Confidence can lead to a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life for your Kinloch Park middle schooler. One of the easiest ways to help your child boost his levels of confidence and self-esteem is to take him or her to a quality orthodontist. By making an appointment with Dr. Derek Sanders at Orthodontics Only, you will jumpstart your middle schooler’s journey to straight teeth, an attractive smile, and greater confidence.

Once your child completes an orthodontic treatment plan at Orthodontics Only, you will notice that he or she will smile more often, enjoy participating in sports and extracurricular activities and engage in social activities whenever possible. In addition, your Kinloch Park student will have a more positive mindset and succeed in and out of school.

Here at Orthodontics Only, we are pleased to offer a variety of orthodontics solutions to sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. Metal braces and Invisalign are two popular options that Dr. Sanders will likely consider to fix your child’s crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, or any other condition he or she may have. Here are a few details on metal braces and Invisalign:

Metal Braces

Metal braces are traditional braces that are also known as brackets. Although they have caused discomfort in patients in the past, they have substantially improved and are more comfortable now than they were years ago. Dr. Sanders makes is a priority to use the highest quality metal braces by only investing in brackets that were manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility in Southern California.


Invisalign is an appealing option for middle school students because it uses aligner trays that are clear, removable, and virtually unnoticeable to correct flawed teeth. Since Invisalign can be removed, Kinloch Park students who participate in a sport or play a musical instrument should have no issues.
