Orthodontics For All Ages
Whether you’re looking for orthodontic options for you or your child, Adirondack Orthodontics can help create a smile that will last a lifetime. Our team is here to ensure that you and your family are equipped with the right treatment solution.
Orthodontics For Kids
As the parent or guardian of a young child, you want to do everything you can to set your child up for a happy and healthy future. You already know it’s vital to bring your child to the dentist and teach them good brushing and flossing habits. Did you know early visits to the orthodontist can be just as helpful?
Diagnosing a developing issue early allows us to intervene faster, preventing the problem from growing worse. While chances are good that your child will still need later orthodontic treatment, we can often reduce the need to remove adult teeth.
You probably won’t be able to spot every warning sign or potential problem with your child’s teeth – that’s what dentists and orthodontists are for. However, you should watch out for these signs:
- Difficulty biting and chewing
- Mouth breathing
- Speech impediments
- Protruding teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Thumb and/or finger-sucking past age 3
Orthodontics For Teens
During the teenage years, your child is starting to settle into who they really are. Favorite hobbies, good and bad habits, even their appearance – while your teen will surely change his or her mind a dozen times in the next few years, you can see the big picture starting to take shape. The same goes for your teen’s teeth and smile. His or her permanent teeth have likely all come in, so they are ready for full treatment. It’s time to create the smile your teen will enjoy for a lifetime!
When it comes to teeth, we find that most teens (and their parents and guardians) have the same goals: a beautiful smile that’s stable and provides optimal function. Teens want to be able to smile fully in yearbook pictures and, of course, selfies! Once your teen goes through orthodontic treatment, they want to keep that smile forever.
Which treatment option is right will depend on your teen’s lifestyle, personality, and goals, not to mention your budget. Medical necessity rarely dictates the best choice of treatment. In fact, most of the time, the duration of treatment will be the same no matter which option you choose.
Orthodontics For Adults
Perhaps you never had the opportunity to get orthodontic work done as a teenager, or maybe your formerly straight smile has become crooked over the years. Whatever the case, we’re here to correct those problems and help you enjoy the smile you’ve always wanted.
At Adirondack Orthodontics, we know it is never too late for orthodontic work. In fact, adult orthodontic treatment is more common than you think. For that reason, we offer a variety of discreet, easy, and affordable options that are perfect for busy adults.
During your initial consultation, we’ll thoroughly review your goals and motivation for treatment. With your needs first in our minds, and after an expert diagnosis of your teeth, we will create a plan that meets your expectations and allows you to live your daily life with ease and convenience.
