Braces: What’s The Deal?
So, what’s the deal with braces? After all, they have been the tried and true method of perfecting smiles for decades. Braces are made up of two main parts: the bracket, and the archwire. Your teen will have two different bracket options to choose from: ceramic, which is tooth colored and less noticeable, or a traditional metal bracket. Then, you have the archwire, which is what actually moves the teeth into their preferred position.
The best part about braces is your teen will get to customize them at every visit! How, you might ask? With elastics! Whether they want to rep their favorite sports team or school colors, your teen will get to choose from a wide variety of elastics at each of their visits.
Do you have any questions? That is 100% normal and natural, and we would be happy to answer them! Now offering virtual or in-office complimentary consultations, you can bring your teen into any one of our locations to be evaluated. We’d love to meet you, and hope you stop in!
