Interceptive Orthodontics Treatment

By the age of seven, your child should receive an initial orthodontic evaluation, according to the American Association of Orthodontists. It is at this early age that prospective bite problems, alignment issues and development concerns can be properly addressed – the sooner an orthodontic issue is detected, the less time and effort it will take to be corrected.

This initial evaluation may reveal that your child’s bite will develop normally, or the orthodontist may detect issues that are invisible to the untrained eye. In this case, the orthodontist will then decide to monitor the child’s growth and subsequently prescribe treatment at the appropriate age, or determine that your child would benefit from early, interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Early orthodontic treatment may:

  • Correctly guide the growth of your child’s jaw
  • Reduce the possibility of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Rectify the effects of improper oral habits
  • Improve the appearance of your child’s smile
  • Ensure that permanent teeth move into the best possible position
  • Help improve how the lips meet

Your child’s orthodontist may also decide that braces should be in your child’s near future. Thanks to advances in dental technology, traditional braces are much more comfortable and efficient than in previous years – they are now made of a nickel-titanium material and are much less noticeable than before. Very common among young teenagers, braces help create a healthier, more beautiful smile for your child.

Adult Orthodontics Treatment

High-quality orthodontic treatments are not reserved only for developing children – many adults who are uncomfortable with the appearance or functionality of their smile may benefit from an orthodontic assessment. As long as the bone structure, gums and teeth are healthy, tooth alignment can be corrected, no matter the age of the patient.

A straighter smile is much easier to keep healthy than one that is comprised of crooked teeth or a misaligned bite. If you feel you are experiencing pain due to orthodontic-related issues, or would just like a more attractive smile, the experts at Tech Dentistry can recommend the best treatment plan for you. Our comprehensive practice can even provide you with state-of-the-art six-month adult braces to quickly and affordably improve the look of your smile.

It’s never too late! Call our Midtown office today at (404) 733-2022 or schedule an appointment with us online to learn more about orthodontic treatment for adults.
