Adolescents & Teenagers 12 to 18 Years
The adolescent and teenage years of a child’s life are some of the most important, exciting, and sometimes challenging. Most children will have most if not all of their permanent adult teeth by age 12, and this is often when they may become self-conscious about their appearance. With many new developments in their lives, sometimes oral hygiene may not be their top priority. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry we are here to help your child develop and maintain great oral care habits so that they will be able to maintain the health of their teeth for the rest of their lives. We offer orthodontic treatment which can give teen’s their dream smile! Our combined care will ensure that our adolescents and teenagers have a healthy, beautiful smile as they gain momentum toward adulthood!
Orthodontics for Adolescents & Teens
Orthodontics in this age group is particularly effective as full treatment can be timed to coincide with the natural “growth-spurt”. This special timing of treatment can be very effective for certain types of bite correction. Also, in this age group all permanent teeth become present in the mouth so everything can be fully aligned at this stage. Smile options for Adolescents & Teens:
- Clear Braces
