Treatment Goals Become Different

By the time your child reaches his or her teenage years, all of the permanent teeth have come in (or are very close to doing so). While the goals of early treatment are usually to maintain space, regain space, or eliminate detrimental habits, teenagers are now ready for full treatment, where the goals are more comprehensive in nature.

The primary aim is now to address the chief complaints of the patient. Full treatment also includes the objectives of optimal function, stability, and aesthetics. The results sought and obtained from this type of treatment should last a lifetime if properly maintained.

We’ll Set You Straight

As is the case with adults, most types of malocclusions in teens can be treated with metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign. Regardless of which option you choose in the end, both the duration of treatment and its results should be the same.

Schedule a complimentary consultation with Adirondack Orthodontics today, and we can discuss all treatment options with you before helping you decide on the right one.
