Typically girls between the ages of 10-14 and boys between the ages of 12-16 are growing rapidly due to puberty. Most of their permanent teeth are present by now, and these growing adolescents can often benefit from orthodontic results that may not be possible once their face and jaws have completed their growth. Thus it is very important to have an orthodontist evaluate your teenager’s teeth and bite as soon as possible, especially if you have not done so at an earlier age. The success of your adolescent’s orthodontic treatment can depend on the amount of his/her remaining growth.
Come have Dr. Chun & Dr. Jelson evaluate your teenager’s teeth and bite to give him/her a healthy beautiful smile!
