Adolescent or teen orthodontics is the most common time our patients begin to see an orthodontist. Between the ages of 11 and 15, most, if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted. Many children in this age range start their treatment around the same time as their friends so it is more socially accepted. Also, adolescents and teens are more aware at this age of crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites because their appearance is so important. Because they are more conscious of these bite issues, most patients are excited to get braces or other treatments started. These problems rarely correct themselves on their own and prompt most parents to seek recommendations for orthodontic treatment.
At Advanced Orthodontics, we offer Suresmile which allows Tweens and Teens to complete treatment 25-40% faster and with minimal discomfort. We all know that teenagers can’t wait to get braces on and are even more anxious to finish with their new smile. With Suresmile, not only do adolescents complete treatment faster, the robotic technology ensures an outstanding result.
