Teen Orthodontic Treatment at Mar Orthodontics
For teens, a healthy smile can positively affect self-esteem and self-confidence. Having straight teeth might also positively impact a teenager’s role within their social circles and their behaviour, and improves nutrition and dental hygiene.
Our teen patients respond very well to Mar Orthodontics’ orthodontic education and hygiene program, which motivates them to develop and maintain healthy dental hygiene habits.
Mar Orthodontics welcomes teenagers, accepts and respects them as individuals, and empowers them to enjoy their orthodontic journey.
No doubt many teens are reluctant to get orthodontic treatment due to worries about braces, but with new orthodontic technology, virtually invisible treatments such as Invisalign may be a very good option for them.
Invisalign Teen is designed just for teens, and the clear plastic aligners are can accommodate new teeth. In addition there are wear indicators to help ensure treatment compliance and this treatment option offers six free replacement aligners.
Invisalign has continued to improve, and is now able to treat more advanced orthodontic cases, meaning more teens can use Invisalign for their unique needs.
Conventional & Lingual Braces Options For Teens in St. Albert, Sherwood Park & Edmonton
Mar Orthodontics is proud to offer a select variety of conventional braces and lingual braces options for teenagers. A number of our adolescent patients choose lingual braces because of their aesthetic appeal (lingual braces are worn behind the teeth so they can’t be seen by others). Conventional braces are also very popular among teenagers because of their trendy appeal – it’s hip to show off your braces and to make a personal statement with the colour and style of braces you wear.
