Orthodontic treatment has become something of a rite of passage for adolescents between the ages of 11 to 15, and for good reason. By 12, most or all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, so crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites are easy to detect. Since these problems rarely ever correct themselves, it's best to catch them right when they become apparent, making adolescence an ideal time for braces.

Another reason the teenage years are well suited for braces is that many negative associations with braces are not present. It's very common for children this age to undergo orthodontic treatment, so the social proof of seeing their friends in braces makes many teenage patients much more accepting of treatment - they want to fit in, after all!

Aside from the social climate, children this age are growing rapidly. As orthodontists, we can usually take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape the bite and teeth correctly. Finally, children this age have high metabolisms, which can help shorten treatment time overall and reduce any pain or discomfort felt during treatment.
