Orthodontics For Children
We, along with the American Association of Orthodontists®, recommend that children receive their initial orthodontic screening by age 7. By this age, your child is developed enough that our orthodontist can easily diagnose any potential issues and determine if orthodontic treatment is needed, and if so when it should begin. Our orthodontist may also recommend early treatment for children to correct any developing problems before they can become more serious, saving you time as well as money in the future.
Benefits of early orthodontic treatment include:
- Providing space for crowded erupting teeth
- Preserving space for unerupted teeth
- Guiding jaw growth to create facial symmetry
- Reducing the need for future tooth extractions
- Reducing future treatment time
Orthodontics For Teenagers
The teenage years are a great time for orthodontic treatment! Our orthodontist and team are aware that the teenage years are very busy and involve a wide range of activities, from school, friends and dating to sports and other extracurricular activities. We offer several options to work with your teenager’s oral health needs and their lifestyle, and we will work with them and with you to create a treatment plan that is right for them.
Benefits of receiving orthodontic care as a teenager include:
- Reduced treatment time
- Reduced likelihood for tooth extraction
- Preservation of space for any unerupted or crowded teeth
- Stimulating and guiding jaw growth for facial symmetry and aesthetics
- Preserved tooth health
- Reduced risk of damage due to protruding teeth or other issues
Orthodontics for Adults
You are never too old to receive orthodontic treatment! In fact, about 25% of all patients receiving orthodontic treatment now are adults. As long as your teeth and mouth are healthy, you should be able to receive orthodontic treatment without any difficulty. Our experienced orthodontist and team offer several treatment options to help you achieve a more beautiful smile, including more discreet options such as Invisalign® clear aligners so that you can maintain an aesthetic appearance while improving your smile.
