All Ages Accepted
Everyone deserves a great smile, no matter how old or young they are. We’re proud to offer a full range of orthodontics for children, teens, and adults.
Orthodontics for Children
While there’s no minimum age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child receive their first orthodontic evaluation by around the age of seven. By this time, most children will have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth, making it easier for orthodontists like Dr. David Ross to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems before they have the chance to become more severe.Learn More
Orthodontics for Teens
If you have a teen who recently learned braces can improve their smile, you probably have lots of questions. You may be feeling nervous or worried when you think about beginning the process.
But there’s no need to worry – bulky, uncomfortable metal braces are a thing of the past. Today’s braces are smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever. They also come in a variety of styles, materials, and even colors.
One of the biggest questions on your teen’s mind before having braces put on is often “how long will I have to wear these?” Although there’s no one-size-fits-all answer, we can estimate the amount of time it will take to treat their smile with braces based on a few key factors.Learn More
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teens. In fact, one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21.
Many adults are choosing to receive treatment later in life because they understand how important it is to maintain their oral health, they want to feel better about their overall appearance, or both. If you’ve experienced any of the following issues, orthodontic treatment may be for you:
- A bad bite (malocclusion) causing your teeth to fit together incorrectly
- The teeth are too crowded or spaced too far apart
- Any abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
- Or simply a desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile
Although the thought of wearing braces as an adult can be intimidating, there are several options that are discreet and effective. At David Ross Orthodontics, we offer ceramic braces, which blend in closely with your own smile, and Invisalign, a clear aligner system that is nearly invisible.Learn More
