The teen years are a suitable time to begin orthodontic treatments. The bone in the jaw of a teenager is still moldable by moving teeth because it has not yet set in its shape. Gaps, crooked teeth, overcrowding of teeth and improper alignment of bites can all be corrected during the teenage years.
While no teenager looks forward to wearing braces for a year or two, there have been advances in orthodontic technology that gives more choices for orthodontic teeth straightening like metal vs ceramic braces and the choice of the color combination of the tiny rubber bands.
