Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is the use of dental braces to move or alter teeth or underlying bone. The treatment is favorable for ages 8 to 14 years, while tooth growth is still occurring, and it is recommended that children have an orthodontic evaluation at the age of 7. The teeth are generally repositioned by fixed braces. It’s important because crowding of teeth can ultimately require extraction of some teeth. Retainers are often necessary after braces are removed, especially when treating adults.
