Malocclusion like crooked teeth or a misaligned bite can negatively affect your teen’s confidence and social skills. If your teenager avoids smiling because of crooked teeth, help your teen by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Wilson and Dr. Cowley. At Orthodontics, Inc., we have various orthodontic treatments to help teens reach healthy, straight, attractive smiles. Our orthodontists provide both traditional braces and cosmetic orthodontic solutions. If you choose Invisalign Teen®, your teen can straighten their teeth without marring the appearance of their smile. For self-conscious teens, this is a great alternative to the traditional metal brackets and wires. We also provide Damon® Smile self-ligating braces, which straighten teeth more quickly and comfortably than traditional braces. For teens with busy schedules, self-ligating braces are a great choice because they require less office visits.

Teen orthodontics in Farmington, New Mexico, are very beneficial to the oral health of the patient. When your teen’s malocclusion issues are treated early, we can:

• Shorten treatment time
• Provide room for crowded, erupting teeth
• Restore the face’s symmetry and aesthetics by stimulating jaw growth
• Preserve the health of the teeth
• Minimize the threat of damage to protruding teeth
• Reduce the need for tooth extraction
• Preserve space for un-erupted teeth
