You may be asking yourself if it is time for your adolescent in Saddle Brook NJ to begin orthodontic treatment. The most common time to begin orthodontic treatment is in adolescence. By this time, most of the permanent teeth are in and the facial bones are growing to their adult size. For many patients, adolescence is an excellent time to have orthodontic treatment. Most, if not all, of the braces can be placed right from the start, and with excellent patient cooperation, treatment can be quick and efficient.
Adolescence is the time when children develop their sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Having a beautiful healthy smile helps young people feel good about themselves and improves their self-confidence.
At Milestone Orthodontics, we strive to make the orthodontic experience a positive one. Dr. Milestone and his team provide all of their patients with individual attention and try to make them feel special. Schedule a consultation today!
