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 overall, 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!
