Adolescent 12 to 18 Years
Having a beautiful smile is so important when children reach their adolescent and teen years. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we are proud to have helped many children in the Milton, Alpharetta, Cumming and surrounding areas care for their teeth throughout their childhood and teen years. We specialize in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics to ensure that our young patients have a healthy, straight smile as they gain momentum toward adulthood.
Braces for Teens
One of the most common ages that children are undergoing orthodontic treatment using braces is in the teen years. Although many children may begin their orthodontic treatments during their elementary school years, they still may need braces as a teen. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we offer many different options for teen braces, including Damon, Invisalign Teen and metal braces. Since many teens are self-conscious of their appearance, we have options that are less visible and easier to conceal.
Dental Care for Kids in Middle School and High School
Often middle school or even high school is when treatment for kids with orthodontic issues begins or is completed. There are several considerations when choosing the right treatments and braces for kids in these age groups. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, our resident orthodontist Dr. Patel will consult with both the child and parents on the best options available for the orthodontic treatment. This includes shorter treatment options, invisible or clear braces and budget concerns. He will take into consideration the young patient’s sport participation and other factors that can affect what orthodontic treatment will be best for the child.
