Adolescent Orthodontic Treatment
At JB Orthodontics in Norwalk and Stamford CT, Dr. John Bibko will perform a thorough exam to determine the best orthodontic treatment plan for your teen.
Braces For Teens
Braces during the teenage years have traditionally been the “accepted” time for most orthodontic treatment. Undoubtedly, it is easier to treat many orthodontic problems at this time since the jaws are growing rapidly and teeth are erupting. There is no set timetable for treatment, thus a visit to an orthodontist is crucial to determine the best time for orthodontics.
Once orthodontics is started, treatment may last from 12-30 months, depending on the severity of the problem. After treatment is completed, an orthodontic retainer will be necessary to ensure that your newly crafted smile will be maintained. With advances in technology, there are different treatment and retainer options available to achieve and maintain your great smile. Dr. Bibko and his team will offer you the best that contemporary orthodontics can provide.
