There are many different types of Orthodontic treatment available for all of our patients no matter their age.

Orthodontics for Teens

For many teenagers, wearing braces is a part of life – an important part of life because a beautiful and healthy smile can boost one’s self-confidence.

Children at this age are growing rapidly, and orthodontists can usually take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape the bite and teeth correctly. Pre-teens and teenagers have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.

How does Orthodontic Treatment in Teens Help?

  • Developing self-esteem and confidence in their appearance

  • Straightening and aligning permanent teeth

  • Regulating arch width for a perfect smile

  • Preventing depression, anxiety and discomfort in social situations

  • Improving speech problems caused by alignment or bite issues

  • Preventing trauma or damage to protruding front teeth

  • Improvement of proper chewing and digestion of food

There is a wide range of orthodontics treatment options available for teens patients. In developing a customized treatment plan there will be different treatment options available to our teenage patients – including Invisalign, traditional braces and clear braces.
