Building your teen’s self-esteem with braces

Building a teenagers self-confidence is all part of creating a positive and well-adjusted young adult, someone who takes pride in their work and is set up to tackle the challenges of teenage years and beyond.

One way you can help to grow a teenager’s self-confidence while wearing orthodontic braces is by choosing an invisible braces system, such as Invisalign.

A teenager will generally need to wear orthodontic braces for up to three years to improve their smile and to improve their dental health. Invisible braces that blend with the natural colour of your teeth are an ideal solution for image conscious teenagers.

Being transparent enough so they don’t show, invisible braces do not alter a person’s appearance dramatically like some metal braces do. Something teenagers prefer, during what can already been some awkward years in terms of change and development.

Invisalign are virtually invisible braces featuring removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners.

For more information about braces for teenagers, contact the team at Norwest Orthodontics for an initial consultation on 9672 6113.
