Advanced Orthodontic Care For Teens In the Alpharetta & Cumming Area
The early teenaged years are the most common time for adolescents to undergo orthodontic treatment. By the age of 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and have settled into place. It is also around this time that various maloclussions start to become present, including crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites.
Unfortunately these orthodontic problems will most likely not correct themselves, so it may be necessary for you teen to start wearing braces. At Awbrey Orthodontics we provide our patients with a wide variety of braces, including many more aesthetic options, including:
- SmartClip braces
- Clarity clear braces
- Incognito braces – hidden behind the teeth
Since many teenagers start to wear braces in middle school and high school, a lot of the negative associations of braces are not present. Often, children of this age group feel more convinced to wear braces as they see that their friends are as well.
Benefits Of Early Interceptive Treatment
Children at this age are growing rapidly, which means that an orthodontist can take advantage of growth spurts and help to properly shape the teeth and bite correctly. Teens generally see shorter treatment times in comparison to adults wearing braces, which also leads to less discomfort.
