Comprehensive orthodontic treatment for teenagers aims to address a wide range of dental and orthodontic issues, ensuring that the teenager achieves a healthy, functional bite, and aesthetically pleasing smile. Here's what comprehensive orthodontic treatment for teenagers can do:

1. Correction of Misaligned Teeth

One of the primary goals of comprehensive orthodontic treatment is to correct misaligned or crooked teeth. This involves gently and safely straightening and positioning teeth to achieve proper alignment and spacing.

What is it?

Correcting bite problems enhances the functional aspects of the mouth, including biting, chewing, and speaking. It helps ensure that the teeth come together properly for efficient and comfortable function.

In some cases, comprehensive treatment can address jaw alignment and growth issues. This includes guiding the development of the jaws to create better facial balance and harmony.

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment for teenagers can involve various orthodontic appliances, such as conventional metal braces, ceramic braces, clear aligners (like Invisalign), and other specialized appliances. Dr Jess will recommend the choice of treatment method and duration will depend on the teenager's specific orthodontic needs and goals.

It's essential for parents to consult with an orthodontist who specializes in treating teenagers to create a treatment plan that addresses their child's unique needs, providing them with a healthy, functional, and attractive smile for years to come.

3. Improved Function
5. Jaw Alignment

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment is tailored to each teenager's unique orthodontic needs. Orthodontists use a combination of braces, clear aligners, and other orthodontic appliances to create a personalized treatment plan.

9. Treatment Duration

Comprehensive treatment typically lasts for an extended period, often ranging from 18 to 24 months depending on the complexity of the case and the chosen treatment method.

10. Retention

After the active phase of treatment, teenagers will need to wear retainers to maintain the results and prevent teeth from shifting back to their original positions.

7. Increased Self-Confidence

Achieving a straighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile can boost a teenager's self-esteem and confidence, which can have positive effects on their social and emotional well-being.

2. Alignment of the Bite

Comprehensive treatment addresses bite issues, such as overbites (front teeth grinding heavily), overjet (upper front teeth protruding over lower teeth) underbites (lower teeth protrude in front of upper teeth), crossbites (upper teeth crossed inside of lower teeth), and open bites (teeth do not meet when the mouth is closed).

4. Enhanced Aesthetics

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment aims to improve the appearance of the smile. By aligning teeth and addressing spacing and crowding issues, it helps teenagers achieve a more attractive and confident smile.

6. Enhanced Oral Health

Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain. Comprehensive treatment can reduce the risk of dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth wear caused by misalignment.
