Orthodontics work best the sooner that they are used, and children should have an orthodontic screening by age seven. However there really is no age limit when it comes to straightening your smile. In fact, more and more adults are turning to orthodontics to improve their appearance and their oral health. Besides the esthetic improvements, properly aligned teeth can help you to eat and speak more effectively and prevent problems such as tooth damage. With young people, orthodontics can prevent issues with the growth and development of the jaws.

You may be concerned about the alignment of your teeth, or the teeth of your children. Your dentist may have suggested that you or one of your family members could benefit from an orthodontic treatment. Or, it may be that you are at a point in your life that you are able to have the treatments. Whatever the case, we are here to help and would love to see you or your child for a consultation.
