Adolescent 12-18 years Milton, GA

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.

If you have a teen or adolescent that needs dental care or orthodontic treatment in the Alpharetta, Milton, Cumming or surrounding area, contact Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry today to schedule an appointment. Our specialty dentists Dr. Chong and Dr. Patel can help ensure your child gets the best dental care during their teen years for a beautiful, healthy smile.

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.
