Remember when Van Nuys adolescents undergoing orthodontic treatment were mortified by their metal mouth? Thankfully, those days are over. The Sherman Oaks teens of today wear their braces proudly and make no effort to hide them. They know they don’t need to wait until their teeth are aligned to flaunt a striking smile; they enjoy flashing their brightly-colored braces in all their glory.
Another plus? Just as they mix and match their clothes and shoes, teens can change their wires and bands every time they visit their Van Nuys or Sherman Oaks dentist or orthodontist. Braces have become another fun way for Sherman Oaks and Van Nuys fashion-forward teens to express their personality.
Of course, there are still some kids (and many adults!) that are not thrilled about having metallic fuchsia bands and neon yellow wires adorning their teeth. Discrete Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable and straighten teeth just as quickly and effectively as metal braces. Another benefit of the Invisalign system is that the clear braces are not permanently attached to the teeth. Invisalign aligners are easily slipped out for brushing, flossing, meals, and sports. If your Sherman Oaks child plays a musical instrument that defies traditional braces, removable aligners may be the best option.
