Orthodontics Overview
Orthodontics, commonly known as braces, are used to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the smile and correct malocclusions such as crowded teeth, missing teeth, or misaligned teeth.

Children
All children should have an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. Braces are usually worn between the ages of 10 and 14, when growth best accommodates orthodontic treatment.

Adults
Modern orthodontic treatments achieve amazing results quickly and easily. As a result, many more adults are now undergoing orthodontic treatment to enhance the appearance of their smile.

  • Traditional solutions: Traditional braces include bands, where metal strips reposition teeth; lingual braces, which are attached to the backs of teeth, out of view; and brackets, which are bonded directly to teeth.
  • New Solutions: The latest trend in orthodontics utilizes removable clear plastic "aligners", which fit snugly over the teeth to reposition them. Approximately every two weeks, new aligners are inserted, to accommodate the repositioning of the teeth.
