The average age for adolescent treatment is between 11-13 years old. At Silver Smiles, we generally wait to begin braces until all of the permanent teeth have come in. Dr. Silver and Dr. Sturm work with both parents and teens to determine a treatment plan that will result in a beautiful and long-lasting smile.
Braces are certainly not boring at Silver Smiles!
We strive to make getting braces a fun and exciting experience for our patients. We constantly have contests and activities going on in the office and patients are encouraged to check our bulletin boards and social media pages to keep track of the fun.
We understand that braces may not be an ideal accessory for your teenager. Let’s be real. Teens are very conscientious of their appearance and braces are not always attractive. Thanks to advancements in technology, today’s teenagers have options when it comes to their orthodontic treatment.
