The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment.
Braces aren't just for kids anymore. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults.
Whether it's metal braces, clear ceramic braces, or invisible braces, Crowe and McGuire Orthodontics utilizes the most, comfortable, efficient, and technologically advanced braces available.
Your initial exam will last approximately 30 minutes. At this appointment we will provide an evaluation that will outline your existing orthodontic problems and proposed treatment.
For most situations, common sense will tell you what to avoid. Hard foods, sticky foods and foods high in sugar must be avoided. Nail biting, pencil and pen chewing and chewing on foreign objects should also be avoided.
