Self-esteem is incredibly important for teenagers, and a beautiful smile can be a huge boost to a teen's self-esteem. We see time and again how orthodontic treatment changes the lives of our teenage patients. Not only does it give them more self-confidence, but it also reduces their jaw pain, improves their bite, and prevents further dental issues down the road. With options such as clear braces and Invisalign, your teenager can get the perfect smile and that boost of self-confidence sooner than you may think!
We know a beautiful smile builds self-confidence. But teen orthodontics can benefit your child's overall health, as well. A bad bite can lead to jaw pain, headaches, tooth damage, accelerated tooth decay, and sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Orthodontic treatment can stop these issues before they start!Start A Virtual Consult ➞
Self-ligating braces are a step up from the traditional metal braces you're used to seeing. These work without elastic bands around each bracket. Instead, tiny doors hold the archwire in place and allow it to slide better. That means your teeth move into place faster and more comfortably than with traditional braces. Without the elastic bands, patients find self-ligating braces trap food less, so they're easier to clean. They also have shorter orthodontic checkups because elastics don't need to be changed.Learn About Self-Ligating Braces➞
Not all patients qualify for Invisalign clear aligners. Braces may be the better option. For those patients who feel self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces, Connolly Orthodontics offers clear braces. These braces use a ceramic material that's closer to your natural tooth color, so they're less visible than traditional braces. They still provide the same moving power of metal braces, giving you a smile you can be proud to show off during and after treatment!Learn About Clear Braces➞
