Adolescence is often the optimal time to correct orthodontic problems and achieve excellent results because adolescents are still growing. Orthodontic treatment timed accordingly with the growth period can optimize the treatment result.

Orthodontic treatment during adolescence allows a proper bite to be established to facilitate the health of teeth and supporting structures. Straight teeth are easier to clean, contribute to healthy teeth and gums, and help to improve the long term health of the teeth. Correction of orthodontic problems during adolescence may help minimize the need for more extensive treatment later.
