Braces for Teens

BracesForTeensThe teenage years (between the ages of 12 and 16) are the most common time for orthodontic treatment. That's because by age 12, most, if not all, of your permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, so crooked teeth, gaps and "bad bites" can easily be detected. These problems rarely correct themselves, so this is when the majority of people seek orthodontic treatment.

Although many teens today wear braces, some teens may feel uncomfortable getting braces. Fortunately, at Theresa Shaver Orthodontics, we offer the smaller, less noticeable Damon Braces and virtually invisible Damon Clear Braces. These high-tech braces are very different from the traditional "metal mouth" braces. They are not only more attractive, Damon Braces move teeth more efficiently, so you can get a sensational smile in less time, with less discomfort and better results than traditional metal braces.

It's important to remember, that most people aren't born with an attractive smile or a proper bite. Consequently, wearing braces is usually inevitable if you want to have a beautiful, healthy smile. Having a great smile will not only help you look better and feel better about yourself, studies have shown it can impact your personal and professional success throughout your lifetime.
