Once most of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, crooked teeth, gaps, and bad bites can easily be detected. These kinds of problems will hardly correct themselves. Before treatment, our trusted and qualified staff makes sure to thoroughly examine your teen’s mouth and take X-rays to further evaluate the problem with the doctor. We will discuss various options for your teenager with you, so that you can choose what plan is best for you and your loved one. We will also discuss the time frame of the treatment and the cost. We want to be sure you feel comfortable with the cost. Most insurance companies cover all or some part of it, we are happy to work with them.
Another benefit of orthodontic treatment is that many children in this age range undergo orthodontic treatment. They enjoy wearing braces because they see their friends wearing them too. But besides fitting in with their friends, children at this age will have a more difficult time brushing their teeth if they do not line up correctly and this can lead to more cavities as well as decay.
Getting the smile that will last the rest of their lives can happen and the results will not only be straight teeth, but also an overall healthier mouth. We are here ready to help, please contact us at (281) 482-2640 (Friendswood) or (409) 943-5767 (Texas City)
