Orthodontics for Teenagers

Adolescence: a key period in orthodontics

Adolescence is an excellent moment to get orthodontic treatment. At this stage, all adult teeth have erupted and the jaws are well developed. It is thus a good time to begin orthodontic treatment that aims to correct the alignment of teeth or dental malocclusion.

At Groupe dentaire API, we are aware that some adolescent patients may be embarrassed by the idea of wearing orthodontic appliances. That is why we offer the latest available technology that combine effectiveness and discreetness!

Why Begin Treatment During Adolescence?

As we have mentioned, adolescence is an ideal period to undergo orthodontic treatment notably because adult teeth are well developed at this stage. Nonetheless, jaws of teenagers still can potentially grow, which is useful when the alignment of teeth or jaws needs to be corrected.

A majority of orthodontics’ clientele undergo treatment between the ages of 11 and 18 years old. However, let it be known that it is never too late to consult an orthodontist. In this field, the saying “better late than never” applies!
