However, many teenagers suffer from orthodontic problems such as misaligned teeth, badly positioned jaws or dental crowding. Fortunately, orthodontics can offer effective solutions to these problems. Our dental office in Brussels offers the highest quality services that meet their specific needs in order to offer them a radiant smile for life.

However, collaboration between the patient, the parents and the orthodontist is essential. Care must be taken to ensure that the adolescent follows the hygiene instructions and the follow-up appointments for the smooth running of the treatment.
A teenager is often concerned about his appearance. He may therefore fear the impact of braces on his social life. We will choose with the teenager the dental appliance that suits him best. We will also give him advice on how to take care of his device.
Orthodontics for adolescents therefore requires a specific approach to take into account the specificities of dental development, social and psychological concerns, as well as the expectations and needs of adolescents.
