Smile Shaping That Lasts
An orthodontist is a dentist that specializes in treating misaligned or improper bites. Using appliances like braces and retainers, they can straighten teeth and correct jaw problems in children and adults.
Children will often be referred for orthodontic treatment as early as age 7 to check for any issues. As baby teeth are replaced with permanent ones, misalignment can occur, making early treatment essential.
At Flatirons Family Dental & Orthodontics, our team can help you and your family have beautiful smiles that last.
If you are considering straightening you or your children’s teeth, you have a few options:
Braces: Braces are small metal brackets that are glued to your teeth and tied together by wires and tiny rubber bands. This is the most common option for children, with kids typically beginning treatment between ages 9 and 14. Treatment time varies, though braces usually need at least one year to do their job.
Invisalign: Less visible than braces, Invisalign are removable clear plastic trays that are fitted to your teeth to align them into the correct position. Treatment time is typically shorter, though it is recommended for adults only as it requires self-discipline for effectiveness.
