How to know if you need orthodontics treatment
Braces aren’t necessary unless you have a bad bite. We offer local dental care services in the area such as orthodontic procedures. Our dentist will perform the necessary orthodontic procedures to help determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.
Most commonly, these are the reasons why orthodontics is recommended to a patient:
- Open bite
- Misplaced midline
The Best Age to get Orthodontic Treatment
Generally, the best time to explore if an orthodontic treatment is right is during childhood. For kids, it would be helpful to consider seeking this treatment when enough teeth have come through.
The American Academy of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends children by the age of 7 to undergo an orthodontic examination. By this age, subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth may be identified. Active orthodontic treatment is usually in between ages 9 and 14.
Most adults are doubtful when it comes to undergoing this treatment. The good news is, orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. It is not limited to children.
How Long Will it Take?
The length of treatment will depend on the dental problem. Some may take a few months while others may go on for at least two years. Our dentist here at Advanced Dental Concepts will discuss this will you along with other useful information that you need to know should you push through with the treatment. All you have to do is call us today!
The Clear Correct from Advanced Dental Concepts
One of the solutions of our dental team is the Clear Correct. This “grown-up” alternative to traditional braces involves the use of clear, removable braces that gradually correct dental alignment. Example of this is our Hammond Invisalign braces. This simple solution steadily moves the teeth into the desired position using clear retainers that can be removed for brushing and eating. These retainers are switched out every few weeks as the teeth shift into their proper position. What’s more, this alternative to metal and wire orthodontics is much less noticeable when worn.
