Minty Smile Dental is proud to offer the best and most advanced orthodontic services for our patients. Having a show-stopping smile is one of the most desired features in the world, and with orthodontics, you’ll be well on your way to having perfect, straight teeth.
How does orthodontic treatment straighten teeth?
Orthodontics is the dental specialty that involves correcting teeth that are improperly positioned, often using braces. Our orthodontists frequently treat malocclusions which are otherwise known as bad bites that can cause health issues such as difficulty chewing, poor oral hygiene, and in some cases, bacterial infections in those hard to reach places. A large focus of orthodontic treatment is correcting and properly developing the facial bones and jaw so your mouth and teeth can align more easily. Whether you need headgear, plates, or just traditional braces, we’re eager to find the best orthodontic treatment plan for you.
What’s the best age to get braces? Am I too old to get my teeth straightened?
We hear, “Am I too old to get my teeth straightened?” all the time, and the answer is absolutely not! We have orthodontic patients of all ages, and as a general family dentistry practice, we have the ability to treat your entire family under one roof. Whether it’s your first time seeking orthodontic treatment or you are wanting to correct previous orthodontic work, we have a treatment plan for you. We recommend that children to come in for their first orthodontic consultation around ages 7 or 8 to ensure that their facial muscles and mouths are growing properly.
Before treatment, it is crucial to discuss your desired results with your dentist at Minty Smiles Dental to identify the best treatment plan for you. Each cosmetic dentistry treatment plan varies in cost, complexity, and results. The current condition of your teeth is a major factor in finding the right treatment.
