For those who are considering going to see an orthodontist for the first time, these three questions have probably run through your mind. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
1. Why should you choose an orthodontist?
Although also trained in general dental knowledge about cavities and gum diseases, orthodontics also have additional training in the growth and development of teeth and their skeletal relationships in both kids and adults alike.
2. At what age is the best time to see an orthodontist?
7 years old is the best time to start seeing an orthodontist. At this time, orthodontists check to see how the upper and lower jaw fit together and can gage signs of future difficulties.
3. Am I ever too old for braces or orthodontic treatment?
No. Right now about 25% of all patients are actually adult patients. Whether you want to straighten your teeth, restore crowns, or have missing teeth we can work together to achieve the outcome you want.
