Set up the foundation for a lifetime of improved oral health by having your teenager visit Dr. Igel or Dr. Chartrand for a complimentary orthodontic treatment consultation. Dr. Igel understands that a healthy smile plays a big role in any teenager’s confidence and self-image.
First and foremost, our objective is to straighten teeth, correct unstable and unhealthy bites, and eliminate crowding. We also improve facial asymmetries, guide any impacted teeth, and improve the function and health of your teenager’s teeth. Orthodontics can positively affect the airway and enhance breathing and prevent the need for extractions and impactions of permanent teeth. Phase 2 or adolescent treatment consists of orthodontic appliances (braces or Invisalign®) that idealize the position of the teeth in the jaws for proper function giving your teenager a long, happy and healthy smile!
The teen years are a great time to correct your child’s bite, since their jaws are still growing, and orthodontic treatment can be easier than if they wait until adulthood. By addressing alignment issues now, you can also help your teen avoid oral health issues later in life. Is it time to straighten your teen’s smile? If so, call Igel Orthodontics at (402) 330-1152 to meet with our orthodontists to learn more about teen orthodontics in Omaha, Nebraska.
