Orthodontics (braces) is the best way to correct crowding, spacing or misaligned teeth.

Braces for Children and YouthBraces for Children

The American Dental Association recommends the first orthodontic screening by age seven to determine if orthodontic treatment is desirable and when it is best used. The first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time and cross bites, crowding and other problems can be evaluated. When treatment is initiated at an early age, we can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth. Early treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems.

Orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve quality of life and self-esteem for nearly all ages, but adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile in social and professional gatherings. Advances in orthodontic techniques now provide for “invisible” or tooth-colored braces and removable clear tooth aligners. While there are some considerations that may impact an adult’s outcome using orthodontics, most adults can enjoy significant success with our treatment.
