Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontics
Whether you're brand new to orthodontics or you had treatment as a child, you probably have a lot of questions. Please see below for a few we often get and don't hesitate to give us a call with any others.
No. Many of our patients are referred by their family dentist, but many other patients take the initiative to schedule an examination themselves.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic screening at age seven. By this age, several permanent teeth in most children have erupted, allowing us to effectively evaluate their orthodontic needs.
No, they will not. The space available for the front teeth does not increase as you grow. In most people, after the permanent molars erupt, the space available for the front teeth decreases with age.
If you or your child can potentially benefit from orthodontic treatment, simply call our office, send us an e-mail or fill out our appointment request form online.
We will be happy to schedule an appointment for you. When you call to schedule your appointment, our front office will request some basic information from you.
