Treatment for Adolescents

There are many good reasons why adolescence is the ideal time for orthodontic treatment, generally by the age of 11-13 the deciduous (baby) teeth have all been lost, and the permanent ones have mostly come in. During adolescence we can work on correcting the problems that cause a bad bite, poor tooth positioning or poor alignment.

Orthodontic problems don’t improve with age – they simply become harder to treat. It’s easier to treat many orthodontic problems during adolescence because the body is still growing rapidly. Whether we use braces or Invisalign we can create an improved appearance and function in a short period of time. In later years, when the bones of the face and jaw have finished growing, many conditions become more difficult (and expensive) to treat.

There’s also the social element of getting orthodontic treatment during these years. If you need braces, you’re not alone! Chances are you’ll see some of your school friends in our office, and you may even make new friends by going through the process together. When you are finished, you’ll have a fantastic smile that will last a lifetime.
