Your Back-to-School Checklist: Getting an Orthodontic Consult

While you likely already have new clothes and school supplies on your child’s back-to-school shopping list, be sure to add the best accessory for fall (and beyond): a brand-new smile!

The formative middle school and high school years are an opportune time to build strong self-esteem, and pursuing orthodontic treatment is a great way to do just that. After all, one thing that can increase confidence exponentially is a straight, healthy smile. Teens whose teeth, gums, and jaw are cared for properly will not just speak and chew with ease but be more likely to smile with confidence.

At Adirondack Orthodontics, we can provide the orthodontic services needed to give your child their ideal smile on a payment plan that works with your budget and appointments that fit with your schedule. Whether your child has an overbite, underbite, or crooked teeth, we can craft a treatment to help them smile. Take a look at the two main types of treatments we offer below.

Transform Your Child’s Smile with Traditional Braces

Metal braces are a tried-and-true choice for your child’s orthodontic journey, as this option has been used by orthodontists for decades. Braces involve applying brackets to the teeth, which are then connected by wires. During each appointment, the orthodontist will adjust the wires and fix them in place with small, colorful rubber bands. These careful adjustments will gradually move teeth into the desired positions.

Achieve Your Child’s Ideal Smile with Invisalign

Invisalign has quickly become one of the top choices for teens and adults alike. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that slowly move the teeth into place. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners can be taken out as needed, making them a more flexible option and making it easier to brush and floss. And, since the aligners are clear, this is one of the most discreet options.
