Braces and your teenager: What are your options?

The teenage years can be a difficult time in the life of your child. Kids are pressured to take perfect selfies, have flawless skin, and maintain model-like figures.

Many children who have noticeably crooked or unevenly spaced teeth suffer from bullying and low self-esteem.

Parents have several options:

 

How does your smile make you feel?

Many teenagers feel self-conscious about their teeth and equally stressed about having treatment. Traditional braces can draw attention to that part of the body that teenagers most feel stressed about.

On top of that, brackets and wires can irritate mouths, further compounding stress levels.

If you decide traditional braces are the right choice for your child, some changes will need to be made :

  • No more sticky or crunchy foods
  • Avoid contact sports
  • Take a break from playing wind instruments

If you’d rather avoid these kinds of compromises, you do have one option left.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen’s clear plastic aligners are pretty much invisible and are removable, unlike traditional braces.  

This has real benefits for your child:

  • Carry on playing contact sports such as rugby or hurling
  • No restrictions on diet
  • No pictures with a mouth full of metal!
  • Clean your teeth and gums as per normal
