Orthodontics for Children
While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting an orthodontist like Dr. Greg Ross around age seven.
By this age, most children have a mix of baby and adult teeth, making it easier for Dr. Ross to diagnose, correct, and prevent tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery.
Early treatment at Smiles of Palmetto Bay allows Dr. Ross to:
- Correct and guide the growth of your child’s jaw to help the permanent
- teeth come in straight
- Create more space for crowded teeth
- Prevent teeth from becoming extracted and needing surgical intervention
- Correct thumb-sucking and help improve minor speech problems
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around Palmetto Bay and the surrounding area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Smiles of Palmetto Bay is between the ages of 11 and 16.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Ross can identify spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range. Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Smiles of Palmetto Bay, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces.
Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for teens. More and more adults are choosing to receive Invisalign and braces from Dr. Ross because they understand the importance of maintaining their health and want to feel better about their appearance.
At Smiles of Palmetto Bay, you have more esthetic options to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too!
Common Reasons Adults Consider Orthodontic Treatment:
- A bad bite or malocclusion, causing teeth to fit together incorrectly
- Teeth are crowded or spaced apart, possibly causing tooth decay or gum disease
- Abnormal jaw pain, or pressure caused by crooked teeth
- The desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile
Why Should You Think About Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. Ross aligns your teeth, it’s easier for you to keep them clean with a regular brushing and flossing routine. This helps prevent other oral issues, including problems affecting your overall health.
A Straight Smile Build Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successful orthodontic treatment at Smiles of Palmetto Bay can help boost your self-confidence, give you a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Ross recommends it, you may run into long-term health issues that may end up costing you more.
