Orthodontics for Teens

©-Paramount-Dental-Sydney-Orthodontics-for-Teens.jpg

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Teeth that are crooked and don’t fit together correctly are harder to keep clean and are at a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally a misaligned jaw can add extra stress on the chewing muscles causing headaches as well as neck, shoulder and back pain. The appearance of teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also be distressing to children and teens.

Orthodontic problems are usually obvious in children by the age of 7 but treatments don’t usually begin until the teenaged years. Early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing or make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
