For millions of teens, braces are a right of passage – a way to achieve straight and attractive teeth so they can smile with confidence throughout their lives. At Brooke Orthodontics, Dr. Brooke loves catering to his teen patients, helping them come to terms with the prospect of wearing braces and offering guidance as they choose an orthodontic treatment that will provide them with the healthy and beautiful smile they deserve.
THE BENEFITS OF GETTING BRACES AS A TEEN
If braces are needed, it’s beneficial to get them during the teen years, when any problems that may contribute to spacing issues, improper alignment or a bad bite can be easily addressed. The reality is that these problems don’t improve with age – they simply become more severe and more difficult to treat. As the body is still growing in adolescence, Dr. Brooke is able to create a healthier smile in a very short period of time. Plus, the teen years are an extremely common time to get braces, which means your child won’t feel alone throughout the process.
In addition, getting braces as a teen will improve your child’s appearance and allow him or her to build strong self-esteem, ultimately experiencing a lifetime of confidence about their smile.

A relatively new treatment, the Damon system can straighten your teen’s teeth much more quickly – and with less pain – than traditional braces.
