It is important to take a teen’s growth into consideration. Growth spurts allow for great changes when combined with orthodontic treatment at the right time. This can happen at different times for different children, and we will work with you to maximize this benefit. Typically, we start orthodontic treatment when the growth spurt begins if all of the teeth are erupting well. If you are new to the area or recently moved, we are happy to help guide you through this process.
