If you’re worried about whether your teenager finds you cool anymore don’t worry, at least you can take them to a cool place to get their braces. We know most teens don’t get excited about much, but East Tennessee Orthodontics was built around being a fun and energetic experience. We love interacting with our teenage patients whether in the office or over social media and our doctor is just cool enough for your teen. We can’t promise that we can convince them that you are still cool, but we will take the best care of them possible and give you a few minutes to relax during their appointments.
We offer the following treatment options for our teenage patients:
Metal braces and wires with colored ties that are changed every visit.
Transparent braces that can either have clear or colored ties. The colors on the braces really stand out. They can also be paired either with coated tooth colored or traditional metal wires.
You read that right, but not these are not what you think. These are a subtle gold color that really blends into teeth. These are our newest “esthetic” option and everyone we put them on really loves the look of them.
Just like cola can be made by Coke, Pepsi, or other companies, clear aligners are produced by numerous companies. We can also produce our very own ETO aligners for certain types of treatment using digital impressions and 3D printing. Our goal is to give you the best result using the most cost-effective method. You can rest assured this isn’t “at home” treatment you purchased over the internet. This is supervised treatment by a highly trained dental specialist so you can be confident in the treatment and the results.
For those that just can’t bear the thought of braces. These are a series of clear plastic removable trays that move teeth a little at a time and are changed out every week. Invisalign is the brand we use most frequently.
