Orthodontics for Children
In many cases, orthodontic treatment is best begun before all of the permanent teeth have erupted. It’s best for the children to be assessed by age 7 when the first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in. At this point problems such as cross-bites, crowding and misalignment can be diagnosed and evaluated, and the necessity and the best timing for an orthodontic treatment determined. At The Art of Smile we focus on early prevention and interception of problems utilizing modern European and American techniques. Early treatment can regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, guide the growth and gain the space for incoming permanent teeth, thus avoiding the need for permanent tooth extractions and reducing likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. In other words, early treatment can simplify later treatment.
Orthodontics for Adults
Braces aren’t just for teenagers. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so it is never too late to improve your dental health and beautify your smile. Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. In fact, one of every four patients at The Art of Smile is an adult. Why do adults opt to get braces?
There are many benefits of adult orthodontics whether you’re seeking to correct bite or jaw problems, crooked or crowded teeth, or the regression that can happen after having braces as a child. Treating these problems can reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease which can lead to better maintenance of your dental health. Adult orthodontics can also reduce headaches and jaw pain that can be associated with jaw and teeth placement.
Some adults considering orthodontic treatment are concerned about having to wear visible metal braces for a length of time. However, as a result of constantly improving technology in many cases various modern solutions, such as the Invisalign® system using sets of clear removable aligners or a fast-track adult orthodontics systems utilizing clear ceramic braces instead of the traditional metal ones make orthodontic treatment for adults more comfortable and take less time than ever before. It should come as no surprise that the fastest growing segment of orthodontic care is for adults.
