Orthodontic treatment can be beneficial at any age. We offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to children, adolescents, teens, and adults of all ages.
The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends an initial orthodontic check-up by age 7. At your first appointment, we will fully evaluate the teeth, jaws, and face to determine if orthodontic treatment is right for your child.
A first phase of orthodontic treatment usually occurs when some baby teeth are still present. Some of the reasons that Phase 1 treatment may be appropriate for your child are:
The second phase of orthodontic treatment usually occurs when most or all of the permanent teeth are present. This is when the permanent teeth will be moved to their final positions.
Adolescents and teens are usually at an ideal age for orthodontic treatment, and this can be one of the best times to start!

People of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment and healthy teeth can be moved at any age! Adults are seeking orthodontic treatment for a variety of reasons.
These are some of the most common reasons adults choose orthodontic treatment:
Our metal braces are smaller with a low profile, making them more discrete and comfortable than other metal braces. These brackets allow the teeth to move efficiently and with complete control. You will also be able to choose from a variety of colors for your braces – very fun!
Clear or cosmetic braces optimize esthetics. Ours are made from pure crystal sapphire and polished to be exceptionally smooth, incredibly clear, and very strong. And they appear nearly invisible on the teeth!
Self-ligating braces are unique in that each bracket has its own closure component built-in. You may have heard of other types such as Damon® braces. We use our system for both the benefit of less friction at the beginning of treatment and more control toward the end of treatment.
Clear aligners can be thought of as removable, and invisible, braces. We are certified providers of Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®.
