We’ll evaluate your smile and provide our best recommendations for orthodontic care!

Early Treatment

Did you know that many times children can be saved from extensive orthodontic treatment by working on their teeth alignment at a young age? We recommend scheduling a consultation for your child around the age of seven. If there are areas that can be addressed, early treatment can save you time and money on your child’s orthodontic care when they reach their teen years. Every child’s smile is different, so your child’s orthodontist will need to evaluate their smile to provide the best recommendations for guiding their teeth alignment as they grow. Simple yet effective techniques, such as space maintainers, can keep their teeth from shifting as new teeth are erupting. If no early treatment is recommended, your child’s orthodontist can continue to monitor their smile as it develops.

Adolescent Treatment

Between eleven to fifteen years of age are the most common ages for orthodontic treatment in the adolescent stage. Typically, all permanent teeth have erupted by the age of twelve. This is a good time to have your child’s smile reassessed for orthodontic treatment. By this age, their orthodontist will be able to see any current or potential alignment problems such as uneven bite, crooked teeth and space between teeth. Orthodontic treatment in the adolescent years can improve your child’s oral health and also boost their self-esteem. 

Adult Treatment

It’s never too late to work towards a more confident smile! At Georgetown Orthodontics, many of our patients are adults. We offer several options in orthodontic treatment including Invisalign, ceramic braces and In-Ovation R. There are ways to discreetly work towards your goals without bringing extra attention to your smile during the straightening process. Many types of orthodontic treatment also produce fast results! If you are interested in improving your smile, a consultation can provide you with valuable information concerning your teeth alignment. We’ll examine your teeth, discuss your goals and provide a customized treatment plan that shows you the best ways to work towards a better, beautiful smile!
