Most parents choose to seek adolescent orthodontic treatment for their children around the age of 12 because this is when the majority of teeth have erupted. A bad bite, crooked teeth, and gaps in this phase rarely correct themselves without professional help. Children are more accepting of wearing braces at this age because it is likely that other children are also getting them.

Clear or Metal Braces

There is also the option of using Invisalign Teen® if your child prefers to undergo a more discreet treatment. Children around this age also have the greatest chance of experiencing a shortened treatment time and lessened discomfort due to their high metabolism.
