In adolescents, we begin evaluating crooked teeth, over/under bites, and jaw issues, for long-term oral health. Your teen is still growing and now is the perfect time to begin treatment.
The duration of treatment is shorter for teenagers because their teeth are more easily movable. On the other hand, treatment for adults might take longer to achieve adjustments due to the closure of growth plates.
We understand that it can be stressful to decide when to begin orthodontic treatment for your teen. That is why we provide you with all the information you need upfront and complimentary exams for new patients.
Today there are more options for adolescent orthodontic treatment than ever before. Your teen may be reluctant to add braces and we can help put them at ease.
Choose the orthodontic treatment that best suits your adolescent's lifestyle and priorities.
