Early Orthodontic Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this age, orthodontic treatment is usually not necessary, but a simple exam can anticipate the best time to begin treatment.

Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and a greater opportunity for more effective treatment. In some cases, intervention is needed to guide growth and development to prevent serious problems later. Even if orthodontic intervention is not necessary right away, an orthodontist can carefully monitor development and begin treatment when it is ideal.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Everyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Adults account for about 20% of orthodontic patients today. No matter the stage of life, you can benefit from visiting the orthodontist.

If you do not treat your misaligned teeth, you may suffer from difficulty chewing, jaw pain, and unnecessary wearing of your teeth. Having orthodontic treatment performed, even as an adult, can improve your overall dental health. Adult orthodontics can also help fix problems like crooked teeth or unnecessary gaps you’ve had for years. You’ll experience an increased confidence that comes with having a great smile.
