While the term “orthodontics” usually conjures up an image of a teenager in braces, this dental specialty includes a wide range of services benefiting patients of all ages.

Orthodontic Treatment for Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children be seen by an orthodontist at age 7 for an accurate oral development history and to determine if early intervention is needed.

Palatal expanders and partial sets of braces are common treatments for children between the ages of 7 and 10. Learn more

Teens are the perfect age for braces or Invisalign because they have the majority of their adult teeth, but their teeth are still able to move fairly easily. Parents of teens often opt for traditional braces because of their reputation for being effective, but Invisalign and ceramic braces are also good options for kids who are self-conscious about their smiles.


Orthodontic Treatment for Teens and Adults

It’s never too late to get a straighter, healthier smile! In fact, more adults than ever are getting the treatment they have needed since childhood, or are tuning up their smiles after having braces years ago as a teen.

Silver braces for adults are fairly common, but there are also many discreet treatment options available now, like Invisalign, Incognito, and INBRACE so patients don’t have to worry about having a mouthful of noticeable brackets and wires.
