Signs That Your Teen May Need Treatment

If your teen is experiencing any of the following symptoms, we advise that you bring them in for a complimentary, no-risk, no-obligation orthodontic consultation!

The best way to know whether your child will benefit from treatment is by visiting our experienced orthodontist, Dr. Matsumoto, for a complimentary consultation!

The Importance of Teen Orthodontics

Treating the teeth and bite while the bones are still developing can enable a shorter treatment period that eliminates the need for future or more severe treatment! When we begin treatment while the jaws and teeth are still developing, the process can be more efficient and more comfortable for your teen. 

Misaligned teeth are also difficult to brush, because the surfaces of some teeth may overlap other teeth if crowding is present. When the teeth can’t be cleaned properly, bacteria can start to build up, causing the teeth to turn yellow, bad breath, gum disease or tooth decay. 

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just about the appearance of the smile. Functionality is just as important. Braces, Brius or Invisalign can transform your teen’s bite functionality, oral hygiene, self confidence, and overall quality of life. 

The price of braces for teens will depend on a few factors, including the complexity of the case and length of treatment!
