Comprehensive or Phase Two orthodontic treatment will generally begin after all the baby teeth fall out and permanent teeth come in, usually around age 12 or 13.
The adolescent years are the perfect time to seek orthodontic treatment because it is much easier to address many orthodontic issues when they are still growing. In addition, attaining a beautiful smile can have a great impact on your teen’s self-esteem and confidence.
In our practice, we have incorporated the latest technology for more precise, aesthetic, and efficient treatment. With self-ligating brackets, we can apply gentle force to move teeth and see the patient less often for adjustment appointments, so you and your teen can spend more time doing what you love.
