OrthodonticsTreatment for All Ages
When is the best time to begin orthodontics?
Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur by age 7. Many orthodontic problems are easier to correct if detected at an early age.

A new smile can begin today.
Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults.
Later in life, orthodontic treatment can significantly improve your appearance and self-esteem. Unaligned teeth can cause tooth decay, bone loss, tooth enamel wear, headaches, and pain in the jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) over time.
Our modern methods and techniques, including tradiitonal metal braces or clear aligners can reduce discomfort, cut down on the number of dental visits, and speed up the healing process.
We will be able to decide on the best course of action for your unique needs during your initial consultation. We can discuss your treatment plan, estimate the treatment time, and provide you with the cost for orthodontic services.
Many of our patients are adults, and they believe that it’s never too late to enhance your smile.
