Typically, Phase II/comprehensive treatment involves placing braces on the patient once his or her permanent teeth have erupted. The braces straighten the permanent teeth and finish correctly aligning the patient’s jaw. By age 12, most, if not all, permanent teeth have erupted.  This is when crooked teeth, gaps and misaligned bites can easily be diagnosed. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment for their children.

For many teenagers, wearing braces is a part of life – an important part of life because a beautiful and healthy smile can boost one’s self-confidence.

Children at this age are growing rapidly.  Orthodontists can usually take advantage of this growth spurt to modify growth of the face, teeth and jaws.   Pre-teens and teenagers have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.
