Orthodontics for Teens

twins SmilingThe teenage years are often the ideal time for orthodontic treatment. The bones have not finished growing and developing, so the teeth and jaws can be more easily moved into their ideal positions. Addressing orthodontic needs during these pivotal years has many benefits, including:

  • Reduced treatment time
  • Reduced need for tooth extraction
  • Preserving space for any unerupted teeth
  • Improved facial symmetry and aesthetics
  • Reduced damage from protruding teeth
  • Preservation and promotion of tooth health long-term

We understand that your teenager has a busy and active lifestyle and is involved in a wide range of activities, ranging from school and extracurricular activities to their social life, and we make every effort to accommodate their lifestyle and needs. There are a variety of treatment options to accommodate your teenager’s unique needs and desires, ranging from traditional orthodontics to clear aligner treatments. We will review all treatment options with you and your teenager during their initial consultation. Our highest priority is to provide your teenage with high-quality care that will improve their smile and oral health while also meeting the demands of their lifestyle and improving their self-confidence.
