The teenage years are generally the best time to start orthodontic treatment. It’s precisely at this stage that we have all our adult teeth and our jaws are in full growth. It’s also often at this time that we may notice a discrepancy in the rate of growth of the upper and lower jaws. Active jawbone growth enhances treatment effectiveness and helps to shorten treatment time.
Several pleasant and effective treatment options are available. Cooperation during treatment remains one of the best keys to success at this age. Traditional or invisible braces, as well as evolutionary shells, can be used during adolescence.
