Orthodontists can do more than just straightening your teeth! We work to correct problems that can affect your mouth and jaw. That being said, braces are just one form of the many appliances we have at our disposal that can help you live a healthier, more positive life. Because we can make your appliances (and retainers) on site in our in-office laboratory, you have quicker turn around times and the doctors have greater control over the movements of your teeth.
While orthodontic treatment most often begins between the ages of 9 and 14, some children’s orthodontic problems can benefit from earlier treatment. If it appears that your child will need treatment at some point, our doctors can advise you about the best time to begin.
