TREATMENT FOR TEENS
At Sherrard Orthodontics, we provide a variety of options to get your teen excited about their smile journey.
Braces are an exciting step towards confidence and a beautiful smile. Braces are composed of three parts: the bracket, the archwire, and elastics. The metal bracket is the element that sits in the middle of your teen’s teeth and are specific to each tooth. Connected to a thin archwire, the two elements work together to reposition your teen’s teeth over time to the desired result. Your orthodontist may give your teen additional elastics for added pressure where it is needed. Your teen won’t be able to stop smiling once they see the end results: a healthy and perfect smile!
If your teen is looking for a more discreet option, we offer a clear braces option that your teen will love! Ceramic braces use brackets that are clear and blend into your teen’s teeth. Ceramic braces are less noticeable than metal braces but are primarily made up of the same system to move your teen’s teeth to achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
We also offer an exciting option that is the clear alternative to braces. Invisalign Teen is an innovative piece of technology that will give your teen the perfect smile they are dreaming of without the look of braces. Invisalign is made up of a series of clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, removable, and custom-made for your mouth. With each new set of aligners and with a little bit of time, your teen’s teeth will move to the desired results. All your teen must do is wear their aligner and change them out for the next set every two weeks. That’s right, it’s that easy! With Invisalign, you don’t have to give up your favourite food, drinks or worry about playing sports. Since the trays are removable, your teen can still enjoy their favourite meals and activities. Achieve your perfect smile without anyone knowing you’re wearing anything on your teeth. Now that’s something that should make you smile!
