If you want a more aesthetically pleasing option for your teen, Invisalign clear aligners might be the right solution. Invisalign Teen is a system of clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible when worn.
This treatment option is great for teens. The aligners are removable, meaning there is far less chance of damage to teeth or gums. They are comfortable to wear and will spend less time out of school/work for adjustments.
The result speaks for themselves; Invisalign leads to beautifully straight teeth and a confidence-boosting smile.
While metal braces are the most common type, they are not always the best option, especially for teens with an active lifestyle.
Clear braces offer an aesthetic alternative just as effective as metal braces.
At Park Orthodontics, we offer both metal and clear braces so that you can choose the best option for your teen.
Clear, strong, and beautiful — clear braces offer an aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces.
As the name suggests, mini braces are smaller than traditional braces and are made of high-quality clear or metal brackets. This gives them the strength to straighten your teeth, while their more minor appearance brings a refined look to your smile. Our revolutionary mini braces can solve almost any minor orthodontic problem — including gaps, bad bites, and overlapped teeth.
Mini-Braces help you achieve the best smile possible in the least amount of time!
At Park Orthodontics, we offer both metal and clear braces, Invisalign clear aligners, and other treatment options to give you the best possible results.
If you are interested in any of these treatment options or want to learn more, contact us today and schedule a free consultation!
Fixed metal braces are a great choice because they are the most economical. They are also the ideal choice for younger teens because they are the most flexible and can change with your teen's needs.
The average time for a teenager to wear braces is about two years.
Traditional braces may cost anywhere from £2,000 to £5,000. More modern braces or Invisalign may cost more, depending on how long your teenager needs the orthodontics and how many practice visits they have.
There are four different types of braces generally available today.
Traditional Metal Braces - Metal braces are the most common variety today and the least expensive. Thanks to modern technology, the metal brackets are much smaller than they were before. Braces usually need monthly or bi-monthly adjustments.
Ceramic or Tooth-Coloured Braces - Ceramic braces are much less noticeable because they look much closer to the natural colour of your teeth. They are about the same size and shape as traditional metal braces.
Lingual Braces - Lingual braces, rather than sitting on the front of your teeth, are cemented on the back of your teeth. These kinds of braces are just like traditional metal braces.
Invisalign - Invisalign represents the most advanced type of braces. Orthodontists typically recommend Invisalign for mild cases of misaligned teeth. It is much more comfortable than traditional braces, and Invisalign uses about 30 invisible trays that gradually align teeth. Your orthodontist replaces trays every couple of weeks.
You may experience slight discomfort with your braces once you have them on because your teeth aren’t used to the slight pressure from the wires. Your orthodontist might suggest a mild pain reliever to alleviate the discomfort. Your teeth and gums may feel tender the first week you wear braces. You can also use dental wax to protect your lips and the sides of your mouth from irritation.
Yea, you can defiantly kiss whilst wearing orthodontic appliances!
