Why Age 7
Our doctors, and the American Association of Orthodontists, encourage an early orthodontic evaluation when your child is 7 years old. This is the best time to catch any subtle problems that may develop into more complex treatment if not addressed at a young age. Our doctors will assess the bite and if your child has adequate spacing for all the permanent teeth yet to come. With our specialized imaging, we can evaluate many important aspects that are not visible in the mouth such as missing teeth, extra teeth, impacted teeth, correct positioning of teeth, and spacing for the teeth. Early treatment, which occurs when some baby teeth are still present, can prevent small issues from becoming bigger problems and help achieve better results.
We make orthodontic treatment as an adult quick, easy and affordable! Whether your teeth are not straight because you stopped wearing your retainer or because you never had the opportunity to get orthodontic treatment when you were younger, we can help! You deserve a smile that you love and the confidence that comes along with it! At Dr. Wax Orthodontics you choose between braces and Invisalign. It is never too late to begin your orthodontic journey.
