Everyone deserves a smile they feel great about. Often, the best way to achieve that smile is through adolescent orthodontic treatment. Adolescence presents a unique opportunity for orthodontic treatment, because we’re able to shift the alignment of the permanent teeth but can still take advantage of growth spurts and high metabolisms.
If you’re considering orthodontics for yourself or your teenager, our Denver orthodontists
would love to help.
Braces are so common for teenagers that they’ve almost become a rite of passage. As it turns out, there’s good reason for this. The teenage years are a unique opportunity for orthodontic treatment.
For one, it’s the first time that we can act on the adult teeth, which means the changes we make will be permanent. Furthermore, teenagers have high metabolisms and growth spurts, which we can take advantage of to speed up treatment.
Finally, there’s a social element: Because braces are so common, most teens are open to the idea of getting them. In fact, some teens want braces just to fit in with their friends!
While adolescence may be an ideal time for treatment, it may not always feel that way for the patient. That’s why we do everything we can to make adolescent treatment convenient for our patients. We work with patients individually to form a customized, personalized treatment plan, and we strive to make treatment fit into our patients’ lifestyles.
We’re happy to be flexible around busy high-school schedules, and we strive to make appointments outside of school hours whenever possible. We know that being a teenager is hard already – orthodontic treatment should be the easy part!
At our practice, we’re proud to offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to our patients, including teenagers. While metal braces are still the most popular treatment we offer, teens have a variety of options for how they straighten their teeth. Your orthodontist will work with you to help you choose the treatment that’s best for you:
