Teenagers Orthodontics

Are teens in need of orthodontic examination?

Teenage years are period of tremendous physical, emotional, and mental developments. At My Smile Orthodontics, we understand that how you look can impact how you feel, especially for teens. We’ve seen first hand how transforming a smile can reward a teen with a boost in self-confidence, a happier demeanor, and improved social interactions with friends and classmates. Give your teen a gift that will last forever: a beautiful smile.

What happens during adolescence?

Body structures and tooth eruption experience growth spurts during puberty. Girls begin the adolescent phase at approximately 10 years of age and have maximal growth at 12 years of age. Boys enter the adolescent phase at 12 years of age and have their growth spurt at 14 years of age so at this age ,teens have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.

When is the optimal time to take an action?

By 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment. 

What can be done to make it more delicate?

We understand that braces may seem daunting to some teens but during this period ,they are very often able to be convinced to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them, too, and want to fit in. Luckily, we have a variety of different colour braces, styles and materials to make the experience fashionable, and comfortable as possible.  Najirad believes that orthodontic treatment for teens does not have to mean metal braces. Most of our patients choose more aesthetic treatment options, like Invisalign® Teen or clear braces and finish treatment in 18 months or less.  

We know how busy teenagers are with sports, band practice and life in general so we offer after school appointments and accelerated treatment options to fit their individual smiles and busty teen lifestyles.
