In addition to early treatment, we also provide orthodontic treatment to pre-teens and teens, most commonly between the ages of 11 and 15. By age 12, the majority of patients have gotten all of their adult teeth in, making it easy to detect any misalignments and growth issues.
If your teen is anxious about starting orthodontic treatment, you can assure them that now is an excellent time to get braces. The majority of patients that we have in treatment are teens, so your child will be in good company. For those who want a subtler treatment option, we offer Invisalign Teen clear aligners. Patients can remove Invisalign aligners to eat and clean their teeth, making it a convenient option. While some teens may not be good candidates for Invisalign, we can start by evaluating your child’s needs and determine the best treatment type.
