Adolescent & Teenagers 12 to 18 Years

Many changes occur in a child’s life and physical appearance from ages 12-18, including their smile. By age 12, most of their permanent teeth have arrived. Suddenly, kids are more aware than ever how important their teeth are to their appearance. Caring for the smiles of adolescents and teens is our job at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville. We want to ensure they have healthy, beautiful smiles during this exciting and challenging time of their life.

The pre-teen and teen years are fast-paced, but it is important to make time for dental and orthodontic care. Checkups and cleanings can help maintain healthy teeth, especially for teens that may be less than vigilant in performing their home oral hygiene. Our dental team can help our young patients by performing thorough cleanings and stressing the importance of personal dental care. When teens begin to see how important their teeth are to their appearance, dental health becomes a higher priority. We can help them learn excellent oral care habits and offer dental and orthodontic treatments to improve the health and appearance of their smile.

Orthodontics for Adolescents & Teens

For misaligned teeth or bite problems, adolescent and teenage years are the best time for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. As the body goes through a growth spurt, coinciding orthodontic treatment is effective, since all the permanent teeth, except wisdom teeth, are in place. Our orthodontist, Dr. Patel, can determine if your child requires orthodontic treatment and will discuss the options available at our practice, including:

  • Traditional braces
  • Clear braces (tooth-colored)
  • Invisalign Teen
  • Retainers

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
