No head gear… ever.
Straightening teeth is more comfortable, more stylish, and faster than ever at OX Orthodontix. With either braces to color coordinate your outfit or Invisalign for a more discreet look, teen orthodontic treatment has never been better.
Why does my teen need Orthodontics?
Confidence and sense of self are developing during the teen years. But that’s not all, the growth of the jaws, face, and establishment of the bite are also happening at peak velocity during this sensitive time. It’s the perfect time to develop a bite and smile with orthodontic treatment that will last a lifetime.
Although there are options for clear aligner treatments for teens (Check out our Invisalign page) many teenagers prefer the always there convenience of braces. It’s one less thing to keep track of during these busy years.
Especially with braces, teenagers will have to continue brushing and flossing and keep up with regular dental visits to keep teeth clean. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and once the braces are off it’s easier than ever.
With virtual visits we can keep track of how your teen is doing wearing elastics and how well they are keep up with their oral care. Virtual visits mean far less missed work for you, and school for them.
What are the benefits for Invisalign over traditional braces?
There are reasons to wear either braces or invisalign. Many teens and their familys are opting for clear aligner treatment and here is why:
Sometimes the choice is clear.
Easier oral care
The aligners may be removed for brushing and flossing.
No food restrictions
Invisalign aligners can be removed at meal times, so you can eat whatever you choose.
Made from a flexible plastic, Invisalign aligners do not have irritating brackets or wires to worry about.
With the virtual invisibility of Invisalign, your teen can smile with confidence while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
