Orthodontics & braces for teens

In the teen years, around the ages of 10 to 14, most permanent teeth have erupted and problematic orthodontic conditions become apparent.

During these years, the jaw bones are still developing, making them the most susceptible to growth modification. Beginning orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign® in the early teen years can minimize treatment length and support your child in building a strong self-esteem that serves them for a lifetime!

Dr. Abramowitz and our talented team are proud to use advanced technologies to make for a more comfortable, efficient treatment process. We also offer Dental Monitoring for virtual, at-home check-in appointments after your teen’s first visit.

How do I know if my teen needs orthodontics?

These signs may indicate a need for teen braces or Invisalign:

  • Lack of confidence when smiling or hiding smile regularly
  • Jaws or teeth are disproportionate to the rest of the face
  • Difficulty biting or chewing
  • Digestive issues caused by inadequate chewing
  • Early, late or irregular loss of baby teeth
  • Crooked, crowded or gapped teeth
  • Grinding or clenching the teeth
  • Thumb sucking / finger sucking habits in childhood
  • Jaw pain or facial pain
  • Jaw shifting, popping or clicking
  • Persistent mouth breathing
