TEEN TREATMENT

THE BENEFITS OF TEEN TREATMENT

It is quite common that comprehensive orthodontic treatment is provided to teenagers. This is one of the best times to do full treatment because all adult teeth are usually erupted, and, the bone metabolism during these years typically responds quite predictably to orthodontic forces. In addition, negative long term effects of bad bites and misalignment can be prevented early enough and the aesthetic and functional benefits of treatment can be enjoyed for longer time in life. City Orthodontics is a family practice serving a large number of teens. We use the latest technologies to make teenager treatment a positive experience. Teens are equally good candidates for braces and clear aligners. We help our teen patients to take great care of the braces and aligners at home while our doctors give their smile direct supervision at their regular visits.

The benefits of orthodontic treatment in teen patients can be enjoyed for a longer time in life as opposed to doing treatment later. These benefits can include:

  • Prevention of abnormal excessive tooth wear
  • Easier oral hygiene
  • Better aesthetics
  • Increased self esteem and confidence
  • Prevention of other future possible oral health problems

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY

At City Orthodontics in Toronto, Ontario, we care about our patients comfort and appearance in addition to their oral health, which is why we continuously invest in new technology. The new techniques and appliances we use not only greatly reduce discomfort levels but also decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. In addition, these new options have been made to be almost or completely unnoticeable. These options may include metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign (clear aligners) that can be worn overnight to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues.

All patients are different and have their own needs when it comes to orthodontic care. During the initial examination, we will be able to determine a customized treatment for those needs. During your first visit you will have an initial examination where we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.

INVISALIGN – THE INVISIBLE TREATMENT

If you want to pursue a beautiful smile without a mouthful of metal, then Invisalign could be a possible option for you. This practically invisible form of treatment allows patients to achieve the perfect smile without the worry of being seen with braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth, and has added features to ensure optimal outcomes for your treatment. This treatment is a great solution for adults who are self conscious of pursuing an orthodontic treatment. If you have any questions or want to see if you qualify for Invisalign at our Toronto orthodontic practice, feel free to contact us or schedule a consultation today!
