Create A Smile to Last a Lifetime
Orthodontists specialize in treating misaligned or improper bites. In many cases an orthodontist will treat alignment issues with braces, especially in children and young adults.
Often children will be referred to an orthodontist as early as age 7 to evaluate any problems. As children lose their baby teeth, problems with misalignment usually begin to occur. That’s why early treatment is so important in preventing future dental problems.
At Colorado Dental Group, our on-staff orthodontist can work together with your dentist if you or your child needs treatment.
Two of the most common orthodontic treatments are:
Braces: This is the most common treatment option for children, and braces are commonly implemented between the ages of 9 and 14. Most children have braces for at least a year, but total treatment time varies.
Invisalign: Invisalign is a popular appliance for adults who want straighter teeth. Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes it a more flexible treatment method. This treatment is not recommended for children because it requires self-discipline, as aligners must be worn 20-22 hours out of every day.
