Give your child the confidence to excel in life.
Your smile is your greeting to the world. Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked teeth or spaces between the teeth may be a source to embarrassment or self-consciousness. Improperly aligned teeth and jaws, called a ‘malocclusion’, also can lead to tooth decay and host of sometimes painful dental disorders. The good news is that orthodontic treatment can correct malocclusions and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that’s good for life.
Most orthodontic patients begin active treatment between the ages of 9 and 14.
