Teen Braces Overview

When it comes to choosing orthodontic solutions for teenagers, the experts at Trü Orthodontics understand they need options to suit them. We can utilize traditional metal braces, InBrace lingual braces, or clear aligners like Invisalign® or our own Trü Clear Aligners.


Braces can treat a variety of alignment issues for your teen, including:



Open bite

Cross bite

Crowded teeth

Spaced teeth

Generally crooked teeth

How Teen Braces Work

Teen braces are orthodontic devices designed to correct misaligned teeth and jaw problems in teenagers. Metal braces, the most common type, consist of brackets attached to each tooth, connected by wires, which are periodically tightened to gradually move the teeth into place. Lingual braces work similarly to metal braces but are attached to the back of the teeth, making them less visible. Clear aligners, like Invisalign, are transparent, removable trays that fit over the teeth, offering a discreet option. They are replaced every few weeks to guide the teeth’s movement. Regardless of the type, these braces apply gentle pressure over time to straighten teeth and correct bite issues, improving your child’s oral health and self-confidence.

What to Expect

What your teen should expect will depend on the braces options decided on. For example, with clear aligners they will be able to take them out to eat and floss normally, and switch out aligners to progress their treatment. InBrace, by contrast, uses the same basic method as traditional braces, but placed on the inside of the teeth. Your provider will ensure you understand exactly what to expect of whatever treatment works best for your teen.
