For All Ages
Orthodontics isn’t just for teens—everyone can potentially benefit from treatment!
Orthodontics for Children
Children should be seen right around their seventh birthday. At this age, treatment will not begin, but the child should have enough permanent teeth to make the bite relationships clear. If there are significant issues, treatment can begin in a few years to prevent the need for surgery later on in life. If there are no significant issues, the child should come back at about age 11 to see if treatment is needed at that stage. Goals of early treatment include guiding jaw growth and making space for all adult teeth.
Orthodontics for Teens
Teens are the classic orthodontics patients, at an age where all orthodontic problems are clear but there is still growing left to be done. We offer teen patients attractive and fun options for straightening their teeth. During the initial consultation, we work with them to determine which types of treatment are suited to their needs and their lifestyle. It is easy to find the right treatment since we offer many technologically advanced options.
Orthodontics for Adults
We don’t think of adults as being orthodontics patients, but about one out of every five people in treatment are over the age of 21. If you are thinking to yourself you have never seen an adult undergoing orthodontic treatment, it is likely because we tend to use more discreet options on adults. These include Invisalign, lingual braces, and clear braces, all of which help make treatment less visible or fully invisible. Many professionals opt to correct their smiles to be perceived better in the working world.
