More About Orthodontics For Teens

If your child is between the ages of 12 and 16, this is a great time for the Star Orthodontics team to identify potential issues associated with bite, jaw alignment, gaps and overcrowding.

Your child may also become more aware of their appearance, which is why most teenagers tend to prefer to get treatment while some of their friends are also getting treatment. Addressing your child’s smile at the right time can be crucial to their self-confidence.

The team at Star Orthodontics often looks at the following areas for teens:

  • Gaps in Teeth
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Protruding Teeth
  • Jaw Alignment
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
While some teens would prefer not to get traditional braces, it’s important that we do a proper exam so we can come up with a customized treatment plan that will best address the needs of your child. Don’t worry – we have different orthodontic options to get your teens smiling!
