Time to Brace your Face!
Orthodontic problems don't improve with time. In fact, it's often better to treat many orthodontic problems during the teen years, rather than wait until adulthood. Once growth is complete, the bones of the face and jaw are fully developed. As a result, some orthodontic conditions become far more challenging to correct.
Dr. Ellis uses the most advanced tools to have you wearing braces for as short a duration as possible. Dr. Ellis knows that kids are very busy and works to minimize the amount of time spent wearing braces. Most of her patients wear braces around 18 months.
Dr. Ellis offers Invisalign Teen for her younger patients who would like have orthodontic treatment with aligners.
