adolecent treatments.

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reason. By 12 years old, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place. Crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems usually do not correct themselves, so this is an ideal time to start most orthodontic treatments. This is also a good time for orthodontic treatment because many negative associations of braces are not present. Children in this age range are usually easily convinced to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them too, and they want to fit in.


Besides the benefits of fitting in with their friends, children at this age are growing rapidly and orthodontists can usually take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape their bite and teeth correctly. Children at this age also have high metabolisms, which helps shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.


We offer Metal braces, clear braces, lingual braces for teens.  In addition Invisalign Teen® is a great treatment option for some adolescents.
