If your child hasn’t seen an orthodontist by the time they reach their teenage years, it’s probably time to give us a call. In children and teens, jawbones are still developing, and the timely diagnosis of any problems is essential to non-surgical, less invasive procedures.
Even if your teen’s smile looks beautiful—and of course it does!—there could be underlying issues that will cause them trouble later in life. Patients with straighter teeth are less likely to get gum disease as adults, less likely to experience problems with chewing or excessive wear, and less likely to need fillings and other dental work.
At Dr. Buttram’s practice, we’re skilled at reading our patients, and we know that children and teens require different kinds of experiences. We prioritize respect and we listen carefully to our patients to hear their concerns and their desires. And when they’re waiting for their appointment, the game room is a welcome distraction for nervous patients.
Give us a call for a consultation, and make sure your teenager is set up for smile success in the future.
