Why are braces important for my child?
While braces are effective for older teens and even adults, the junior high years are generally the best time for orthodontic treatment. Your child has most of their adult teeth, but their jaw and head are still growing. The guidance of an orthodontist can make sure your child develops a healthy, beautiful smile.
