Perfect, healthy smiles for a lifetime.
It’s incredibly advantageous for you and your children to have great orthodontic care within the same practice as your pediatric dentist. This allows our doctors to offer comprehensive oral care and to easily and effectively communicate and consult about treatment options and plans. It also allows the kids to become familiar with orthodontics at an early age and to enjoy the comfort that comes with already knowing the staff members.
Of course, our orthodontic treatment is not just for kids. We accept patients of all ages and approach everyone with the same attention and understanding. We believe information is power for every patient and we always make sure that all patients are aware of all of their options. We’ll also always answer any questions we can in order to help you make the best decisions regarding treatment.
Here are a few fun facts about orthodontics:
• The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up no later than age seven.
• Most orthodontic patients begin active treatment between ages 9 and 14.
• Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics have the ability to improve a patient’s facial profile, function and even breathing!
• Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, and about one in every five orthodontic patients today is over age 18.
