Teeth Braces for Teens in Lake Nona

There are several good reasons why adolescence is the optimal time for orthodontic treatment, though occasionally even earlier intervention is called for. There is no set timetable for every child, but generally, by the age of 11-13, the “baby” teeth have all been lost and the permanent ones have come in. This is the time when we can go to work correcting the problems that cause a bad bite, improper tooth spacing or poor alignment. Carlyle Orthodontics offers braces for teens in Lake Nona, St. Cloud, and other parts of Orlando. With our dedication to providing orthodontic treatment in a friendly, relaxed environment, we guarantee that we’ll treat your teen like family. We also utilize the latest techniques and appliances available to meet your teen’s unique dental needs. More importantly, we’re in it for the long run. We will do as many as follow-ups as needed, plus we’ll encourage your teen to comply with our instructions all throughout the treatment period. This way, we can achieve the best results in the shortest possible time.

Why Your Teen Need Professional Orthodontic Help

As you can imagine, orthodontic problems don’t improve with age – they simply become harder to treat. It’s easier to treat many orthodontic problems during adolescence because the body is still growing rapidly at this time. With that in mind, we can create an improved appearance and function in a short period of time. During later years, when the bones of the face and jaw are fully developed, it becomes more difficult (and costly) to treat.

How Orthodontia Improves Confidence

Lastly, there is a social element to getting orthodontic treatment in adolescence. If you need braces, usually you’re not alone! It’s very likely that you’ll see some of your classmates with braces. When it’s done, you’ll have a smile that you can really be proud of and benefits that will last a lifetime. With all these benefits, getting your teenager to undergo orthodontic treatment is a smart idea. If you worry about the price, we have a range of affordable braces for teens in Lake Nona. During the consultation, our orthodontists will assess your teen’s current teeth and jaw alignment. From there, we’ll help you choose the treatment that can best address  your teen’s oral needs, as well as suit your budget.
