Phase 2 Orthodontics: Healthy Smiles for Teenagers
Gaps in teeth, "bad bites", crowding of teeth and other problems rarely correct themselves. Our orthodontic specialists can treat these issues in the early to mid teen years.
By age 12, most (or all) of the permanent teeth have usually erupted and are in place. If problems with bite are impacting your teen's speech, chewing or other aspects of life, this can be a great time to start resolving them.
Orthodontic treatment can have positive impacts for a teenager's self-confidence and self-image, but there's much more to it than that. A straighter and more even smile supports long-term oral health.
Orthodontic treatment for teens at myORTHODONTIST focuses on correcting bite functionality and comfort, shifting teeth alignment and changing aesthetics.
