Many families wait to get braces for their kids until they are teenagers. This is because as a teen, teeth become less malleable, making any orthodontic problems become more urgent.
Early intervention is best so, now is the time to act if your teenager has misaligned teeth or a bite issue. Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics provides the convenient and affordable orthodontic care you need.
Most teenagers have braces for about two years. At Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics, we prioritize your teen’s comfort during every single visit. We get to know your family on a personal level and do whatever we can to meet your treatment goals.
Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics offers traditional metal braces for teens. Traditional metal braces are recommended to correct more serious orthodontic issues, and also may be used on a case-by-case basis for more minor corrections.
Many teens are worried about how braces will change their appearance or cause discomfort. Our Albuquerque orthodontists have years of experience discussing these issues with young adults and kids, encouraging them to be excited about this life change.
If you think your teenager needs braces, it’s a good idea to get started sooner rather than later. Contact us today to schedule an easy, 30 minute consultation with one of our pediatric orthodontists!
