A beautiful smile can be life changing. The best part is, you are never to old to straighten your teeth! In addition to a smile everyone will envy, orthodontics can improve your bite and allow you to chew and speak more effectively. Straight teeth are also easier to keep clean, which helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic examination by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. This benefits of early treatment can include avoiding removal of permanent teeth and jaw surgery.
Of course there is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. At Touchstone Orthodontics, we accommodate patients of all ages. In fact, more than half of our patients are adults!
