Why are braces necessary?
Whether you are an adult concerned about your looks, or a parent concerned about the healthy development of your child’s teeth, we’ll work closely with you to ensure better teeth alignment, improved functioning of the teeth, and less difficulty chewing or speaking. The proper braces now can help prevent future problems such as gum disease, TMJ, and improper wear on poorly aligned teeth.
What age is best for braces?
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an evaluation before they reach seven years of age. By this point in your child’s development, the dentition and jaws will have reached the point where any current or future problems should be evident. By providing early intervention, your Family Dental Group dentist can ensure your child receives the necessary care to develop proper jaw growth. Appropriate braces also regulates the width of your child’s dental arches, encouraging the correct development and positioning of permanent teeth, while preventing future problems.
Braces for adults.
Children aren’t the only ones who benefit from proper braces. Adults, too, may feel uncomfortable about crooked or misaligned teeth. Whatever your age, your Family Dental Group dentist can recommend an appropriate solution to ensure proper oral health, while giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Don’t let age deter you from seeking appropriate care. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy and show no signs of periodontal disease, you are never too old for straighter, healthier, and more beautiful teeth.
Gone are the days when braces meant unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces. Today’s solutions are designed to correct misaligned teeth with few of the conventional drawbacks. The Family Dental Group professionals will recommend the right braces based on a full oral examination. Depending on the type of problem in need of correction, we will recommend a solution that meets your objectives, addresses the severity of the problem, and corrects the specific type of defect involved.
For those self-conscious about wearing braces.
Your dentist’s recommendation may include visible or invisible braces, or some type of retainer, possibly one worn only at night. If you have concerns about wearing traditional braces, ask your Family Dental Group dentist whether invisible braces might work just as well for your needs.
