We are pleased to offer orthodontic services for both our patients and their parents! Braces are used to assist in aligning and straightening teeth in order to not only improve appearance, but to also improve a person’s bite. Braces may be used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help with making corrections to a person’s bite.
Your first visit will begin with a consultation to review the best alternatives for your orthodontic care. Your doctor will address any questions you may have regarding your treatment and will also provide a plan for orthodontic therapy.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child see an orthodontist by age 7, and perhaps earlier if a an orthodontic concern is identified. Around age 7, the first adult molars typically erupt, helping to define a patient’s back bite and allowing the orthodontist to more effectively evaluate the bite.
Dental technology has vastly improved over the years, enabling traditional braces to provide patients with a more comfortable orthodontic experience combined with faster and more effective results. Available in both metal and clear ceramic brackets, the latest technology in traditional braces offers patients combine tieless braces with high technology arch wires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.
