Many patients receive orthodontic treatment during their teenage years. Here at Metro West Orthodontics & Periodontics, we are dedicated to helping our adolescent patients achieve straight, beautiful smiles with orthodontic treatment tailored to fit their dynamic lifestyles. We offer a number of treatment options, from traditional braces to Invisalign® clear aligners, and will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

Addressing orthodontic needs during the teen years offers numerous advantages, including:

  • Shortened Treatment Time: Intervention in the teenage years when teeth and jaws are easier to move often results in a reduced treatment duration.
  • Reduced Need for Tooth Extraction: Proper alignment can prevent the need for removing teeth in the future as a result of misalignment, tooth damage or problems such as decay.
  • Preservation of Space for Unerupted Teeth: Ensuring room for new teeth can prevent overcrowding.
  • Improved Facial Symmetry: Stimulating jaw growth can enhance facial aesthetics.
  • Protection of Tooth Health: Correcting protruding teeth reduces the risk of damage. Properly aligned teeth are also easier to keep clean and healthy with regular brushing and flossing.
