Adolescent Treatment

Choosing orthodontic care during adolescence, typically between ages 11 and 15, is pivotal at Harmony Orthodontics. Aligned with the eruption of permanent teeth, this socially accepted period ensures optimal oral health. Adolescents often commence treatment together, fostering normalization of orthodontic care.

Heightened awareness of dental issues during adolescence prompts early intervention. Patients eagerly embrace braces or orthodontic treatments, recognizing the rarity of self-correction. Harmony Orthodontics offers Suresmile technology, enabling Tweens and Teens to complete treatment 25-40% faster with minimal discomfort, ensuring precision and efficiency.

Guided by experienced orthodontists, including Dr. Mathieson, our practice excels in identifying and addressing prevalent orthodontic issues in the teenage age range. Teens with developed bone and jaw structures may seamlessly transition from Phase I treatment to advanced procedures.

Beyond aesthetics, untreated dental problems can impact overall health. Harmony Orthodontics recommends a complimentary consultation with Dr. Mathieson for signs like early tooth loss or abnormal teeth alignment. Early intervention guarantees optimal benefits, contributing to both oral health and aesthetic satisfaction. Our focus is on a seamless and rewarding orthodontic journey for adolescents and teens.
