For Children and Adults

For Kids/Teens

It is recommended for children to visit an orthodontist by the age of 7. If your child has significant orthodontic or developmental problems, the main advantage of early treatment is that your child's natural facial growth can be influenced at an early age. This may avoid a more costly and invasive procedure in the future, such as orthognathic surgery. Early orthodontic treatment is also used to manage space for permanent teeth, so this type of treatment may avoid the need for extraction of permanent teeth in the future. Other benefits include reducing the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correcting thumb-sucking, and eliminating abnormal swallowing or speech problems. Early orthodontic treatment is typically completed in 6 to 12 months, depending on the needs of your child.

For Adults

No matter what your age, your appearance and self-confidence are important aspects of your life. If you are unhappy with your smile, have cooked teeth, or an uneven profile, it is never too late to begin orthodontic treatment. In fact, 30-35% percent of orthodontic patients are adults. In addition to enhancing your smile, you might pursue orthodontic treatment to improve the function of your bite, which can improve you oral health.

For adults that may be concerned about the appearance of traditional metal braces, we are pleased to offer Invisalign Aligners, which are clear plastic trays that gradually move teeth into their correct positions, as well as clear ceramic braces.
