Orthodontics for Teenagers

The most common age group for orthodontics is teenagers. Most of them have all their permanent teeth and a more mature jaw. Today's braces are less noticeable than ever and won’t interfere with the active lifestyle that teenagers enjoy. Treatment may last one to three years and may include a combination of these treatment options and appliances.

  • Braces, which consist of tiny bonded brackets, full bands and archwires that gently move teeth into position.
  • A retainer holds teeth in their corrected positions until they are stabilized.
  • Extractions (removing teeth) makes room for crowded teeth and may be needed for any phase of treatment

Before starting orthodontic treatment; models, bite registration, photos and x-rays will be taken. These will be used to help Brent J. Porter, D.D.S., your Santa Cruz Pediatric Dentist, to show how our patient’s teeth and jaws fit together and give record of their profile, face, and teeth before treatment.

For more information please contact the office of Brent J. Porter D.D.S., Santa Cruz Children’s Dentist, at (831) 459-9802
