Orthodontic treatment for Adolescent

Orthodontic treatment at this age is what usually comes to parents’ mind when they think of orthodontic treatment. At this age, all permanent teeth are usually erupted and there is still growth potential of the jaws. Orthodontic treatments provided at this time focus on the alignment of the permanent teeth in harmony with the jaws and improvement of smile.

Orthodontic treatment for Children

American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child’s first visit to an orthodontist takes place at the age of 7. At this age, your child usually has first permanent molars and permanent front teeth erupted and early detection of orthodontic problems is possible. Orthodontic treatments, if required, provided at this time (Phase 1) focus on guiding the eruption of permanent teeth and the growth of the jaws. The need for a comprehensive orthodontic treatment (Phase 2) is usually assessed after Phase 1 treatment is completed.

Orthodontic treatment for Adults

Teeth can be moved at any age as long as the teeth and gums are healthy.

More and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to achieve perfect smiles thanks to the latest advancements in orthodontic treatment. Adult patients’ perception of orthodontic treatment has changed considerably over the recent years as clear (clear braces) or invisible (clear aligners, inside braces) options have become widely used.
