Our office is glad to offer teens a way to get beautiful, straight smiles. Our orthodontic treatments are made to fit their needs and lifestyle. We understand that teens need to balance their treatment with their personal, social and school lives. If you are bringing your child in for a visit, Dr. George M. Ash can make sure they get the treatment they need and give them a wide range of options for their orthodontic care. See Orthodontic Associates of Port Huron and find out more about options for your teen.
One of the most common ways to treat orthodontic issues is with braces. Braces straighten the teeth through a series of metal wires and brackets. The brackets are fixed to the front of the teeth, and the wire is threaded through them. Over time, these wires and brackets gradually shift and move the teeth in the proper positions. In order to keep your child’s teeth on track, they will need to visit with our orthodontist regularly for appointments. During these visits, our orthodontist will tighten and adjust the braces to make sure they are shifting the teeth correctly. To plan your child’s first braces appointment in Port Huron, Michigan, or to schedule a follow-up visit, call our office at 810-985-9567.
