Improving Teenage Smiles
For a lot of patients, the teenage years are a great time to start orthodontic treatment. At this point, the majority of the permanent teeth have erupted and Dr. Scramstad can get a clear picture of issues, such as spacing or crowding. Since teens are still growing and have high metabolisms, we can harness their growth spurts to shift the teeth and jaws into place more efficiently. The outcome? Dramatic, long-lasting results!
