Adolescent Treatment

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment for adolescents is designed to correct a broad range of orthodontic problems. Braces are placed on the upper and lower teeth so that tooth discrepancies, jaw dysfunction, or malocclusions (bad bites) can be corrected. The goal of comprehensive orthodontic treatment is to provide the patient with a functional and stable bite; resulting in an overall beautiful smile!

After braces are removed, the retention phase begins, during which the new teeth positions are stabilized. Treatment time varies from patient to patient, depending on the severity of the orthodontic problem. Treatment time typically lasts 18-24 months.
