Braces offer countless benefits to middle schoolers. In addition to their health benefits, braces can improve self-esteem and help middle school students from Bak Middle School of the Arts in West Palm Beach feel more confident in and out of school. If you are the parent of a Bak student with crooked teeth or a bad bite, your child may smile with his or her lips closed, stay away from social activities, or avoid making new friends in an effort to hide his or her teeth.

Fortunately, Dr. Derek Sanders and the team at Orthodontics Only can increase your child’s self esteem through an effective orthodontic treatment plan. Dr. Sanders has helped many Bak middle schoolers improve their smile and boost their levels of confidence.

Whether Dr. Sanders decides that your child can benefit from Invisalign or another type of braces, he or she will enjoy an attractive smile that encourages socialization and participation in extracurricular activities at Bak. Here are more details on Invisalign and metal braces, the two most popular types of braces offered at Orthodontics Only.


Invisalign, which straightens teeth through customized aligners that are made of comfortable, smooth, and virtually invisible plastic, has been a popular option for Bak middle schoolers. Invisalign allows 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Bak to improve their smile in a less noticeable way than metal braces. In addition, since Invisalign aligners can be removed, they allow Bak students to participate in virtually any extracurricular activity.

Metal Braces

Today, brackets or metal braces are 30% smaller and more comfortable than they were in the past. At Orthodontics Only, Dr. Sanders only uses metal braces that were manufactured at United States facilities that are held to the highest quality control standards. He has personally visited these facilities to ensure that each and every patient receives the safest possible treatment.
