Is your teen embarrassed of their smile because of crooked or crowded teeth? Crooked teeth can have serious effects on your teen’s self-confidence and social skills. To provide your teen with a straight, attractive smile, look to Dr. Joseph Wilson. At Yuma Orthodontics, Inc., we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments for teens. Our orthodontist provides traditional braces as well as cosmetic solutions like Invisalign Teen®. If your teen is hesitant to wear metal brackets and wires, they can discretely straighten their smile. At our office, we also offer Damon® Smile self-ligating braces, which can align teeth more quickly and with more comfort than traditional braces. Self-ligating braces are a great choice for busy teens, as they require less office visits.

There are a number of benefits of teen orthodontics in Yuma, Arizona. When treating malocclusion issues early, we can:

• Shorten treatment time
• Provide room for crowded, erupting teeth
• Restore symmetry and aesthetics to the face by stimulating jaw growth
• Preserve the health of the teeth
• Minimize the risk of damage to protruding teeth
• Reduce the need for tooth extraction
• Conserve space for un-erupted teeth
