Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth are known sources of self-consciousness, embarrassment and low self-esteem. There a lot of treatment options to correct teeth that are crowded or crooked including retainers, aligners and braces (invisible, metal, ceramic or micro braces). Correcting a bad bite and improperly aligned teeth (malocclusion) is important not only for aesthetic reasons but also for proper oral health and function.
Orthodontic treatment can be a great tool at any stage of life- for children, adolescents and even adults. Your age, jaw and the size of your teeth all contribute to your smile. Bite problems usually become obvious between ages 6 and 12, and orthodontic treatments often start at ages 8 and 14. But this doesn’t mean that adults aren’t good candidates for braces. Healthy teeth can be adjusted at any age. In fact, many orthodontic cases can be corrected as easily for adults as for children.
At the EARTH Dental, we offer the following orthodontic solutions for children, teens and adults.
