There are some types of dental care services that require the expertise of an orthodontist rather than a general dentist. Charlotte area’s Braces by Bird can answer all of your questions about orthodontic treatment and help you explore your options when considering braces. It can be encouraging to discover that today’s treatments include advanced methods of straightening teeth without the need for metal brackets and wires.
Early Treatment Benefits
With their orthodontic care, teenagers fitted have some advantages over adults, although orthodontists agree that it’s never too late to have your teeth straightened.
While the teen years are typically considered as the ideal time to look into braces, seven years of age is widely considered the optimal age for an assessment.
Treatment may not be necessary at this early age, however more and more experts are noting that appropriately timed screening increases their young patients’ chances for a perfect smile, because the perfect time for interception can be established.
Interceptive treatment can create room for crowded teeth that are yet to erupt, guide teeth into proper alignment, prevent shifting of already-erupted teeth by reserving space for teeth that are yet come in, and reduce the need for extractions that in the past, was the only way to achieve more room in the dental arch for adult teeth.
Adult Treatment Benefits
