Braces for Teens: Entrust Dr. Halgren with Your Teens Smile
We are a Top Braces Provider for Teens in Mount Vernon & Orcas Island, WA
Braces are no longer dreaded by teenagers. In fact, braces are a right of passage for most teens. The majority of facial growth occurs during the teenage years, and most teens have all of their adult teeth, making them the perfect candidates for braces. With this ideal timing and Dr. Halgren’s years of expertise, your teen will be on their way to a new smile in no time!
Our teens can’t wait to see what their new smile will look like after treatment. At Halgren Orthodontics, our treatment goal is to not only transform your teen’s smile but also enhance their oral health. Misaligned teeth, or crooked teeth, are harder to clean and can cause extra wear of tooth enamel. Entrusting Dr. Halgren with your orthodontic treatment results in a beautiful, healthier, and happier smile!
Braces for Teens at Halgren Orthodontics
Braces have been around for over 100 years, and are still the most effective way to straighten teeth. But thankfully, braces have improved a lot since then. Braces now have smaller brackets and advanced wires for a more comfortable fit. With braces, Dr. Halgren can correct even the most complex orthodontic issues. Braces can correct:
- Malocclusion or bad bite
- Spacing or crowding issues
- Jaw pain and headaches
- Sleep apnea and speech impediments
At your first appointment, Dr. Halgren and his team will collect digital scans and photos of your mouth to map out the perfect treatment plan. This is a great time to ask questions and make sure you’re comfortable with your treatment plan. Dr. Halgren and his team want you to feel informed and comfortable with every step of your treatment plan. We want you to enjoy your treatment as much as you enjoy your new smile!
Knowing Your Options: Which Type of Braces is Right For You?
Now that you’re ready to start your journey to a new smile, how will you know which type of braces will be the best for your smile? Leave that part up to the experts! There are several factors that Dr. Halgren will consider when developing your treatment plan and determining your type of braces. Your degree of misalignment, treatment speed, cost, and aesthetic preferences are just a few of the determining factors.
Each orthodontic case is unique and requires a custom treatment plan paired with the correct treatment type. Dr. Halgren offers various types of treatment to better serve each patient’s individual needs. At Halgren Orthodontics, we have three different braces options; traditional braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign. After your initial consultation, Dr. Halgren will present your treatment plan and discuss which braces option is right for you!
Traditional Metal Braces
Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires.
Clear or Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces work the same as metal braces but can be clear or tooth-colored and are a more aesthetic option.
Invisible Braces (Invisalign)
Invisalign is the most discreet treatment option. These aligners are clear and molded to the teeth, making them almost invisible.
