Teen Orthodontist in Syracuse, UT

There is a reason orthodontic treatment is often associated with the teenage years — it is an excellent time to begin orthodontic care. Teenagers begin to pay more attention to the way they look. Many problems with self-confidence begin during these ages because of crooked teeth. It’s very common for teenagers to have braces, so it’s easy for them to feel like they fit in. If early treatment was not recommended, most girls are ready for comprehensive orthodontic treatment between 11 and 13 years old, and boys are ready between 12 and 15 years old. Other benefits to correcting problems originating with orthodontic issues while in your teenage years include:

  • A shorter treatment time
  • Lower likelihood of needing a tooth extraction
  • A chance to accommodate any unerupted teeth too avoid overcrowding in the future
  • A confidence boost associated with restored facial symmetry and aesthetics as a result of positive jaw growth
  • Lowered likelihood of damaging protruding teeth over time
  • The ability to properly establish a correct and functional bite

Orthodontic treatment for teenagers typically includes braces. We offer both traditional metal braces and clear, tooth-colored braces for a more aesthetic look. Some older teens also qualify for clear aligner treatment, an alternative to using braces to straighten teeth. Dr. Coleman can also use other custom appliances, depending on the needs of each teen.

Your teen does not need to have a referral from a dentist to schedule an orthodontic consultation. Call our office and schedule a free consultation to receive a professional, customized treatment plan from Dr. Coleman.
