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!

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.
Did you know that you must wear your retainer to keep your teeth straight after orthodontics?
Here at Dr. Wax Orthodontics we have three simple tips to help keep your beautiful smile straight.
- Make sure you wear your retainers. Full time for the first year and then night time only after that. Night time for a lifetime!
- Always keep a backup retainer! Whether it’s because you lost it, break it, your dog eats it, or it just starts to wear down, having a backup ready to go is a must!
