Orthodontics for Children & Teens

 

The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. Early detection and treatment gives your child the edge - a much better chance for natural and normal development. By working with the natural growth instead of against it, we can prevent problems from becoming worse, and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles!

 

Studies have shown that people who have straight teeth are more likely to smile more. This leads to a greater self esteem which may lead to a more fulfilling life.

 

Dr. McCarty & Dr. Ellis offer various types of orthodontic care including:

 

Clear Correct®

Clear aligners like Clear Correct wear like mouth guards and are replaced periodically to quickly move your teeth into alignment. This tends to be the most affordable treatment option with the benefit of being able to remove them to eat. Being clear, Clear Correct is hardly even noticable while your’re wearing them!

 

Clear Braces

Ceramic braces are clear, allowing all the benefits of traditional metal braces while being  far less noticable.

 

Traditional Braces

Standard metal braces are actually made of very sophisticated metals and their technology has advanced significantly over the past twenty years. We recommend traditional braces to all our patients while allowing you to choose the option that’s right for you.

 

Retention

After orthodontic treatment, it’s important to wear your retainer to keep teeth from shifting.
