The majority of our patients begin treatment during their adolescent and teen years (between the ages of 10 and 14). By the age of 12, most of the permanent teeth have erupted. This is an ideal time to treat problems such as crowded teeth, spaces between the teeth, and bite problems. During the teen years, patients are going through growth and developmental changes that allow us to move the teeth and correct a bite with minimal discomfort and shorter treatment time.
Most teens look forward to getting their braces. At Cavanagh Orthodontics we provide our patients with options to ensure that their experience with braces is one that they will fondly remember. We offer metal braces that our patients can add colors to, as well as aesthetic alternatives like clear ceramic braces and Invisalign® Teen.
We are here to make your teen’s orthodontic experience as comfortable and successful as possible. Call us today and learn how we can help.
