Orthodontics (Traditional and Ceramic Braces, and Invisalign)

About Orthodontics

Orthodontics for Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have an initial evaluation by the age of 7. Why? Because it is the ideal time to evaluate skeletal development and to identify the position of the permanent teeth. Each child’s needs are unique. For some, it is best to begin treatment before all of the permanent teeth have come in – this is called Phase I / Interceptive Treatment. For others, it makes more sense to wait until the permanent teeth are fully erupted. Starting orthodontic treatment at the right time will ensure excellent results and shorten treatment time.

Phase I treatment, when indicated, may reduce the possibility of removing permanent teeth in order to correct overcrowding. It lowers the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth, guides jaw growth and permanent teeth into more favorable positions, manages crowding and spacing problems, corrects harmful habits, eliminates abnormal swallowing or speech problems, and it can improve appearance and self-esteem.

Orthodontics for Adults

More and more adults are having orthodontic treatment to correct crowded teeth and many adults need orthodontic treatment as part of interdisciplinary dental care. 20% of orthodontic patients are over the age of 21. Modern orthodontic appliances—braces—are less obtrusive and adults are more willing to wear them. Clear ceramic braces and clear aligners are options available to adults with concerns about aesthetics while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Success of orthodontic treatment is independent of age.
