Quintero Orthodontics Juan-Carlos Quintero, D.M.D. M.S. Align Yourself in Excellence

Teen Orthodontics


Teens are special. Dr. Quintero knows because not only was he a teenager once but has a few at home. He understands their concerns and knows how to talk to them. If your teenager needs treatment but is not thrilled about wearing metal braces, Dr. Quintero will carefully discuss all of the esthetic options available. At Quintero Orthodontics, Dr. Q offers clear alternatives, such as clear aligners, and offer the ultimate in cosmetic fixed and removable appliances for teens, both of which discreetly and effectively address numerous orthodontic problems.

Transparent braces

Brackets are the parts of braces that attach to teeth to hold the archwires in position. Traditional braces have silver metal brackets, a conspicuous feature that can take away from a person's image. If your teenager wants a less obvious alternative, ask Dr. Quintero about ultra clear brackets. Made from ceramic, these brackets offer the same results as bulky metal brackets but blend with your teeth so that they are less noticeable. Many patients agree that they are also more comfortable than metal brackets, with less irritation of the soft tissues of the mouth.

Invisalign for Teens

For cosmetic orthodontic treatment in teens, Dr. Quintero may recommend Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign has a special product made for teenage patients. The clear, removable aligners often reposition teeth in less time than traditional orthodontic therapy, and they're virtually invisible. Your teen will wear each aligner for about two weeks and then replace it with the next one in the series. For added insurance against lost aligners, Invisalign Teen offers up to six replacement aligners for free.

Dr. Q is dedicated to helping patients navigate their teen years with confidence and happiness. Your South Miami orthodontist looks forward to providing your teen with discreet treatments that result in a lifetime of healthy, attractive smiles
