Did you know?
"WHAT IS AN ORTHODONTIST?"
Orthodontist is a dental specialist in moving teeth and guiding jaw and facial development (dentofacial orthopedics). An orthodontist receives an additional 2-3 years of training beyond dental school.
"I'M TOO OLD FOR BRACES."
That's not true! According to American Association of Orthodontists, 1 in 4 orthodontic patients is an adult. Nowadays, there are options for invisible orthodontics that are more comfortable and less noticeable. Orthodontic treatment offers health benefits for anyone regardless of age.
"MY CHILD IS TOO YOUNG FOR BRACES."
Your child may be too young for braces, however it is always good to check with an orthodontist at early age. Certain jaw or dental issues are best treated at young age to prevent potential further damage and give better outcome at the later age. Timing is very important!
