A beautiful smile can make you feel more confident about yourself. A proper bite also contributes to improved dental health, which can affect your overall physical health and well being.

Orthodontic treatment may be necessary to straighten teeth when a person’s teeth or jaw structure do not fit together properly.

These problems are often referred to by orthodontists as malocclusions (or bad bites) and can cause speech difficulty, premature wear of the teeth and protective enamel, and increase the chance of injury to teeth and jaw joints. It can even make you uncomfortable smiling.

If you are wondering when to have your child’s smile evaluated by an orthodontist, the American Association of Orthodontics recommends every child be evaluated by an orthodontist by age seven, unless a specific problem is identified earlier.

This is because this is the time when kids are starting to get their first adult molars which establish the back bite. However, it’s never too late to correct a smile as a growing number of our orthodontic patients are adults who are now taking the time to give themselves the smiles they’ve always wanted.

We offer free consultations to all orthodontic patients and specialize in braces for adults and children. We’re also proud to offer Invisalign for adults and teens.
