Why Begin Treatment in the Teenage Years?
For many patients, the teenage years are the ideal time to start treatment or begin Phase Two of their treatment plan. Why? Well, most teenagers have all of their permanent teeth so we’re able to get a clear picture of how their teeth and jaws have developed. Any issues with spacing, crowding or alignment are easy to identify at this point. Additionally, teens are still growing and their metabolisms are higher, which lets us more easily and quickly manipulate their teeth and jaws for outstanding results.
We create truly personalized treatment plans that are tailored to your teenager’s unique smile. At your child’s consultation, Dr. Okuda or Dr. Noorda will evaluate their bite, develop a diagnosis, and chat with you about their lifestyle and needs in order to help you choose the best option. We want your teenager to love their treatment just as much as they’ll love their results. Whether they opt for Damon™ braces or Invisalign ® Teen, the outcome will be a healthy, confident smile.
