Braces For a Beautiful Smile

EARLY TREATMENT

When is the best time t begin orthodontics?

Though Dr. Phan can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time Invisalignensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The recommendation that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. 

 

Why is age 7 considered the optimal time for screening?

By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite. During this time, Dr. Phan can evaluate front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships. For example, the presence of erupting incisors can indicate possible overbite, open bite, crowding or gummy smiles. Timely screening increases the chances for an incredible smile.

 

What are the advantages of interceptive treatment?

Some of the most direct results of interceptive treatment are:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Creating facial symmetry through influencing jaw growth
  • Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Preserving space for unerupted teeth
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal
  •  Reducing treatment time with braces

 

ADULT TREATMENT

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments such as invisalign that are designed for different age groups – including adults. A new smile can begin today.

 

Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.

 

Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces or clear braces (invisalign)  that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.

 

During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. During this initial examination, we can outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.

 

A large percentage of our patients are adults, and they agree that it’s never too late to improve their greatest asset - their smile.  Contact us today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Phan to see how she can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted!
