You've just heard the three words that every teen dreads: “YOU NEED BRACES!”
Not everyone is born with a perfect smile. So for many teens, wearing braces is inevitable. Don't worry! The good news is that today's image-conscious teens now have a choice for straightening their teeth. Braces aren't nearly as scary as you may think. In fact, braces today come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors, making life with braces much easier, more comfortable, and even more stylish than ever before. There are proven alternatives such as clear, removable braces, like Invisalign Teen, that meet teens' desire for aesthetic treatment and are a better fit for their busy lifestyles filled with sports, music and other activities.
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, patients age 12 to 17 years represent more than half of the over two million orthodontic case starts in the U.S. each year. And that includes your favorite teen celebrities who wear braces! Did you see the cover of People magazine this week? Kate Gosselin's daughters, Mady and Cara, are showing off their great smiles wearing metal braces!
