Orthodontics for Teens

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.

This is also a good time for orthodontic treatment because many negative associations of braces are not present. Many children in this age range undergo orthodontic treatment, and children are very often able to be convinced to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them, too, and want to fit in.

Besides the benefits of fitting in with their friends, children at this age have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.

Contact our office for an initial FREE examination, and we will be able to determine the best time for the treatment and outline: the treatment plan, the treatment duration expected, and the approximate cost for the treatment.

My experience with Miller Orthodontic Specialists was nothing short of amazing. The office is very... clean and welcoming.The staff are all extremely kind and knowledgeable about what they are doing. They always asked me how I was doing, made me smile and laugh when I was there. They let me know what they were going to do before they did it which was comforting to know.I came to them with my concerns about my teeth and what I wanted. The treatment plan I had was to have braces for 24 months and they explained it all thoroughly to me every step of the way. Any questions I had were answered and my concerns were addressed in a professional manner.The payment plan worked perfectly for me. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my treatment and highly recommend going to see them for a consult if you want a beautiful smile! 😁 Thank you to everyone at Miller Orthodontic Specialists for being so kind to me and helping me get the smile I've always wanted!! 💙 Especially Ashley for being super kind to me and going out of your way to connect and converse with me, making me feel welcomed and comfortable.read more

I had multiple orthodontic problems for years; cross bite, over bite, crowding, overlapping, you... name it. Over the course of two years, four months and three days, Dr. Miller and his team took outstanding care of me, explaining every step of the process, accommodating my busy schedule, and providing flexible financing. Now my teeth look and feel better than ever! At 33 years old, I'm one of the many examples of proof that it's never too late to have the smile you deserve.read more

My daughter started her journey with Dr. Miller in May of 2019. She had to do some adjustments... before we could start the actual process. Rosemary was very understanding and explained the whole process to her and I, and the whys for every step. She kept scheduling appointments to make sure that my daughter was doing what she needed to, before the process started. Finally, January of 2020, we got the braces put on. At the height of Covid and the shutdowns, and the restrictions of what we needed to do to complete this process, Dr. Miller's team worked with us every step of the way. They worked with us with scheduling appointments and rescheduling appointments and what we needed to do when she got there. They were amazing with communicating with me on what the next process was. Today, she got her braces removed. Her teeth and smile look absolutely amazing and I am blown away at the work they put in to make this happen. It wasn't always easy for my daughter when she had her wires changed, and adjusting to what foods she could or couldn't eat, but we did it. Not just her and I, but the amazing team of professionals at Miller Orthodontics. I will be forever grateful for what they were able to accomplish for my daughter. I recommend them to anyone who asks.read more
