At Flagsmile Dental, we do a lot of orthodontic work for patients of all ages, and we have full capabilities of providing complete service on-site in most cases.
Most people think of orthodontics for teenagers, and that is the most common group to get braces. But there are screening and prevention techniques we can offer children who still have their baby teeth to help their adult teeth come in straight naturally. And we even have senior citizen patients who choose orthodontics so they can finally have the smile they’ve always wanted.
We recommend orthodontic screenings for our patients by about 6 years of age. In many cases, there are things we can do to encourage straight adult teeth, including an expander at around 6 or 7 years of age as well as exercises to help the muscles of the face, jaw and tongue work together optimally.
If a patient needs braces, we try to keep all the healthy teeth we can. Removing teeth doesn’t always create more room in the jaw, and it usually doesn’t address the underlying cause of the crooked teeth or bite. If the underlying issue is that there is not enough room in the jaw, then a better solution is to create more space. This helps with the teeth, of course, and it also can help kids speak and breathe better. When we create room in the mouth, it creates healthier airways and can reduce the risk of sleep apnoea or jaw joint issues later on.
Whatever your age, we start with a free orthodontic consultation to assess your goals. We’ll explain your options, which may include expanders in addition to braces. Invisalign clear aligners are an option for many people, and we also offer white braces. Your dentist will explain your options and help you understand the process so you know what to expect every step of the way.
The costs of Invisalign and braces are typically comparable, and we also offer payment plans through ZipMoney.
