Teenager Orthodontics in Dee Why

Most of us aren’t born with a perfect smile. Wearing braces may, consequently, be inevitable to have the look you want and a healthy bite.

Orthodontic treatment is usually sought out between the ages of 12 and 16. By the time you’re 12, most or all of your adult teeth have erupted. It’s easy to evaluate if you have issues with crooked teeth, gaps or misaligned bites. Such problems can rarely correct themselves and require orthodontics.

Ensuring Your Teen’s Oral Health

The condition of your teeth is usually established by the time you’re 12 or 13. In such an age of rapid growth, it’s the proper time to sort out orthodontic issues. At Wavescape Orthodontics, treatment for teenagers involves the alignment of permanent teeth functionally and aesthetically. Nearly all possible problems can be treated, often with fixed appliances being the most effective and efficient option to straighten teeth. Your teen can also select a variety of colours to personalise their braces.

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Teens

In most cases, we would use either traditional braces or clear aligners for our teen patients. We offer both metal and ceramic braces. Both options provide reliable outcomes. Ceramic braces are more discreet, making them popular with teens. We also offer a variety of clear sequential plastic aligner options, including Invisalign and Spark Clear Aligners, all of which are highly effective. Because the clear aligners are removable, it’s important teens wear them for 22 hours a day.

For teens with jaw issues, we may recommend a functional dental appliance, which can help improve the jaw position.
