Being a teen is challenging, and so is being the parent of one. At Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, we make it our business to ensure that our West Palm Beach braces make things as simple as possible for both of your. We offer an array of possibilities for realigning teenagers’ teeth, including traditional metal braces, as well as ones made of gold and ceramic, clear braces, and ones that are put on behind the teeth, also providing cosmetic benefits.
Every one of our valued patients is unique, and that is every bit as true for teens. Traditional metal braces today are made of high-grade stainless steel, and can be customized for a more stylish appearance that allows your child to express himself or herself as an individual. Metal braces are lightweight, especially when you compare them to the ones from the past. If your child would like the fashionability of gold, that is yet another choice among our West Palm Beach braces. Ceramic are also available, but unlike gold, they don’t stand out. Instead, they are less noticeable. They are a good choice if your child is concerned about her or his appearance and would not like to be to obvious about wearing braces. In a similar fashion, lingual braces are a variety that are placed not in front of the teeth, but rather behind them. If your child competes in sports, acts, or plays a wind instrument, for example, these are an excellent option because they do not obstruct. And then there is Invisalign, which is made of clear plastic and is also removable. Depending on your child’s needs and preferences, this might be the ideal selection for aesthetic purposes.
Let our orthodontist work with you and your teen child to identify the best possible choice when it comes to our West Palm Beach braces. Call us today to set up a consultation.
