The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child first visit an orthodontist by age seven or earlier if a problem is detected by parents, the family dentist, or physician. When you visit early, the orthodontist can determine when the best time will be to start treatment.   Treatment is often easier if started early enough since it can eliminate the need for removal of permanent teeth or jaw surgery. 

Recently, the number of adult orthodontic patients has been on the rise. For those who can benefit from orthodontics, age is not a factor. Adults who have teeth and healthy supporting structures are never too old. Increasing numbers of adults are taking advantage of the lifelong benefits of orthodontics. These are people who have made the choice to spend the rest of their lives with an attractive, healthy smile and the confidence that it brings. The latest technology offers many benefits to adult patients. For example, we have clear braces that are hardly noticeable. When they are taken care of they work just as well as the metal braces. Orthodontic care is a fun, positive experience for everyone! If you would like to see what type of benefits orthodontic care can provide adults with, please call Dr. Verma’s office to set up a complimentary consultation.

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment with braces generally begins between the ages of 11 and 13, when most of the permanent teeth are in place. Phase II treatment also begins at these approximate ages when early treatment has been indicated. We use the most modern braces and wire to achieve excellent results in the shortest time with the least discomfort.
For those patients who have clear indications for early intervention, early treatment presents the opportunity to:
  • Influence jaw growth in a positive manner.
  • Harmonize width of the dental arches.
  • Improve eruption patterns.
  • Lower risk of trauma to protruded upper incisors.
  • Correct harmful oral habits.
  • Simplify and/or shorten treatment time for later corrective orthodontics.
  • Reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth.
  • Improve some speech problems.
  • Preserve or gain space for erupting permanent teeth.
  • Improve aesthetics and self-esteem at an earlier age.
Early orthodontic screening can lead to simpler, more effective treatment for dental patients and greater peace of mind.
