At Affiliated Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, our mission is to help each one of our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. Our doctors and expert team of highly trained dental and orthodontic specialists work hard to get to know every patient on an individual level, and we're proud to serve the Scottsdale  community with high quality orthodontic care. While orthodontic treatment can occur at any age, there's one age group that makes up a majority of our orthodontic patients - and as you might expect, it's teenagers.

Phase II Treatment

Most patients will undergo orthodontic treatment between ages 11-15, and there's good reason for that. At this age, all of the baby teeth have fallen out, and most of the permanent teeth will have erupted. This means we can easily see what orthodontic problems exist, and since we'll be working on permanent teeth, the changes we make will last the patient the rest of their life. 

Additionally,. during this period, we can actually take advantage of the natural growth processes helping to speed up tooth movement and shorten treatment times.
