When you think of orthodontics, you likely picture silver brackets and metal wires. Traditional braces have truly stood the test of time, helping children correct even serious dental concerns and achieve a beautifully confident smile in a reliable fashion. We also offer plenty of fun colors to choose from for the rubber elastics that attach the orthodontic wire to the brackets. Your son or daughter can pick the perfect arrangement that shows off their personality!
Traditional braces can be difficult to wear for younger patients who are worried about their appearance. If your son or daughter is unwilling to be stuck with a mouthful of metal for months or years at a time, clear braces may be a good alternative. Their components are virtually the same as regular orthodontics, but they’re clear or tooth-colored in nature, which allows them to blend in with the teeth much better.
Invisalign is a popular cosmetic orthodontic solution today, but many people incorrectly believe they’re limited to adult use. Thankfully, there’s Invisalign Teen! Instead of brackets and wires, your son or daughter can look forward to straightening their teeth with clear, customized aligners. These aligners are barely noticeable when worn, and they can be removed at any time for eating, brushing, or flossing. They’re perfect for busy, image-conscious teens on the go.
After our young patients have completed their orthodontic treatment, the last thing we want is for their teeth to gradually revert to their original, unwanted positions. Thankfully, our Harker Heights orthodontists can provide Vivera Retainers that do a great job of keeping smile improvements sturdily in place. These custom-made appliances are comfortable and highly effective as long as they’re worn as instructed.
