Does your teen hide their teeth when they’re smiling?
Orthodontics for teens can include traditional braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign Teen® to address and treat bite issues.
Many parents don’t know that early assessment (7-8 years old) can make orthodontic care simpler and far less invasive. That’s because treatment can begin before growth is complete and permanent teeth move in.
Your teeth may have moved over time, and you may experience dental problems such as excess wear and tear on the teeth leading to decay or frequent chipping or jaw pain.
Are you experiencing headaches, jaw & facial pain, clenching/grinding?
Maybe it’s time for a new assessment for your nighttime retainer or a jaw splint for your TMJ/TMD.

Clear aligners are designed to discreetly straighten and improve the function of adult’s and children’s smiles.
Clear aligners can address and treat all the same bite issues that normal braces can correct.
Traditional metal braces are a popular choice for orthodontic treatment.
Modern advancements in materials and technology have enabled the brackets to be smaller with a low profile and rounded, smooth edges for optimal comfort.
