It’s normal for young people not to cooperate!
Everyone knows that the patient’s cooperation is essential during orthodontic treatment.
- When there is a problem with any kind of cooperation with a young patient, we discuss it with him or her and share it with parents. Sometimes, some parents tell us that we must be aware that teenagers cannot cooperate fully and all the time. It is in the “nature” of the teenager, it is normal and it is a reality of today’s life that they try to explain to us! Perhaps… but the fact remains that lack of cooperation will always have important consequences on the quality, duration and success of orthodontic treatment.
