Braces For Teenagers
At Pierce Aesthetics, Newport Beach, CA, we offer an extensive range of braces for teens that ensure an effective smile makeover while also making a style statement. If you are seeking the right orthodontic option for your teen, Pierce Aesthetics’ orthodontist Dr. Natalie Dang answers some frequently asked questions related to the choice of braces and explains below the process of getting them placed.
Why and When Should My Teen Get Braces?
Since permanent teeth are in place at this stage, teen years are a suitable time for orthodontic treatment. At Pierce Aesthetics, Dr. Natalie Dang, an experienced and board-certifiedorthodontist, will help you select the right orthodontic treatment option for your teen. In case your teenager is experiencing any of the below mentioned dental issues, they may require braces to treat or correct them effectively.
- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- Difficulty in speaking
- Trouble biting and chewing
- Misaligned jaw
- Abnormal space between teeth
- Crowded and protruded teeth
- Teeth that are very close to the cheek or tongue (Crossbite)
- Significantly larger upper jaw than the lower (Overbite)
- Space, when biting down, between lower and upper front teeth (Open Bite)
- Larger lower jaw than the upper (Underbite)
During the orthodontic consultation, Pierce Aesthetics’ orthodontist Dr. Natalie Dang will carry out a detailed check of your child’s teeth, including visual examination, digital photos, and X-rays to assess the condition, determine the best option and create a treatment plan. At Pierce Aesthetics of Newport Beach, California, we have a wide range of teen braces available to suit your teen’s needs and personality including traditional and Invisalign®.
What Type of Braces Are Best For My Teen?
Pierce Aesthetics is a leading provider of braces for teenagers in its community. We have a comprehensive selection of ceramic braces, Invisalign® for teens, and traditional or colored braces to bring that radiant smile and confidence in your teen’s life.
Traditional Colored Braces That Express Individuality
Today’s traditional braces are far smaller, sleeker and comfortable than they were in the past. The traditional braces that Dr. Natalie Dang recommends use metal brackets and wires that are held in place using colored rubber bands. Your teen can choose to change the color of the band to match a dress, to make a fashion statement or to cheer up their favorite sports team.
Invisalign Teen® aligners are as effective as traditional braces while being virtually invisible. Since Invisalign® aligners are made of long-lasting and easy-fit plastic materials, they aresimple to remove and wear. With Invisalign® For Teens, your loved ones can remove the aligners any time when they want to relish their favorite dish, and they are also easy to wash and maintain. Teens also love Invisalign® aligners as they are almost invisible and help them straighten their smile without their friends knowing about it.
Ceramic braces are made of semi-transparent material and offer the accuracy of traditional braces while being aesthetic-looking—without glaring metal or color showing on their teeth.
At Pierce Aesthetics our orthodontist Dr. Natalie Dang may also suggest additional dental appliances to complement braces or to wear them separately as per the needto your teen. They may include expanders, and functional and habit appliances to help correct severe bite problems.
