It’s best for the orthodontist to see children by age 7 to advise if orthodontic treatment is required and determine the best time to plan the steps for that patient to be treated.
Orthodontic treatments for children begin at around age 7 because by this time, the child’s first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in. This means crossbites, crowding and other problems can be evaluated by the orthodontist. When appropriate, treatment can begin early, and the orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth with fixed braces to straighten teeth in the upper and lower jaw.
Early orthodontic treatment for kids varies between patients, but may include removable or fixed orthodontic appliances that can provide more room for crowded, erupting teeth; preserve space for unerupted teeth; create facial symmetry through manipulating jaw growth; reduce the possibility of tooth extraction; and reduce overall treatment time in braces.
In other words, early treatment may simplify later treatment for misaligned teeth and tooth movement.
Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment for teenagers, and for good reasons. By 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, and crooked teeth, protruded teeth, crowded teeth, missing teeth, gaps and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.
This is also a good time for orthodontic treatment for teens because many negative associations of braces are not present. Many children in this age range undergo orthodontic treatment, and children are very often happy to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them, too, and want to fit in.
Besides the benefits of fitting in with their friends, children at this age are growing rapidly, and orthodontists can usually take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape the bite and teeth correctly. And teenagers at this age have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment and teeth problems.
More and more adults today are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile and oral health. We offer a variety of treatments specifically designed for adults to correct minor problems as well as orthodontic treatment gone wrong. A new smile can begin today.
Orthodontic treatment in adults at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. By seeking adult orthodontic treatment you can possibly avoid severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, irregular wear of the tooth enamel, and TMJ/TMD pain.
We offer a wide selection of braces and orthodontic treatments for adults that meet the individual needs and desires of each of our adult patients. From traditional metal braces and ceramic braces to clear braces, invisible braces and clear aligners ( Invisalign® ), we are confident we can help you achieve and maintain straight teeth as well as the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve always dreamed about.
Just as orthodontics repositions teeth, surgical orthodontics (also known as orthognathic surgery) corrects jaw irregularities to improve the patient’s ability to chew, speak, and breathe and for improved facial appearances.
In other words, surgical orthodontics treatment straightens your jaw. Moving the jaws also moves the teeth, so braces are always performed in conjunction with jaw correction. This treatment helps make sure teeth are in their proper positions after surgery.
Orthognathic surgery is performed by Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons who are specialists in surgery related to the mouth, jaws and associated facial structures.
We love seeing our patients achieve their best and most beautiful smiles. The team at The Orthodontic Place will be here to assist from day one and all the way through to your last treatment session and beyond!
