It is never too late to begin orthodontic treatment – but when it comes to your child’s jaw and teeth development, earlier may be better than later. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, all children should have an initial orthodontic screening at age 7. If you suspect a growth issue including snoring, mouth breathing, grinding, a crossbite, an underbite or an overbite, please bring your child in sooner. We may not treat yet, but the initial evaluation is still important.
Things to be concerned about in growing children:
- Mouth breathing
- Digit sucking
We understand that you and your family juggle busy schedules with afterschool activities, homework, and other obligations. We will do all we can to accommodate your schedules. We offer both braces and Invisalign for our teenage patients. During your consultation appointment, we can discuss the pros and cons of both treatment options.
In our downtown practice we see more adults than children. We understand your needs, including efficient appointments, less frequent visits, coordinating visits with your restorative dentist, and efficient treatment.
We specialize in Invisalign. We offer a wide range of treatment options utilizing Invisalign including simple cases, interdisciplinary cases and even jaw surgery cases.
For our adult and teen patients, we understand that you want a great result but you also want to be done with treatment as fast as possible. We offer take home devices that can accelerate treatment. Ask us about it at your consultation visit.
