Orthodontics For Teens

Orthdontic Treatment For Teenagers

At Armbrecht & Wierenga Orthodontics we realize that every teen is different. So when it’s time for braces, we will find the type of treatment that will get them the most functional, best-looking, most efficient result possible. Some Teens will need expanders, braces and rubber-bands, while others will use Invisalign.

Some will just need a retainer. At AWO we treat each teen uniquely and individually; there is no “one-size-fits-all” in Orthodontics. If your teen had treatment with us as a Junior, we may find that there's minimal remaining work to be done to finish off their perfect smile. If you weren't able to have your child in for treatment as a Junior, don't worry!

While teen treatment in a single phase can take more time, we have options to pursue when it comes to achieving that million-dollar smile!

Single phase treatment can involve traditional brackets and wires, expanders, cosmetic brackets and wires, or clear aligners such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect. The method of single phase treatment depends on your needs and any preferences you may have for treatment. At Armbrecht Orthodontics, our goal is to meet your needs and desires while also achieving the highest quality results.
