Adolescent Treatment
 

adolsent.jpgBetween the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for adolescent orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By this time, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place. Children at this age are growing rapidly, and we can usually take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape the bite and teeth correctly. Orthodontic treatment is on a case by case basis, but we normally see adolescent treatment normally lasts between 18-24 months. 

Don't worry about wearing braces! Your friends are wearing them too!

For teens, at this point in their lives, most of their friends are beginning orthodontic treatment, so they are not alone in this. Many negative associations of braces are not present, so it is easier for them to be excited about treatment. Today's braces are smaller, more comfortable, more attractive and come in varioius styles and colors. We offer a wide selection of braces to meet the individual needs and desires of each of our patients. Please contact the practice today to schedule an exam.
