Adolescent Treatment

A healthy smile is a confident smile and we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to smile with confidence. Orthodontic treatment from Dr. Bedont will provide your pre-teen or teenager with the opportunity to feel good about themselves and smile with confidence.

Orthodontics is more than straightening crooked teeth. An overbite, an underbite, a dysfunctional smile, and a small or protruding chin all can be corrected with orthodontic treatment. Proper tooth and jaw alignment are critical to achieving long-term oral health.

We feel that treatment at this time, particularly during the adolescent growth spurt, provides us with the greatest opportunity to achieve the best result. Adolescent youth are searching for their identity and their way in life, so treating at this time also allows us to provide encouragement and guidance as they mature.
