Discover Your Orthodontic Options
Talking specifically on the orthodontic part of it, a lot of times you think you’re seeing mainly kids, but I would say we see a nice variety probably half and a half of kids versus adults. And not just is orthodontics, it solves two problems a lot of times just cosmetically for patients, but then also function being if your bites off or you got a lot of crowding, or rotations, or issues. Long term, it can cause bone loss and gives people, not reasons, but causes reasons for teeth to go missing, or to have long-term functional…again functioning cosmetics. And here we do everything from clear aligners, Invisalign, to brackets and wires on kids.
Orthodontics is one of those problems that, you know, people come in aware that they’ve got issues, so it’s a lot of times we’re posed with, what can you do to help? And it’s always a very straightforward answer. We can… Most of the time, as long as there’s not skeletal issues, you know, give you a nice, pretty, functional smile. Kids typically is what we tend to do brackets and wires due to compliance issues. And then adults a lot of times it’s they’ve had braces and now their teeth…they’ve had some relapses and some crowding, Working with aligners, we do have an orthodontist we work with closely that if there’s a more difficult case, or where got some concerns, we again, we work with closely here in the office, and like I said, accomplish a lot of really good results.
