Orthodontic Treatment for Teens
The teenage years between 12 and 16 are the most common time for orthodontic treatment. This is because by age 12 most of the permanent teeth have erupted, and so crowding, spacing and bite problems can easily be detected. Unfortunately by this age, these problems rarely correct themselves.
Fortunately for today’s teens, Dr. WW Jonathan Park provides options that provide superior aesthetics and comfort. For those who like a splash of color, you can have fun choosing bands that match your mood, favorite athletic team or the season. For others who want a less noticeable look, our older teens can choose between our clear ceramic braces or Invisalign clear aligners. Choose the look that matches your lifestyle!
We know our teenagers are always on the go between school, sports and other activities. Please know that we always do our best to provide our busy teens with appointments, which best suit, their schedules.
