Our philosophy when straightening teeth in growing teenagers is first identifying why their teeth are misaligned, and then building treatment centred around fixing their primary issue. We do not remove healthy teeth as this camouflages more significant problems with their facial growth. Removing healthy teeth doesn't treat the cause of their dental crowding, and can worsen their primary issue. Dental crowding is a result of incomplete facial growth, and not to do with a teenager's teeth. To correct the symptom of dental crowding, we need to identify and treat their facial growth issue. Once we have produced ideal growth of your teenagers's jaw and face, there will be enough space in their mouth to make straightening their teeth a quicker and more straightforward process.
