Teen Treatment

Teen TreatmentTeens have more choices than ever before in creating a beautiful smile. From fully custom to traditional braces to “invisible” braces, the number of effective treatment options is growing all the time.

Braces do more than just improve your smile.

They also help your teeth and jaws fit together better, helping you to not only have a beautiful smile, but also a healthy smile and bite for your entire life. Wearing braces doesn’t have to be a big deal, and most of the time, you won’t even notice that they are there.

How long will I have to wear braces?

The amount of time it takes to treat your smile with braces depends on three key factors:

  • Early treatment – Early treatment allows Dr. Engstrom to monitor the growth of the jaw and recommend further orthodontic treatment if it becomes necessary. The rate and amount of facial growth and development as well as the eruption of the permanent teeth influence when to begin treatment.
  • What needs correction – The amount of treatment needed in order to correct a problem will determine how long the process takes. Teens have high metabolisms and are still growing which can help shorten overall treatment time. Treatment time can vary depending on how quickly your body responds and how much work is needed to give you the show-stopping smile you expect.
  • YOU! – Your willingness to use the appliances Dr. Engstrom gives you plays a major role in the length of time it takes to complete your treatment. Always remember to take care of your braces and appliances; this truly will help make your treatment shorter!
