In teenagers, the bones in the jaw have hardened, especially in the palate. As a result, there is less flexibility in manipulating the jaw compared to younger children. Therefore, the ‘Teen’ brace treatment is approached differently, with fixed or removable options.
Lingual braces or traditional train tracks are the fixed options, but the preference is for Invisalign Teen clear aligners.
After a thorough assessment, digital scans of the teeth, and a discussion of the issues and treatment options, a summary is provided for informed decision-making.
In this video, Dr Steffen Decker, gives an insight into the philosophy at the heart of our practice and all we do.
In the UK it is common to use a single period of treatment with braces to fix just about any orthodontic problem (age 12-18). For some people, this results in a beautiful, healthy smile, but it isn’t right for all patients. In many cases, the problems we need to correct are structural issues with the underlying bones and ligaments supporting the teeth, and correcting these problems is often difficult with braces alone. That’s why orthodontists have developed Two-Phase Treatment.
Two-Phase Treatment is an orthodontic technique that involves using two separate periods of orthodontic treatment: one during childhood and one during adolescence. This approach allows us to treat underlying bone structure issues during childhood, when the bones of the mouth are still growing and malleable, then treat more surface-level alignment issues during adolescence, once the adult teeth have grown in.
For patients that have had a phase 1 treatment, they may need a phase 2 treatment in teenage years once the structural issues have been resolved.
