Straighten Your Teeth and Broaden Your Smile
An orthodontist corrects jaws and teeth that are improperly positioned, which is common in both children and adults.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children should see an orthodontist for the first time at age 7. This allows the orthodontist to discover any early issues with the alignment of the teeth and jaw. Early detection of issues can help put forth a treatment plan that can prevent future difficulties.
If you want straighter teeth, you have these options:
Braces: More often, braces are a recommended solution for children. Treatment time varies, but most children have braces for 1-2 years and start treatment between the ages of 9 and 14.
Invisalign: Invisalign isn’t recommended for children, as it requires more self-discipline. Adults often choose Invisalign for straightening teeth, as it is less visible than braces and the treatment time is shorter. Invisalign offers the patient more flexibility.
