Your teen will most likely be ready for braces. By this time, most of his or her permanent teeth have fully erupted. We offer a comprehensive variety of orthodontic options for teenagers to assist them in achieving a lifetime of confident, beautiful, and healthy smiles.
Teens are generally self-conscious about their appearance. Having crowded or spaced-out teeth might be keeping your child from feeling comfortable when speaking and smiling. Orthodontic treatment is important because a beautiful and healthy smile can boost one’s self-esteem. Braces have had a bad reputation in the past, but today’s modern braces are much smaller and more comfortable! Our office offers a variety of types and styles of braces for your teen. Some options include:
- Traditional Metal braces
- Clear (Ceramic) braces
- Invisalign Clear Aligners
The adolescent period is a great time to begin treatment since your child is growing and orthodontists can take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape the bite and teeth correctly. Teenagers have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of treatment compared to having braces during adulthood.
