VARIETY OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS
Orthodontic Treatment for Teens
The 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. As a result, 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.
Types of Treatment for Teens
There are a variety of orthodontic treatment options available today for teenagers including Damon System (self-ligating) Braces, Invisalign Teen and “traditional” metal braces.
