Orthodontic Treatments for Teenagers
Many teenagers dread getting orthodontic treatments because they imagine that heir braces will be large, uncomfortable, and highly noticeable. This is not necessarily the case. Dr. Sanders, orthodontist in Rocklin, offers several types of modern braces as well as Invisalign aligners.
Today’s modern braces feature smaller brackets and are less irritating to the mouth. The brackets are more streamlined and are contoured to fit the mouth better, making them less irritating and less noticeable. Teens can choose from several different types of braces, including the traditional silver-colored braces, braces with colored brackets, or even braces that are gold-colored or designed to look stylish.
Some teens prefer braces that are barely noticeable or invisible. In these cases, they may be able to select braces with clear brackets to make them almost invisible, braces that are attached to the insides of the teeth rather than the outsides, or Invisalign aligners. Invisalign aligners have transparent plastic trays instead of a bracket and wire system. These trays are virtually undetectable by the casual observer, making them a popular choice for teens and adults alike.

Dr. Sanders will be glad to examine your teeth and bite and recommend a type of braces or alignment system that will work with your specific alignment issue and match your sense of style.
