Orthodontics for Teens

It’s common for teens to worry about their appearance, and the idea of braces might not appeal to them right away. However, because they are still growing, orthodontic treatment is easier now than it would be later in life. With modern self-ligating braces and clear aligners, orthodontic treatment for teens at Koch Orthodontics in Lawrenceville & Loganville, GA is now much better than a few years ago – both, in appearance as well as results.

Symptoms of Orthodontic Problems in Teens

Teens won’t always tell you if they have a problem, especially if they fear becoming a “metal mouth” as a result. Help them understand that a few months of orthodontic treatment today will mean a confident smile for years to come!

Your teenager should get an orthodontic examination if they have:
  • Crooked or overlapping teeth
  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Missing or crowded teeth
  • Noticeable overbite or underbite
  • Difficulty chewing, biting and speaking
  • Gaps between top and bottom teeth while biting
