Our orthodontic team at Sea Breeze Dental office is child-friendly but can help parents get the smiles of their dreams as well. Correct tooth alignment is important to aesthetics as well as the prevention of gum disease, improved function, and the prevention of early tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment lasts for 18-30 months using braces in order to achieve full treatment, but occasionally this can be reduced to 6-12 months.
Children should receive exams by age 7 in order to screen for problems that require early intervention and careful growth and eruption monitoring. The earlier children are seen, the less likely the extraction of teeth, but missing the perfect time isn’t the end of the world.
Adults also have the opportunity to receive their dream smile without the embarrassment of wearing metal braces. We offer several different kinds of invisible solutions.
