Most teenagers have crooked teeth before braces, so don’t worry if yours aren’t straight!The teen braces we use at Soleil Orthodontics are less noticeable than the ones people used years ago, and are specially designed to straighten your teeth faster and more gently. We will see you every 6-8 weeks to make adjustments to your teen braces (and to change your colors, of course!). If your teeth need a little extra help, we may ask you to wear rubber bands outside of the office. Most treatments with braces last about 18-24 months.
If you’d prefer wearing braces that are a bit less noticeable, we have a “clear braces” option. The main benefit to wearing braces is that your only job is coming to see Dr. Soleil! We’ll do all the work for you.
Alternatively, Invisalign is another option that you may be interested in. With Invisalign, we customize your treatment for you by designing a series of aligners – then it’s your responsibility to wear your aligners 22 hours per day (changing to a new aligner each week) to move your teeth! If you think Invisalign is right for you, read more at Invisalign Teen.
