material used to make fake diamonds! They are so clear that you and your friends will forget that you are wearing them. Just like metal braces, brackets are bonded onto the surface of each individual tooth. We combine these braces with a thin high esthetic wire which is designed to blend in with your natural tooth color. This wire runs through the brackets and is “tied” in with clear elastics. These virtually invisible ceramic brackets are a discreet alternative to traditional brackets; you are going to love them.
These aligners are specifically designed with needs of our teen patients in mind. Customized to the growing mouths of teens, these clear removable aligners can give you an invisible way to straighten your teeth. We are so excited to offer Invisalign Teen as a clear alternative to braces. When worn properly, they are just as effective as braces with many advantages. Being removable allows you the freedom to not interfere teen’s busy lifestyle and activities such as playing sports or musical instruments. Eat all the hard foods you want, there are no restrictions. Invisalign teen aligners are removed when eating and while brushing or flossing.
