Orthodontics for Teenagers

A misconception of orthodontics: “let’s wait till later!”

If you recognise that there is a problem, then please don’t delay – take advantage of our FREE specialist orthodontic consultation at our Takapuna and Epsom branches, and book your child in today for a check-up.

Research shows that a smile is one of the first things we notice about people – so, having healthy, straight teeth, in the correct position is one of the best things we can do for our children!

The teenage years are some of the best years…This applies to orthodontic treatment also!

As adolescent patients are growing rapidly, their bone and facial structures are both malleable and dynamically changing during this period.

Therefore, treatment undertaken at this stage aims to take advantage of growth – giving us the best results of correcting the majority of problems with teeth alignment and bite correction.

Treatment may involve orthodontic plates, an expander, a functional appliance, Invisalign, braces, or any combination of these.
