Adolescence is the most common time for patients to commence orthodontic treatment.
This is a great time to get started with treatment as all permanent teeth have emerged and patients are experiencing growth and change toward the adult bite.
Adolescent treatment generally involves braces or functional appliances.
If you are still at school and worried that braces will look uncool, dorky and hurt – DON’T BE! Today through the continual advancements in the field of orthodontics, treatment is more refined and the materials used are stronger and less intrusive. Braces no longer look like ‘train tracks’ running across teeth. Many forms of treatment are virtually invisible and no one will even know you are wearing them.
