A bright new smile, a comfortably aligned bite, along with new confidence to face the world are just a few benefits of Orthodontics. Without orthodontics people are more susceptible to speech impairments, tooth decay, chewing difficulties, and gum disease. People of all age groups can benefit from orthodontics including children, teens, adults, and seniors.
Children & Teens
The American Association of Orthodontists suggest that children see an orthodontist by the time they are 7 years of age. That is when the first permanent teeth typically start to grow in. Early orthodontic intervention can ensure that the teeth come in straight from the beginning.
For teens, early orthodontics treatment provides confidence, less tooth decay, and an improved ability to eat and speak. Being able to smile freely without embarrassment can also improve early emotional development for children and teens.
When it comes to orthodontics, you’re never to old to recieve treatment. While most of our orthodontic patients are teens, 1-in-5 are over the age of 21. The average adult will need orthodontics treatment for a total of 1 to 3 years.
Crowded or misaligned teeth can cause tooth decay and gum disease along with other health problems that come with not being able to eat comfortably. If you are an adult or senior, alignment of your teeth can greatly improve your oral and overall physical health.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Here at Celebrity Smiles we use Invisalign® for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® is the clear alternative to unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces. Invisalign® allows you to remove the alignments trays to eat, brush and floss. Along with not limiting the types of foods you can consume, Invisalign® also reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Proper alignment of your teeth prevents large build ups of plaque and tartar.
