Fortunately our teenage patients can be treated with “clear choices” that eliminate the embarrassing look of “metal braces”. Most of our patients choose the Inspire Ice Braces because they are virtually invisible (http://www.iceclearbraces.com/) and provide an excellent result. Inspire Ice Braces work just like metal braces without being noticed.
Patients needing alignment only sometimes choose clear aligners which move the teeth into position without using any braces.
Regardless of the problem our teen patients have “Clear Choices” that will make orthodontic treatment a great experience instead of an embarrassing one. Most importantly our teens continue to enjoy hanging out, dating, sports and school without having to cover their mouth while laughing and smiling.
