Orthodontics with a Cool Factor

dca-blog_teen-dental-green-boy

Family dentistry professionals understand that teens don’t to react favorably to the idea of orthodontics. While already enduring the rollercoaster ride of adolescence, learning that they may end up with a mouth full of wires is quite a blow to their image, and that’s before they learn about the potential discomfort and altered speech. With today’s advanced options in orthodontics and their fashionable accessories, wearing braces isn’t the nightmare it used to be. Your teen may be surprised to find that some “cool” orthodontics are available.

Orthodontics has come a long way in the past few decades, and wearing unsightly metal wires is no longer the only way to straighten teeth.

The Invisalign system is virtually undetectable. It relies on a series of custom-designed aligner trays that are changed every few weeks to progressively shift teeth into position. Unlike metal braces, the aligners can easily be removed as needed for eating and brushing. They’re also cost-effective. Even when you have an affordable dentist, the cost of office visits adds up. With Invisalign, fewer check-ups are required.

Lingual braces are another great option. They consist of brackets attached to the backs of teeth, so they aren’t visible from the front. Lingual braces are ideal for teens who play wind instruments or participate in contact sports.

Some teens may want to approach the challenge from a different angle by making their braces a fashion statement. Standard brackets are available in clear, silver, gold, tooth-colored, and even glow-in-the-dark options, and bands and wires come in a multitude of colors, from metallic shades to bright neons. Since bands are changed at each orthodontic appointment, teens can get a fresh look for every season and new trend.

Any type of orthodontics requires some adjustments, so try to be sensitive to your teen’s emotional needs and physical comfort. Keep soft foods on hand in case of mouth soreness, and consult your orthodontist if your teen suffers pain or prolonged discomfort. To keep your teen’s smile looking its best, obtain regular dental care from a skilled, affordable dentist.
