Treatment for teens
This is the age most people associate with having orthodontic treatment and unlike a few years ago most teenagers now see the benefits of having great smiles and are very motivated to seek treatment.
We certainly enjoy the transformation in all of our patients, but in this group it is especially rewarding to see confidence levels soar.
Certainly treatment in this group can be aided by growth and so it is probably the most efficient time to have orthodontics. Also, as it is an important time for social development and interaction, a great smile can only increase self -confidence.
We highly encourage a visit to your dentist prior to considering orthodontic treatment, as it is extremely important that all teeth are healthy and that regular brushing is maintaining healthy gums. Poor oral care can delay the start of orthodontic treatment.
