A Great Time to Kick Off Treatment
It probably seems like almost every teenager you come across is wearing braces or Invisalign® Teen. That’s because, for many patients, the teenage years are the ideal time to start orthodontic treatment. Most of the permanent teeth have erupted at this point and we can clearly identify problems with alignment or spacing. Since teens have high metabolisms (lucky!) and are still developing, we can take advantage of their growth spurts to more effectively manipulate the teeth and jaws for dramatic, lasting results.
