Orthodontics for Teens

A Treatment Built Just for You.

The fastest treatment times are a result of beginning treatment at the appropriate time.

The early teenage years are typically the best time for orthodontic treatment. This is because the patient is still growing and tooth movement and bite correction can occur more efficiently. What people don’t realize is that growth in the jaw bones happen at a different time than the teeth and the bones of the rest of the body!

Another common misconception is that orthodontic treatment shouldn’t begin until all the permanent teeth have erupted. While this is true in most circumstances waiting for permanent teeth may hamper treatment progress when bite correction is needed at an earlier age. This is why having a plan in place for your child before they become a teenager is critical. Our Adventure Club guidance program is completely complimentary and we especially encourage you to schedule a consultation for your child and any other siblings today.

There are many different types of orthodontic treatment available for our teenage patients. Traditional braces, clear braces and Invisalign. Adventure Orthodontics is the only designated Invisalign Teen provider in Southeast Idaho! Treatment times vary on the severity of the case but average orthodontic treatment typically falls between 18 to 30 months.
