Adolescent Treatment

Orthodontic problems don’t improve with age and can become harder to treat as growth reaches completion. It’s easier to address many orthodontic problems during adolescence because the body is still growing rapidly at this time. This is the most common age for getting braces, and our teen patients have many treatment options depending on their specific needs and desired appearance during treatment. The average duration of teen treatment is usually between one and two years, but it depends on the complexity of the existing problems, which requires a thorough assessment.

For teenagers who love creativity and vibrant colors, we offer modern braces with a wide range of color options!

We also provide cosmetic braces or Invisalign clear aligners for those who prefer a more discreet treatment.

In our office, modern orthodontic treatment typically involves fewer extractions, eliminates the need for headgear, and has shorter treatment times.

The best time to get braces is after the last baby teeth have fallen out and all the 12-year molars have erupted.

Clear aligners are an excellent choice for responsible teen patients who are fully committed to wearing them full-time. However, less compliant patients may prefer cosmetic braces. Clear aligners may not be suitable for more complex cases.
