The most common time to begin orthodontic treatment is in adolescence. By this time, most of the permanent teeth are in and the facial bones are growing to their adult size. For many patients, adolescence is an excellent time to have orthodontic treatment. Most, if not all of the braces can be placed right from the start, and with excellent patient cooperation, treatment can be quick and efficient.
Adolescence is the time when children develop their sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Having a beautiful healthy smile helps young people feel good about themselves and improves their self-confidence.
We strive to make the orthodontic experience a positive one. We provide all our patients with individual attention and try to make them feel special.
