For Adolescents

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reason. By age 12, most, if not all, of the permanent teeth are in place and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites are highly visible. We can often take advantage of the remaining growth to make the necessary orthodontic corrections and create an exceptional smile for your child. One of the benefits of orthodontics with Delta Orthodontic Group and Dr. Higgins is the use of his invention, the Xbow®, which removes the need for headgear and reduces the need for permanent tooth extractions!

Since many of their friends are in braces at the same time, most adolescents LOVE being part of the braces crowd. After school visits at Delta Orthodontic Group can be lots of fun when kids see their friends from school, church or sports teams!

Please call our office to schedule your no-cost orthodontic evaluation for your child. It’s not necessary to wait until all the baby teeth have been lost; in fact there are many advantages to you and your child when we are able to evaluate and plan the best time for treatment while the baby teeth are still present.
