FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
A commitment to a beautiful, healthy smile is one of the best investments you can make in your future. Better oral health and an improved self-image are just some of the benefits provided by orthodontic treatment.
Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is always an optimal time to start treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. Dr. Levin and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that the initial orthodontic evaluation occur no later than age 7, or about the time of eruption of the upper permanent front teeth. At this early age, orthodontic treatment is usually not necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. Dr. Levin provides comprehensive initial examinations to children – as well as adults – at no charge.
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and adults are in the unique position to fully appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. Did you know that one out of every five patients now in orthodontic treatment is over 21? Did you also know that currently the largest growing segment of the population seeking orthodontic treatment is adult males? This market trend is, in part, due to the fact that there are so many more discreet treatment options available today, including clear ceramic brackets and Invisalign®. Be sure to ask Dr. Levin about what would be best for you.
For some adults, certain treatment complexities or outcome limitations are a reality. Dr. Levin would be happy to evaluate your particular situation at your complimentary consultation. She will then design a completely customized treatment plan tailored to meet your individual needs and goals, with your overall oral health a top priority.
