The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children, regardless of their orthodontic progression, receive an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. Early examination allows orthodontists to determine the best time for orthodontic treatment, and if necessary, to begin.
Early interceptive orthodontic therapy can minimize the need for more complex treatment in the future.
By the time children reach adolescence, their permanent teeth are either in, or are erupting. Teenagers jaw bones are almost finished growing, making this an ideal time to correct their teeth.
People whose teeth are crooked or misaligned are often self conscious about their appearance. By starting early, you can give your child a healthy smile with a lifetime of benefits. Seeing our patients grow and mature into confident young adults is one of our greatest rewards.
No matter what your age, appearance is an important aspect of your life. You are never too old for orthodontic treatment. In fact, thirty percent of our patients are adults.
Many adults seek orthodontic treatment not just for the sake of their smiles, but to improve the function of their bite.
Adult orthodontics are more convenient and comfortable than ever. Technological advancements have made adulthood a great time to achieve the smile you have always wanted.
