Two Phase and Adolescent Treatment

Adolescence is an ideal time to consider orthodontic treatment. Typically by this point in a child’s development, they have most, if not all, of their permanent teeth in place. It is also easy to view any potential problems like crooked teeth, gaps, and bite issues. In addition, most kids at this age do not have negative associations with braces. In fact, many of them see their friends and classmates wearing them at school and know they are not scary. At Orthodontics Exclusively, we encourage parents to bring their adolescent children in to correct problems with proper treatment from your local professional and experienced Los Banos, Merced, and Fresno orthodontists.

The Treatment Process For Adolescents

Dr. Lee R. Boese, Sr. and Dr. Lee R. Boese, Jr., along with the entire staff at Orthodontics Exclusively, provide quality treatment for every patient that walks through our doors. We know that straight teeth and a healthy smile can increase self-confidence and decrease the risk of cavities, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. Your first visit to our office will consist of a thorough examination and X-rays to help us create a customized treatment plan just for you. Depending on the situation, we may recommend common orthodontic appliances such as:

  • Metal Braces – Now smaller and lighter than ever, metal braces are often a rite of passage for most adolescents.
  • Invisalign – Orthodontics Exclusively is proud to offer the Invisalign system to our adolescent patients.
  • Other Orthodontic Appliances – Depending on the situation, we may recommend other orthodontic appliances to help create straight teeth and a healthy bite. This may range from small devices to external headgear.
