If your child needs braces, choosing the best kind of treatment plan is a major decision. Regardless of which option you choose, you can expect it to be a considerable investment of time. You want to be sure that your child has a type of braces that will be effective. At the same time, you want to help your child to be comfortable with whatever type of braces he or she needs. Our experienced specialist will be able to assist you in navigating the world of orthodontics and determining the best types of braces for children.
Traditional Braces are Still One of the Most Popular Options
While there have been many advances in the field of orthodontics, traditional metal brackets and wires are still a typical solution for orthodontic problems. However, if your child is self-conscious about metal brackets, our specialist may be able to offer other options, such as ceramic brackets that are white or clear.
Clear Aligners are a Favorite
In the end, the main goal is to choose the treatment option that will give your child the best results. However, you can help your child to be more comfortable with his or her treatment option. Clear aligners may be an alternative to traditional braces for children. Clear aligners are practically invisible. They will go to work, gradually shifting your child’s teeth into the proper position. They can be removed when your child needs to clean his or her teeth. They can also be taken out during sporting events or special functions. Both adults and teenagers like clear aligners because they are such a flexible option.
