Adolescent Treatment

Your Teen Deserves The Smile Of Their Dreams!

Dr. Martinez and the Martinez Orthodontics team work tirelessly to provide the highest quality of orthodontic care to patients of all ages. Our Cincinnati orthodontics practice is committed to ensuring our teenage patients are as comfortable as possible while they develop a healthy, long-lasting smile. During ages 11-15, the majority of adolescents will have their full set of permanent teeth and subsequent jaw and teeth problems. Because orthodontic problems only become more difficult to treat with age, it’s best to intervene as early as possible.

The Best Time To Perfect Your Teeth

Orthodontic issues are easiest to treat during the adolescent years, because our treatments work in tandem with the teenage growth spurt and elevated metabolism rate. By incorporating corrective appliances, such as metal braces or Invisalign, we can quickly improve the appearance and function of the jaw, face and teeth. Misaligned jaws, bites, and crooked teeth only become morecostly and painful to treat as time goes on, which is adolescence is one of the popular times to begin treatment.

Of course, teenagers spend the majority of their time in school, where their classmates and peers are also beginning their treatment. When children see their friends with braces, it makes them excited to start their journey to a beautiful smile as well. They want to fit in with everyone else, and go through this positive experience with those around them. Parents can use this extra incentive to get their kids excited for their orthodontist appointments.

Orthodontic Treatment Options For Teens

When your teen comes in for their consultation, Dr. Martinez will use state-of-the-art technology to develop a personalized treatment plan. Our goal is to create the most effective and efficient plan possible, while ensuring that patients receive treatment that fits their lifestyle. Adolescents might require other orthodontic appliances before getting their braces on, and after they come off. We also offer a variety of braces including:

Throughout the entire process, we will provide your teen with valuable oral health tips and a list of foods to avoid during treatment. After treatment, they can expect a retainer, to keep their teeth in place long after their braces come off. Martinez Orthodontics strives to provide a fun and comfortable environment, while teaching patients great habits that will last a lifetime.
