Orthodontic Services for Adolescents

As children transition from early childhood to their teen years, adolescent orthodontics focuses on applying braces for the prevention and/or correction of irregularities of the jaws, teeth and bite.

Orthodontics corrects poor bite mechanics and improves self-confidence. Orthodontic treatment not only creates a beautiful smile but also improves bad bites (malocclusion) that may adversely affect other areas of a teenager’s life. Malocclusion occurs as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment and can affect the way people smile, chew, clean their teeth or feel about themselves. The following problems caused by malocclusion, or bad bite, may be helped with proper orthodontic treatment:

  • Misaligned & crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Misaligned or incorrect jaw position
  • Periodontal problems (gum disease)
