Traditional braces use stainless steel brackets and archwires to move your teeth into their proper position. Many teenagers like to decorate their braces with different colored rubber bands to give them a colorful and unique smile. You can choose a new color (or colors) during every adjustment!
The Damon® System uses self-ligating brackets and hi-tech, light-force archwires to improve your bite and smile. It’s a minimally invasive treatment that is proven to be more comfortable and efficient than traditional braces. The results are often extraordinary.
Most teens and adults are reluctant to get the orthodontic care they need due to the appearance of orthodontic appliances. That’s why we offer clear braces, which are much less noticeable than metal braces, but still give patients a smile they deserve. Clear braces are just like metal braces, but they are almost invisible.
Invisalign® is a wonderful, modern, alternative treatment to braces. You can straighten your teeth without installing metal in your mouth. Instead, we use plastic trays (also known as aligners) to move your teeth back into place. Each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth so you don’t have to worry about mouth irritation or anything else that traditional braces can cause.
Invisalign For Teens
Many teenagers are affected by malocclusions that need to be corrected. However, the thought of going through high school with braces may be your teen’s worst nightmare. Luckily, Invisalign Teen® can be very helpful. Your teenager can get the smile that he or she deserves without bulky wires and brackets.
After you have worn your braces for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is VERY important not to skip this step, or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may shift around or move back to where they were instead of staying in place.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is considered a dental specialty and helps complex cases involving the mouth, jaw, face, and skull. If your case requires surgical orthodontics, your orthodontist will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to provide you with the best and most comprehensive care possible.

Here at Gardens Orthodontics, we work hard to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We offer several different treatments that can be effective no matter how old you are. More and more orthodontic treatments are becoming available to give adults the smile that they want.
Braces For Teens
Braces are not as scary as most teens think. Technology has advanced a lot in recent years, providing us with newer styles of braces. The result is a faster, more comfortable, and more effective treatment. Braces come in different colors, styles, and materials, so your teen can customize their look and express their personality.
Founded in 1929, the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) is the oldest and most prestigious specialty board in the dental field.
The goal of the ABO is to promote the highest level of orthodontics. They want all orthodontists to be held to a high standard so that their patients are guaranteed the care they deserve. They also serve to protect the general public against orthodontists who are unqualified to practice.
The ABO has several main objectives. The first is to provide examinations and certificates to graduates who are able to practice orthodontics at a high level. They also offer a “diplomate’s career,” which means that orthodontists are re-evaluated throughout their career with examinations to ensure that they are practicing the way that they should be.
After an orthodontist becomes certified, the ABO helps to continue the orthodontist’s education with further education programs to study and promote the most modern technologies offered in the orthodontic field.
It is not easy for orthodontists to become board certified. They must pass both written and clinical examinations. The board will also go over their credentials to make sure they are qualified to receive the honor. This process can take between five and ten years. Once an orthodontist becomes certified, they will have to become recertified every ten years to maintain their status.
Once they are board certified, they can be called a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. This tells others that they are truly dedicated to development and excellence in the field.
