Invest in a Straight Smile

Did you know a straight smile is important for more than just your self-esteem? It also influences your dental health and your quality of life. Misalignment concerns don’t just cause you to feel insecure. They also increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, dental emergencies, and erosion your enamel. It can also cause complications with your temporomandibular joint. Thankfully, your orthodontist can improve the appearance and function of your smile. Whether young or old, Huntington Orthodontics treats patients of all ages.

Orthodontics for Children

Believe it or not, children should have their first orthodontic consultation before the age of 7. You may think this is a bit young because your child will still have several baby teeth, but it allows Dr. Justyna to provide early intervention for issues that can impact your child’s growth and development. She can even use X-rays to see problems with the adult teeth that are brewing beneath the surface.

Phase 1 orthodontics corrects specific problems early to lessen the need for more extensive treatments in the future. This is the ideal time to fix certain bite and alignment issues because your child is still growing. This creates the foundation they need for proper dental health and functions.

Orthodontics for Teens

Between the ages of 10 and 15, your child should have lost most if not all their baby teeth. Now, it’s time to focus on aesthetics. Life as a teen can be difficult. The last thing they need is attention brought to their misaligned teeth. Dr. Justyna will help them achieve a beautiful smile for the years ahead using a customized treatment plan.

If your teen went through early orthodontics, Phase 2 shouldn’t be nearly as extensive. She’ll move your teen’s teeth into their ideal positions to create a beautiful smile. Traditional braces are the most common option to correct bite and alignment concerns. Although they are effective, they can make your teen feel insecure. Now, there are several other choices that are less noticeable, like Clear Braces or Invisalign. Your teen can feel confident while on their journey to a straight smile.
