Teen Orthodontic Treatment with Clear Aligners

Start Your Teen’s Confident Smile Journey with Urban Smile

Teen-Orthodontics

Adolescent years are the most common time for a teenager to have orthodontic treatment. Typically between the ages of 12 and 16, most of the permanent teeth will be in place but still relatively new with the bone still soft, making them easy to move and shift.

There’s more to orthodontic treatment than straight teeth. Starting teen orthodontic treatment early on can relieve your teen of jaw pain, prevent tooth damage, raise self-esteem, reduce risks of dental problems, and improve oral health.

Teenagers can benefit from orthodontic treatment because it’s likely they’re surrounded by peers who wear orthodontic equipment too. It helps them feel more secure and confident knowing it’s a common experience.

From start to finish, Urban Smile is here to help your teen’s journey for brighter and more confident smiles ahead. In your first initial consultation, our Oral Health Therapists and team of experienced Melbourne orthodontists can easily detect spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues, as well as determine if bone and jaw structures are formed enough to begin orthodontic treatment.

We understand if orthodontic treatments can raise concerns and questions. That’s why Urban Smile offers a comprehensive overview of orthodontic treatment options and individualised consultations with our team of dental professionals so you can get the perfect balance of care and expert advice that you need at your convenience.

Orthodontic treatment with clear aligners are a popular choice for teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional braces.

They’re a conveniently discreet way to straighten your teeth, are virtually invisible, and can be removed for eating, brushing, and special occasions.
