Young patients who are still in middle school have no problem getting braces when the time comes. Most of their peers are in the same boat, so it’s easier to have a mouth full of metal at that age without feeling self-conscious.
But what about older teens and adults who have crooked or gapped teeth? The social and professional stakes at that point are much higher, so orthodontics become less and less appealing.

This discreet option is a much more attractive type of orthodontic treatment than what you’ll hear him refer to as metal “train tracks” on your teeth.
