Why Start Orthodontic Treatment in the Teenage Years?
It probably seems like every teenager you encounter has braces or clear aligners. That’s because between the ages of 11 and 15 is the ideal time to kick off orthodontic treatment for a lot of patients. At this point, most of the permanent teeth have erupted and issues like crowding, gaps, and improper bites are very evident. Since teenagers are still growing, Dr. VanderWall can take advantage of their growth supports to more efficiently correct the bite and straighten the teeth for lasting results.
Our Teen Braces and Clear Aligner Options
Those stereotypical, bulky metal braces that used to be a teenage rite of passage are a thing of the past! Today’s dental braces, even metal ones, are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. At VanderWall Orthodontics, Dr. Clay VanderWall offers a range of teen-friendly orthodontic treatment options. Kids can choose metal braces and pair them with colorful elastics to show off their personality. Or, to keep their treatment under wraps, we offer clear braces and InBrace® behind-the-teeth braces. If your teen isn’t into the idea of braces at all, Dr. VanderWall is also a leading provider of 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners and Invislaign Teen in Raleigh, Durham and Cary, NC.
