Usually by the early teenage years most individuals have lost most, if not all, of their baby teeth and are ready for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Most teenage treatments are done with braces, either clear ceramic braces or traditional metal braces.
Orthodontic treatment can play a vital role in improving your child’s appearance and self- confidence. However, orthodontics is more than just giving your teen a great smile. Orthodontic treatment places the teeth and jaws in their proper position, providing the teeth an ideal environment to function better, facilitate brushing and maintenance, and reduces improper wear of the teeth over a lifetime.
