Orthodontist serving Heathrow, FL

Orthodontics have come a long way over the years. In the past, people associated braces and other orthodontics with clunky, unsightly and uncomfortable devices that made life difficult for about two years, but these days an orthodontist can fit you or your child with braces that are practically unnoticeable and pain-free. Patients young and old now have several options available to them when it comes to orthodontics, from traditional metal braces to the revolutionary Invisalign system. Every option has its own advantages and disadvantages, and some may be better options for certain patients than others, but they are all designed to provide patients with a beautiful and healthy smile.

Pediatric Orthodontics

The American Association of Orthodontists recommend that children receive their first orthodontic screening by the time they are seven years old. By performing early examinations and starting treatment early, an orthodontist is able to better recognize potential issues such as crowding, overbite and crooked teeth. It's important that these issues be addressed and treated early before they become more serious problems. Each patient will require his or her own individualized treatment that may include removable or fixed appliances that preserve space for crowded teeth and make room for teeth that have yet to erupt.

Adult Orthodontics

Of course, orthodontics are not only for developing children. Tooth alignment can be performed for adults as well as long as their gums and bone structure are still healthy. As with children, orthodontics can vastly improve the appearance, self-esteem and health of adults, especially now that new treatment options such as ceramic braces and Invisalign are available. These treatments can reduce discomfort and shorten the treatment period while being practically unnoticeable. Many modern orthodontic patients are adults, and many of them agree that it is never too late to improve their appearance or dental health.
