Orthodontic Treatment for Teens
The most common age to undergo orthodontics is the teenage years. By this time, patients have all of their permanent teeth and jaw growth is mostly completed. At this age, teens are also more likely to comply with the details of treatment, such as remembering to brush and floss after eating or keeping track of aligner trays.
During your teen’s first appointment at our Great Neck orthodontic office, Dr. Kalimian will perform a thorough clinical exam to determine if he or she is a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. He will go over what treatment options are available and discuss what options would be best to achieve ideal results.
Good Compliance Equals Good Results
The most important part of your teen’s treatment is your teen! He or she will have to commit to avoiding certain crunchy or chewy foods, keep up with brushing and flossing, and wearing all appliances as directed. This will not only help your teen achieve a beautiful smile, but it will ensure that treatment time stays on track.
