From taking your first steps to buying your first car, your smile will be there as you celebrate the happiest moments of your life. It is more than just one of your most important features; it is your trademark – the first thing people see when you arrive and the last thing they remember about you once you’ve gone.
If your adolescent is currently unhappy with their smile, don’t let them settle. Invest in their smile makeover at Modern Orthodontics with Dr. Nick. With our compassionate care, quality service, and wide array of treatment options, there is no better doctor or practice you can trust with your child’s adolescent orthodontic treatment.
At Modern Orthodontics, we utilize revolutionary orthodontic tools and techniques to improve smiles. In order to get the most out of these various forms of treatment, we recommend that individuals receive orthodontic care during their adolescent years (between ages 11 and 15). This is because, while you are never too old to go after a straight smile, it is much easier to straighten teeth and correct bites during this age period.
Dr. Nick and his staff offer many different types of braces and band colors that are designed to make tooth correction as fun and easy as possible. Whether your child wants to add a pop of color to their braces, or prefers the inconspicuous look of Invisalign Teen, we have an orthodontic solution to meet their needs and lifestyle.
Invisalign is the most common and the most effective system of invisible aligner “braces” on the market. They provide a number of benefits, including the ability to completely remove the treatment to clean the teeth and the aligners when necessary. They are essentially invisible and can be far more comfortable than metal braces. A set of clear, removable trays that are custom fitted to your teeth. You wear them for 20-22 hours a day. Invisalign is usually more expensive than braces but here at Modern Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign at the same price of traditional braces!
Standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
Gold braces are actually made of stainless steel, just like standard braces. They just happen to be plated in gold! They are placed on the front of your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
Lingual braces are like traditional metal braces, so although they’re not invisible, they attach to the back of your teeth versus the front and are much less noticeable. Incognito Hidden Braces work behind the scenes – literally – so no one can see you’re wearing braces. The braces are hidden behind your teeth and practically invisible when you smile. And they’re 100% customized for you, so you can be confident in the results.
Ceramic braces are associated with being more discreet than metal braces. The way they are composed and colored makes them less noticeable than metal braces. Ceramic brackets are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
