Braces are Ideal for Teens

It is a time of quick growth and change for them, which means it’s easier to shape their smile and bite giving them the “Perfect Smile”.

Why do Teens Need Braces?

Braces can solve a number of oral health issues, including:

  • Overly crowded and crooked teeth

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Overbite (where the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth)

  • Open bite (where some teeth cannot properly touch each other)

  • Underbite (where the lower teeth stick out ahead of the upper teeth)

  • Crossbite (where both the lower and upper teeth are misaligned)

The Benefits of Braces for Teens

It’s not just about the way your child’s teeth look. Having a good smile also has several health benefits, such as:

Easier to Clean

Teeth are easier to clean and therefore less likely to get cavities or decay

Fixing Bad bites

Bad bites can create unnecessary pressure on certain teeth – this can lead to chipped teeth or sore jaw muscles

Straighter Teeth

Straighter teeth contribute to more clear speech
