No matter your age, we’ve got you covered!
We take pride in treating our patients like we would ourselves or our own children—with the right treatment at the right time. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends bringing children to an orthodontist at the age of 7, when the top permanent teeth start to erupt, or beforehand if you and your dentist have concerns about your child’s teeth, oral habits, or development. Some children may need early orthodontic treatment to guide the growth of the jaws and the teeth. In many cases, children will only be monitored for years before a traditional treatment is required. Dr. Parks will only initiate treatment on children if absolutely necessary.
Different types of Braces
Traditional metal braces have been used for a very long time, and have proved effective in aligning teeth and correcting bite problems. They consist of silver-colored stainless steel brackets that use colored elastics to hold the arch wires in place. These colored elastic bands are changed every time you come in to ensure every band has enough force to move your teeth to their ideal positions. We let children and teens have a little fun and show off their personalities by choosing the colors of their bands. Traditional braces are also the most economical treatment option and the most popular alternative amongst our youngest patients.
Discreet way to all-star smiles!
Invisalign is one of the most popular options to straighten teeth without making it obvious that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. It is an innovative way to correct bite problems, as it uses AI technology to have a predictable course of treatment and allows you to see your “after smile” even before you get started. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, removable, and more comfortable than braces. They are worn for 20-22 hours daily to gradually move your teeth to their ideal positions. And since they are removable, there are no food restrictions, and you can easily brush and floss your teeth – making Invisalign a popular aesthetic option for self-conscious teenagers and professionals.
Retainers are an essential component of orthodontic treatment, helping to maintain the new position of teeth after braces have been removed. They prevent teeth from shifting back to their original position, especially during the first few months after braces removal, while also preventing further misalignment due to factors such as grinding, clenching, natural growth, and aging. So, don’t let your investment in orthodontic treatment go to waste – make sure you protect it with a retainer! Trust us, you won’t regret it.
