Orthodontics for Teens

Orthodontics for Teens in Temple, TX

Teenagers! Those years have such special meaning for parents (and for orthodontists). This is a time of great enjoyment as we see our young patients blossoming into young adults!

For our teens, we are attempting to place the teeth in their final adult position within the facial boundaries to maximize the cosmetic and functional results of treatment. Important decisions such as the removal of teeth vs. expansion of the mouth or orthopedic correction vs. surgery are being made. This is the time when patient cooperation becomes very important.

By this time, most permanent teeth are present in the mouth, and very close to their final non-corrected positions. This typically is the last chance that orthodontists have to influence growth and development. In some cases, especially in our young ladies, growth may have already ceased. This time becomes crucial to our final planning. Typical “braces” may be used in many of these cases.

We are pleased to help our teenage patients achieve straight, beautiful smiles with our orthodontic services designed to fit their active lifestyles. We are aware that teenagers are involved with a wide variety of activities, including school, friends, dating, sports, and other extracurricular activities, and we can help you arrive at the orthodontic solution that fits your individualized needs. Whether you are interested in traditional braces or a more aesthetic, discreet option, we are committed to providing you with the high-quality, personalized orthodontic treatment you need for a straighter, healthier, and more attractive smile.

There are several benefits to addressing orthodontic needs during the teen years rather than putting off treatment until later. These benefits often include:

  • Shortened treatment time
  • Reduced need for tooth extraction
  • The ability to preserve space for any unerupted teeth and provide room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Restored facial symmetry and aesthetics by stimulating jaw growth
  • Preserved tooth health and minimized threat of damage to protruding teeth.


Our Orthodontist is pleased to offer orthodontic treatment for teenagers at our comfortable, friendly office. We invite you to contact our team today to learn more about our many services and to schedule your next appointment with our experienced Orthodontist. We are eager to accommodate your individual needs and help you find the solution that is best suited to your smile. Let us help your teen achieve a straight, beautiful smile with an orthodontic treatment that fits their lifestyle.
