Common Treatments for Teens:

  • Conventional braces: Most people select tried-and-true metal braces used with wires and a wide assortment of colors to bring out your personality
  • Clear braces: Some choose braces that are clear and less noticeable but have the same outstanding results. And you can still use colors if you want!
  • Invisalign Teen: This may be an option where clear, removable trays that are worn at all times (except eating!) and changed every fortnight (every 2 weeks for those of you living in the 21st century) to develop the smile you’ve always wanted.
