Why Are Dental Braces An Option For Teens, And When Should They Be Placed?

Permanent teeth have fully emerged by the teenage years, making it the ideal time for orthodontic treatment. Partnering with a board-certified orthodontist like Dr. Nooshi Akavan will help make your process easier for your teen and you. If your teenager is experiencing any of the dental issues mentioned below, they may require braces to treat or correct them effectively.

  • Overcrowded Teeth
  • Uneven space between teeth
  • Improper jaw alignment
  • Difficulty chewing and biting
  • Speaking trouble
  • Openbite(space between upper and lower teeth when biting down
  • Crossbite (teeth may be abnormally close to cheek/tongue)
  • Overbite (Larger upper jaw compared to lower)
  • Underbite (more prominent lower jaw compared to upper)
  • Early or delayed baby teeth loss

Your initial consultation with Dr. Nooshi Akavan gives a complete overview of what to expect in placing dental braces for your teen. The initial consultation includes an examination with digital photos and X-rays. The visuals help for a thorough assessment of the teeth’s condition, and it also helps assess the best treatment option and care plan.

They are designed to cater to your teen’s dental needs while fitting their personality. Our choices include traditional options and Invisalign.

How Can I Choose The Best Dental Braces For My Teen?

Akhavan Orthodontics and Children’s Dentistry lead the way in dental braces teens will appreciate. Our extensive selection of Invisalign and ceramic and traditional and colored braces for teens will enhance their smiles and empower their life. Traditional braces combined with color for individual self-expression

Traditional braces are now smaller, boasting a sleeker, more comfortable look and feel. This is different in comparison to previous versions. Dr. Nooshi Akavan recommends conventional braces with metal brackets and colorful rubber bands holding the wires in place. The available colors are changeable to match your favorite or latest fashion trend.

Invisalign Teen

Teeth aligners, such as Invisalign Teen, give the same results as traditional braces and are practically invisible. Invisalign teeth aligners are made of quality plastic materials that custom-fit their teeth mold. The long-lasting material creates removable aligners that help straighten their teeth without preventing them from eating their favorite dishes and maintaining a healthy oral hygiene routine. They can smile easily with friends without a hint of wearing Invisalign.

Ceramic Braces

Created from semi-transparent materials, ceramic braces provide the precision of traditional braces while maintaining a natural-looking aesthetic vs. the metal or color alternatives.

Additional Appliances

Dr. Nooshi Akavan of Akavan Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry ensures you are equipped with the knowledge of all additional appliances available to compliment your teen’s dental braces. Other devices include expanders and any habit appliances needed to assist in severe bite correction.
