Braces and Invisalign for Teens in New Jersey

For many people, having orthodontic work done during their teenage years is the perfect time. Teenagers and pre-teens have an advantage when it comes to achieving a great smile because they are also experiencing some level of jaw growth and facial changes associated with puberty. At this age, adult teeth are in place, and oral development is at the right stage. Typically, between the ages of 12 and 16, your teenager is ready for braces.

Urban Orthodontics is the leading provider of orthodontic treatments, from traditional braces to Invisalign, for teenagers in New Jersey. Our skilled team ensures a positive experience, so your son or daughter can achieve the smile they desire and receive the care they deserve.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic option for many teens. It is a clear, retainer-like orthodontic appliance that gradually straightens teeth and corrects orthodontic issues. It’s practically invisible, hence the name, allowing your teen to receive the care they need without drawing attention to it.

Our orthodontist specializes in creating beautiful smiles to build and promote amazing self-confidence, health, and self-esteem. Our treatment types include hidden lingual braces and Invisalign®.

Addressing your son or daughter’s smile at the right time can be crucial for their long-term self-confidence. While some teens may prefer not to get traditional braces, it’s important that we conduct a proper exam so we can create a customized treatment plan that best addresses your child’s needs.
