7Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. Between the ages of 11-14, your child may already have most of their permanent teeth erupted. At this age, the permanent second molars are erupting or have erupted, which we believe allows for the optimal time to begin orthodontic treatment.

Each patient's orthodontic condition requires a treatment plan based on a specialized diagnosis of the case.  Treatment time varies depending on age, patient compliance, and the severity of the condition.  In addition to metal and clear ceramic braces, we also offer Invisalign Teen® treatment!  Many teens find the removable clear aligners to be very comfortable and easier to keep clean throughout the orthodontic treatment process.  We are happy to discuss the various treatment options during the initial consultation.

Starting the orthodontic treatment process during the early adolescent years can help ensure a braces-free smile for senior pictures, prom, and graduation!  Give us a call to schedule a consultation and learn more about how braces or Invisalign Teen aligners can help you or your teen achieve a beautiful, healthy smile!
