Orthodontic treatment options for Perth teens

Teenagers are the group who most commonly undergo orthodontic treatment in Perth. Traditional metal braces are still the most popular treatment option for teens. Ceramic or clear braces in Perth are another option that is used in the same way as metal braces but are less visible. For specific cases, including minor corrections, Invisalign clear aligners are also an orthodontic treatment option and are becoming more popular due to their aesthetic appearance.
