you may first think of teenagers when you think of braces, orthodontic
treatment can benefit people, regardless of their ages. Today, more
and more adults are wearing braces to correct a bothersome smile.
Modern orthodontic advances such as less visible braces, as well
as affordable payment plans, have made treatment an attractive option
At the same
time, some young children may greatly benefit from early detection
of problem bites, and, in some cases, early treatment of those problems.
We can help guide tooth and jaw development as a child grows and
adult teeth come in. Early treatment may prevent more serious problems
from developing, and may make treatment at a later age shorter or
less complicated. For these reasons, the American Association of
Orthodontists recommends that all children get an orthodontic screening
no later than age 7.
Smile, a Healthy Outlook
treatment can improve dental health as it improves your looks. Straight,
well-aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain. Correcting
orthodontic problems can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and
even tooth loss. With a smile that's truly healthy, you feel better
about yourself and your interactions with others.
