When to Get an Orthodontic Screening
Orthodontists and dental experts recommend that every child receive an orthodontic evaluation by the time they’re 7 years old. However, many orthodontic patients are in their teens before they get braces. Today, adults make up a large percentage of orthodontic patients because of their desire to enjoy straighter, healthier, more attractive smiles. In fact, investing in braces as an adult is considered part of a comprehensive approach to treating issues like TMJ disorder and periodontal disease.
You’re never too old to benefit from a straighter smile.
Choosing the Best Type of Braces/Orthodontics
Today’s technology and resources make it possible to choose the best type of braces for your lifestyle. From traditional bracket and wire systems to removable, clear aligners (such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect) there’s something for everyone. Even short-term ortho like “fast braces” can enhance the appearance of your smile in a matter of months.
