Comprehensive Orthodontic Care For Your Teen


At RTO, we always want to start orthodontic treatment when it is most effective, and for many patients, this is between the ages of 12 and 16. This is because they now have enough teeth to support the orthodontic appliances, and their growth and development have been adequately established to be predictable. That’s why orthodontics is something classically associated with teenagers, even though we treat patients from all age groups – children through adults.

The key to orthodontic success is to start the orthodontic treatment at the optimal time of dental and skeletal development and emotional maturity. There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to braces or clear aligners like Invisalign® or RTO’s Straight Teeth NOW!, it’s a highly individual task and is different for each teenager. These orthodontics cases, which are far and away the most common, are completed in a single phase of care; braces or clear aligners are worn for the appropriate time period, usually 12-24 months, and the results are superb.


"Sensational experience for my daughter. Not knowing a thing about braces when we first walked through the door; now we are professionals! Everyone is super polite and accommodating. They make you feel like family. You don't feel like a number. They make the kids feel so at home and walk them through everything. My daughter is super sensitive and they were fantastic with her! Excellent customer service and friendly staff! Can't say enough good things about them! Love it here. Phase one complete, see you soon for phase two!"
