Orthodontic Treatments for Children and Adults
Orthodontics for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. While your child's teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect. An orthodontist can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present. That's important, because some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they're found early.
Orthodontics for Adults
Adults are the fastest growing population of patients seeking orthodontic care. In fact, about one in every five orthodontic patients today is over age 18. Adult treatment is very similar to standard adolescent treatment. With adult patients, we truly listen to the patient's chief compliant and concentrate our efforts in addressing these main concerns. And advancements like clear/invisible braces and shorter treatment times makes orthodontics even more appealing now. It's never too late to get a healthy, beautiful smile!
