A beautiful smile can increase self-confidence and have a positive impact on social and professional opportunities. The wonderful thing is that you are never too old to take advantage of it! Not only does orthodontics improve esthetics, but it also allows you to bite, chew, and speak more effectively. Straight teeth are also easier to clean, which can keep your mouth free of decay and gum disease.
In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adults benefit from orthodontics. At our office, we accommodate orthodontic patients of all ages..
