An early orthodontic evaluation can ease a parent's concerns about crooked/crowded teeth, missing teeth, and facial development. Some conditions are best treated early for biological, social or practical reasons, whereas others should be deferred until most or all permanent teeth have erupted.
By bringing your child in for an orthodontic evaluation, we can address any situation that needs early intervention or periodically monitor his or her growth and development until the appropriate time to start treatment.
Braces for Teens
Orthodontic treatment is a viable option for almost any teenager. It is well recognized that when left untreated, many orthodontic problems may become worse, and certain conditions may lead to dental health problems. The inability to clean certain areas of teeth may contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. Bad bites can also result in abnormal wearing of tooth surfaces and difficulty chewing.
Braces aren't just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today!
