A large portion of orthodontic patients are teenagers. The teen years are a great time for orthodontic treatment because treatment in adolescence is often shorter and more responsive than it is later in life. The jaw and mouth are still quite malleable in the teen years, so it allows our dentist to guide the development of the mouth before problems get too severe.
