In summer we wedge in appointments for the kids; a physical for fall sports, an eye exam, plus a semi-annual dental cleaning and checkup. And this could be the summer your kid embraces braces. There’s something about your kids orthodontics that triggers deeply held emotions! Are you old enough to remember those coming-of-age 80s movies where some awkward teenager sat on the bus sporting what appeared to be full-body orthodontia? Did those scenes or the warnings of being locked forever in your first kiss with another metal mouth deter you from getting braces as a kid?
As a parent, we want to keep our kids happy and healthy, right?
So one of the questions we ask is "How do I know if my child needs braces?" One of the most common questions we hear is:

Braces aren’t just for kids and teens. Whether you’re an adult who needed braces as a kid and never got them, or you’ve developed misaligned teeth as an adult, braces can improve your smile and oral health. They can straighten crooked teeth, align your bite, and make it easier to keep teeth clean.
If you’re thinking about getting braces for yourself or for your child, the first thing you need to know is that you can visit us free! Initial consultations with our orthodontists are free and help you get a sense of what it’s like to work with us.
Braces aren’t just for kids and teens anymore. We are seeing more adults wanting to correct their teeth as they get older, but they don’t want the traditional metal braces. And that’s perfectly OK because with Invisalign, the metal is gone and you have clear braces and removable aligners. And, Invisalign CAN be used by teenagers as well!
