Most orthodontic patients are adolescents. This is the ideal time to deal with orthodontic problem, as the permanent teeth are fully erupted. As the jaw still may require further growth, this can also help in the process of correcting the bite.
Teenagers' teeth tend to move more easily than adults, for a more efficient treatment.
Orthodontic treatments that align the teeth, correct the bite, and improve the appearance are an important confidence-booster for adolescents at this important stage of life.
