when the permanent dentition is complete and the most of the teenager hormonal changes is occurring, we can work in the "final smile" of the patient

such final growth spurt also occurs in the face, and must be well addressed by the orthodontists

therefore, even after the fixed orthodontic appliance has been removed, to wear the removable retainers is very important: the patient will still grow up to 16 or 18 year-old age, although in a very slower speed

after the teenager phase, the orthodontist must follow, if present, the positioning of the third molars ("wisdom" teeth), which should erupt about 18 year-old age
