Orthodontics for Kids and adults

Orthodontics for Kids and adults Bhavana Thakur D.D.S, Campbell Dentist

Orthodontics is an excellent way to straighten your teeth! While they are used to straighten teeth for an enhanced smile, they also help restore functionality to teeth, as well as your jaw and bite. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children should have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7 years regardless of how many teeth have erupted.

This is because with early orthodontic assesment dentist can predict if any structural changes will occur to the mouth that may impede on a child’s bite and cause serious problems in the long term.

Adults get orthodontics too! There’s a stigma still present in our society that believes only children and teenagers should partake in orthodontics. This is completely false. There is no age limit on when a person should begin orthodontic treatment. More and more adults are getting orthodontic treatments with regular metal brackets and clear aligners

Traditional Metal Braces These are the most common form of braces. While they are not nearly as appealing as clear, invisible braces, they are still highly efficient at correcting orthodontic problems and are very cost effective for price conscious patients.

Clear aligners These are the superior choice for adults as they are clear in color, removable, and work as effectively as traditional metal braces. Because they are removable, they are also much easier to manage than traditional braces in terms of maintenance, brushing, and flossing. We are a ClearCorrect provider.
