Adolescent Treatment

The best time to start orthodontic treatment is in the adolescent years.  At this time, the baby teeth have fallen out and the adult teeth are making their way into the mouth making this an ideal time to fix dental problems.

Treatment length

Adolescent treatment usually takes 1.5 – 2 years with more complex problems taking 2 – 2.5 years. The length of treatment depends on several factors such as severity of the problem, patient cooperation and consistency in keeping appointments.

Benefits of adolescent treatment

Here at Central Orthodontics, Dr. Leo Lou and his skilled team proudly provide kids and teens in and around Calgary with quality care to overcome common orthodontic problems. Dr. Leo Lou believes the adolescent time is a great time to consider orthodontic treatment as the body is still growing so growth problems of the jaws can be addressed.

Today, many teenagers are getting braces.  Your transition into braces will be smooth as someone in your class would likely have braces already!
