At Utah Orthodontic Care, it’s our goal to provide a solid base for great oral healthcare for the lifetime of our patients, no matter what their age. We accomplish this by educating our patients on the importance of good dental health, as well as through the use of various orthodontic treatments to improve the health and appearance of their smile. We proudly offer a selection of braces, from traditional to ceramic, and even offer more discreet, convenient treatment such as Invisalign clear aligners.
When to See an Orthodontist
Though it is recommended that your child see an orthodontist for the first time by age seven, don’t panic if you’ve missed the mark on this. While it is best to see an orthodontist at an earlier age in order to diagnose potential issues before they grow out of hand, orthodontic treatment is most commonly started on patients between the ages of 12 and 16. By this age, all permanent teeth have typically come in, jaw bone structure has formed, and issues such as crowding, gaps, and mismatched bites should be more obvious.
This also tends to be the age range where your teen begins to grow more self-aware of their appearance and how they are perceived by others. While crooked teeth are certainly not considered a bad character trait by any means, it can often leave a teen feeling self-conscious about their smile. On top of that, crooked teeth are also more difficult to properly brush and floss, which could lead to further dental trouble down the road. These are just a few of the reasons you may want to consider orthodontic treatment for your teen.
