TREATMENT FOR YOUNGER KIDS

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this optimal time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontics suggests that children be seen for an orthodontic consultation by the age of 7. At that age, we can advise of any functional orthodontic problem and when the appropriate timing for treatment is indicated (or not). As far as first phase interceptive orthodontic treatment goes, the truth is we aren't particularly concerned if the teeth are just crooked at an early age (still has many baby teeth left and a few adult teeth in place) unless the crooked teeth are resulting in social issues for the child. We DO care at this time that FUNCTIONALLY the teeth come together properly - (cross-bites, giant overbites, teeth that stick out so far that there would be a risk of fracture, not enough room for teeth to come in, or close to the proper position). These types of problems we often address at an early age. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but with a complete orthodontic examination and periodic monitoring we can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin any needed treatment. We provide this initial exam and monitoring at no cost to you, so please take advantage of this opportunity for your child's sake!

Options For Teens & Adults

Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile. About 1/3 of our patients are adults who recognize the health and aesthetic benefits of orthodontic treatment. This is not the same kind of orthodontics that was available years ago; with the latest techniques and technology, including Damon, Invisalign and lingual (hidden behind the teeth) braces, we can provide you with orthodontic treatment options that fit your lifestyle and your goals. With the extensive Invisalign treatment experience of Drs. Bach and Grazina, the majority of patients that can be treated with braces can also be treated with Invisalign, so there are lots of ways for adults to get a beautiful smile! Starting on the road to a confident, beautiful smile is only an appointment away.

Invisible Treatment Options

Drs. Bach and Grazina have over 20 years experience in treating patients with Invisalign and have lectured extensively to doctors across the country sharing their expertise. Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted – without braces.

"Hidden", or lingual braces are attached behind the teeth and are therefore "invisible" when you smile. They are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth and have wires that are shaped specifically for your mouth. Lingual braces are a very aesthetic option for athletes, models, actors and actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals whose lifestyle would be affected by other treatment options.


Accelerate Your Treatment

While all of our treatment options are faster than traditional orthodontics, we’re now offering two incredible technologies to speed up your treatment - because our priority isn’t to get you INTO braces or Invisalign, we want to get you OUT of braces or Invisalign with the best result - in the least amount of time.   We can add Acceledent or Propel to your treatment regardless of the type of orthodontic treatment you choose. You use Acceledent for 20 minutes a day and its gentle micro-pulses (vibrations) stimulate the bones in your jaw so that your teeth move into the desired position up to 40% faster. It’s comfortable and easy to use.   With Propel, a quick in-office procedure jump-starts tooth movement and can be used on one or two stubborn teeth or for your entire smile.
