Teenager Orthodontic Treatment

Teens are the largest group of orthodontic patients, covering 60-70% of patients. The appropriate time for the onset of orthodontic treatment of adolescents is just before last teeth' apoptosis, approximately at the age of 11-12.

Orthodontic treatment of adolescents involves welding of fixed mechanisms to all permanent teeth in order to settle them in the most functional and aesthetic position in relation to both smile and face profile. Patient collaboration both during the treatment and during the retention phase of the therapeutic effect is considered necessary to achieve the best possible result in the shortest possible time and to maintain the therapeutic effect over the long term.

Orthodontic treatment and proper tooth positioning combined with very good oral hygiene are the best guarantee for both the longevity of the teeth and the quality of life of the individual.

Where we are

  • Kleopatra - Xenia Kyparissidou, Vrilissia
    "I decided at an older age ( 41 years old) to start orthodontic treatment , when realized that I was avoiding looking at my teeth on the mirror. My case was quite difficult, cause my teeth were extremely crowded and affected by periodontitis, and I was extremely scared of visiting the orthodontist. I will never forget Dr. Tzamalas' first words on the phone " The most important thing is to pass through the surgery's door".   And indeed, I passed through that door and everything happened quickly and pleasantly. " In a year's time you will get straight teeth without any extractions". And exactly after a year my smile was completely transformed. Most importantly throughout the treatment Dr. Tzamalas was available at all times for any questions I had or any urgent adjustments needed to be done,  and all that in a brand modern and super clean practice. Kosta I can not thank you enough!!!"

    "I feel great with my new smile. I had gaps among my teeth and my jaws did not close properly. My therapy plan included mobile mechanisms and then invisible braces. My whole treatment was much shorter than I expected. Everyone at Athens Orthodontics practice was really friendly while Dr. Tzamalas was always there to answer any question I had. I have already recommended my orthodontist to my friends and relatives. Thank you all at Athens Orthodontics for my perfect smile!"

    "Before I visit the Orthodontist, I was really hesitant at wearing braces especially due to my age and mainly for aesthetic reasons. The time, though, I visited Dr Tzamalas and talked about it, I was really happy to find out that he is an excellent professional and an exceptional person. I finally got the right decision. The whole process was painless and the time passed by really quickly. At the end, I have a great and healthy denture. Thank you Dr. Tzamalas for giving me this great smile! "
