ORTHODONTICS FOR TEENS

  • More than half of orthodontic patients are teenagers.  At this stage of development most of their permanent teeth have already erupted into place.

  • Any problems with the alignment of teeth, issues with their bite, as well as discrepancies in jaw relationships are readily detectable at this time

  • At this sensitive age, having teeth that are crooked, gapped, crowded, or protruding can have a negative impact on their self-image as well as their self-esteem.

  • Thanks to advances in modern orthodontics, today’s image conscious teens can choose from a wide selection of braces that are far less bulky, much less noticeable, and more comfortable than ever before.
