Remember when Orem adolescents undergoing orthodontic treatment were mortified by their metal mouth? Thankfully, those days are over. The Orem teens of today wear their braces proudly and make no effort to hide them. They know they don’t need to wait until their teeth are aligned to flaunt a striking smile; they enjoy flashing their brightly-colored braces in all their glory.
Another plus? Just as they mix and match their clothes and shoes, teens can change their wires and bands every time they visit their Orem dentist or orthodontist. Braces have become another fun way for Orem fashion-forward teens to express their personality.
Of course, there are still some kids (and many adults!) that are not thrilled about having metallic fuchsia bands and neon yellow wires adorning their teeth. Discrete Invisalign invisible braces are virtually undetectable and straighten teeth just as quickly and effectively as metal braces. Another benefit of the invisible braces is that the aligners are not permanently attached to the teeth. Invisalign aligners are easily slipped out for brushing, flossing, meals, and sports. If your Orem child plays a musical instrument that defies traditional braces, removable aligners may be the best option.
