Orthodontics For Teens
Our Okotoks orthodontic team offers a wide variety of treatment options to our patients that are targeted at the unique needs of teenagers and their developing smiles.
Happier, Healthier Smiles for Teens
By the age of 12, most or all of your permanent, adult teeth have erupted into their proper places. By this time, "bad bites," crooked teeth and gaps are all easily detectable by one of our orthodontic specialists. Since these kinds of issues very rarely correct themselves, the early and mid-teen years are an excellent time to undergo orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic treatment can have tremendous advantages for a teenager's self-confidence and self-image, but there's much more to it than that. A straighter, more even smile doesn't just look good, it has many oral health benefits as well.
Orthodontic treatment for teens at Foothills Orthodontics focuses on correcting bite functionality and comfort, improving teeth alignment, and improving aesthetics.
