Orthodontic treatment for teens

We know what being a teenager is like. There’s enough going on in your life without having to fit orthodontic appointments in so braces are probably the last thing you want.
But a straight smile can set you up for life and is also good for your overall health and well-being. A beautifully straight smile looks good too! So, if your parents have suggested it’s time to visit the orthodontist, or your family dentist has said you need braces, come on in to Northside Orthodontics.
Our team can talk to you about your treatment options and give you the low down on what life is really like with braces. It’s not as bad as it sounds.
Braces for teens
At Northside Orthodontics we offer treatment with our teenage patients in mind. One of the most popular treatment options is Invisalign – and for good reason. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible so you can have orthodontic treatment and get straight teeth without anyone knowing you’re wearing them.
Invisalign will straighten your teeth without you having to wear braces. Instead, you’ll get custom-made aligners, which look a little like a thin sports mouthguard, to place over your top and bottom teeth. The aligners are made from clear plastic so people will hardly be able to see you’re wearing them.
They’re also removable, so you can take them out when playing sports that you wear a mouthguard for or musical instruments, or for special occasions like school formals.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is made up of a series of aligners. You'll change your aligners at home and only need to visit our practice around every 8 weeks. You need to wear each set of aligners for one-two weeks. After that, take those old ones out and put a new set in. The new set has been moulded slightly differently to encourage your teeth to move that bit further until eventually you’ll have a beautifully straight smile.
Tell your parents
If Invisalign sounds like your kind of orthodontic treatment, but your parents want you to wear ‘proper braces’ because ‘they get better results’ – here’s a few things you can tell them:
- Invisalign can straighten teeth more quickly and effectively than traditional metal braces
- Invisalign aligners are removable so you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth. This means you’ll be able to keep your teeth clean during treatment.
- You’ll only need to visit us once every six-to-eight weeks, so that means your parents won’t have to drive you to appointments every week.
- Invisalign aligners come with a blue dot wear indicator so you and your parents can keep track of how often you’re wearing them. For the best results, you need to wear them 20-22 hours per day.
- Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible so you’ll be happy to wear them because no-one will be able to tell you’re having treatment.
