Children’s Orthodontics Orthodontic treatment isn’t reserved for teens! Early treatment plans for children in elementary grades can actually help eliminate the need for more intensive orthodontic treatments later in adolescence. Early treatment doesn’t always involve braces, either. Early interventions can expand the upper and lower jaws, making enough room for crowded teeth to erupt. By preventing impacted teeth and guiding skeletal development through early orthodontic intervention, we can reduce the need for kids braces and achieve more natural results. Teen Orthodontics Some people assume teen orthodontics are a rite of passage. In fact, most orthodontic patients are teenagers. We have a variety of treatment options and technologies that have reduced the time to achieve an excellent treatment result. Today’s braces are lightweight, easier to care for and customized to suit the preferences of each patient. Adult Orthodontics Along with creating a long hoped-for smile, orthodontic treatments for adults can help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with temporomandibular joint disorders, malformations and injuries. Addressing these problems in adulthood can eliminate pain and abnormal wear on the teeth. Adult orthodontics can also slow or eliminate bone loss, tooth decay, and damage to the tooth enamel, all of which can degrade health significantly later in life. Orthodontic treatment can improve appearance and boost self-esteem in patients of all ages.
