Want a better bite without the conspicuous look of traditional braces?

Today, lots of subtler alternatives exist. Ceramic braces are the most similar to traditional metal braces, but also the most visible. Invisible aligners are the most popular option, but are still somewhat visible and require the most diligence. Lingual braces on the backs of teeth are the least visible, but not as viable as the other options.

Brushing and flossing are especially important for kids with braces. Help your child care for their braces with these three tools.

- Soft-bristled toothbrush: Encourage kids to brush above and below braces at a 45-degree angle.
- Inter-ortho brush: Next, reach between braces with a cone-shaped, inter-ortho brush.
- Floss threader: Most kids with braces benefit from floss threaders, which create a loop for dental floss. This makes threading floss behind braces brackets much easier.

While Invisalign trays are more minimalistic, they can still be used to correct jaw positioning. Like braces, rubber bands can be attached to the back teeth to provide connective force to pull the mandible forward or backward. Bite turbos can also be applied to lingual surfaces to separate the jaw when closed.
