Orthodontic Treatment – Pubertal Stage
Orthodontic treatment during the pubertal stage is to correct chin protrusion, short chin, facial asymmetry and structural problems using the patient’s growth to our advantage and preventing the progression of an unwanted condition. The younger the child, it is easier to obtain astonishing results in aesthetics during growth as structural bones are softer and therefore allows adjustment/correction as required. Depending on the condition, treatment methods may differ however, receiving orthodontic treatment during the pubertal stage is most effective in correcting a condition.
Orthodontic TreatmentPubertal Stage
Orthodontic treatment during pubertal stage is mainly to correct or improve a condition as this stage is most effective in moving teeth and allowing facial adaption to occur in harmony. Orthodontic treatment is most commonly used to maintain space in children, to prevent malocclusion which can occur due to early loss of baby teeth. Treatment can involve the use of appliances to induce a balanced growth of the upper and lower jaw, preventing conditions that may require orthognathic surgery in adulthood.
Cases that may require orthodontic treatment during the pubertal stage:
- Facial asymmetry
- Changes in facial shape; round face becoming elongated
- Growth of the lower jaw, protruding in front of the upper teeth
- Early dislocation of the jawbonee
- Small upper jaw
Is orthodontic treatment necessary during the pubertal stage?
Not treating a structural problem during the growth stage can result in treatment in the future, which may possibly accompany a surgery. Conditions that are problematic aesthetically and/or functionally as a child can continue to progress into adulthood, increasing in severity. The child’s lifestyle also needs to be considered when deciding the need for orthodontic treatment as children/teenagers can be conscious and sensitive to appearances which can affect their mental health and character.

The most ideal time to consider orthodontic treatment is during the pubertal stage in adolescents.
Orthodontic treatment during pubertal stage is mainly to correct or improve a condition as this stage is most effective in moving teeth and allowing facial adaption to occur in harmony. For girls, the best time is a year before the first menstrual cycle to 3 years after and for boys, most ideal between grade 4 to the first year of high school. This is because the growth period is longer in boys than girls..
