Wearing braces is typically associated with one’s teenage years. As permanent teeth replace deciduous teeth, there are often issues with their placement due to crowding and misaligned bites. While braces are commonplace among teenagers, there are actually many types of orthodontic treatment. Some patients can wear discreet alternatives to braces like Invisalign or lingual braces while others might require conventional braces.
Our team as Mascola Orthodontics individualizes orthodontic care for teens based on their unique needs and lifestyle. We have a number of treatment options available to help our young patients look and feel their best.
Why Orthodontic Care Matters
Orthodontics is a worthwhile investment in your health and wellbeing. A beautiful aesthetic and self-confidence are not the only benefits of having a straight smile. Properly positioned teeth reduce the risk of developing tooth wear, cavities, and periodontal disease. The way your teeth are spaced and positioned also promotes comfortable oral function. Wearing braces can help you establish and maintain a lifetime of optimal oral health.
