Orthodontics for Teens

A+ A- A Main Content

Being a teenager is difficult enough without misaligned or crooked teeth as an added challenge. Moreover, the American Association of Orthodontists encourages parents to consult an orthodontist when their child is 7 years old. This is the ideal age to help prevent further dental issues if any are present, and help provide a confident, bright smile for the long haul.

Orthodontic Treatment for Teenagers

There have been significant developments in the field of orthodontics. As a result, patients today understand the challenges presented by misaligned teeth and know how orthodontics can improve their confidence and way of life.

With the advancement in technology, teenagers have options to receive orthodontic care without disrupting their confidence. Our orthodontist has worked with many teenagers and answered many questions about the different techniques and treatments that would work best for this age group. Protect your precious teen from more serious dental issues in the future while ensuring they feel confident and satisfied with their chosen treatment option.

It is best to address dental misalignment and other issues early in adolescence since it can prevent more serious issues from developing. Reasons why orthodontics should be considered for your teenager:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Teeth spaced apart
  • A more beautiful and confident smile
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • TMJ symptoms
  • Issues will be harder to treat later

Traditionally, teenagers may have become discouraged by the noticeable orthodontic treatment options provided in the past. However, with more subtle treatment options available and the acceptance of good dental health, more teenagers anticipate the boost of self-confidence with orthodontic treatment. With modern orthodontic treatments, we can provide you with multiple options that fit your child's lifestyle without damaging their confidence.
