Our orthodontists understand that everyone deserves a beautiful, confident smile and that br  aces are not just for teens.

Exams And Orthodontic Treatment For Children

The expert team at CFFS Braces and the American Association of Orthodontics suggest that children should have their first office visit to the orthodontist by the age of seven. This is the time when permanent teeth have usually erupted but bones are still growing, so some conditions, such as crowding, may be easier to address. At this age, your orthodontist can analyze your child’s bite to see if there are any problems that could be treated early. By catching small problems with early treatment for your child’s bite before they become large ones, our doctors can potentially help save you lots of money down the road due to faster and less complicated treatment. Not all children will need treatment, but some of the common issues CFSS Braces orthodontists can help include:

Mouth breathing

Finger or thumb sucking at a later age.

A hard time chewing food.

Early or late loss of baby teeth.

Crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth.

Teeth that come together abnormally or not at all.

Jaws and teeth that aren’t proportionate.

If early treatment is needed, it will give our orthodontists a chance to:

Improve the eruption pattern of teeth

Positively influence jaw growth

Reduce the need for tooth extractions

Correct harmful habits

Decrease the length and difficulty of future treatment

Improve self-esteem

Braces or Invisalign Teen for Teenagers

Invisalign Teen

While Invisalign is becoming more and more popular for adults, a new version of this clear aligner treatment is now available and made just for teenagers. Invisalign Teen uses a system of clear removable aligners that is perfect for the teen who isn’t crazy about the idea of wearing visible metal braces.

With Invisalign Teen, you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods during treatment and won’t have any problems cleaning your teeth because you simply remove the aligners when eating and when brushing & flossing. This version of Invisalign gives your teen and you an indicator that reveals how long your teen is wearing their aligners, along with special features that hold space for a tooth still coming in. But perhaps best of all, is the fact that Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible. This means you can improve your smile without ever having to worry about what you look like with appliances on your teeth! 

Traditional Braces 

There are some disadvantages to Invisalign, however, and that’s why many of our patients still rely on traditional or clear braces. Wearing braces is easier, more comfortable, and even better looking than ever before. Your teen orthodontic treatment is quicker than ever before but will depend on any early treatment you have had, the severity of your orthodontic problems and the pace at which your particular set of teeth move. 

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Braces aren’t just for kids! In reality, one of every five orthodontic patients is an adult. Your skilled orthodontists at CFSS Braces create new, confident smiles for adults every day. Orthodontic treatment involves applying a constant force to the teeth using orthodontic appliances like fixed braces or removable aligners, to prompt the teeth to move. Because of this, it’s true that certain orthodontic problems are better treated during childhood while the teeth and jaws are still developing, but most problems with the alignment of the teeth can be corrected at any age using braces or aligners. If you’re unhappy about how your teeth look because they’re crooked, gapped or crowded, an orthodontist can straighten your teeth regardless if you’re 24 or 94! Two things to keep in mind if you are an adult hoping for braces or Invisalign treatment: 

Make sure you are maintaining good oral health. Healthy gums are imperative before beginning braces treatment.

Changes to the actual jaw structure are not possible with orthodontic appliances because your jaw is already set.
