Orthodontics for Children
For parents in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, it's not always easy to know if your child may need orthodontic treatment. Even teeth that look straight may be hiding a deeper problem with a child’s bite.
While there is no exact age that all children should begin orthodontic treatment, Dr. Daniel Noll, Dr. Allison Jacobs, Dr. Paige Rechtin, Dr. Kevin Ison and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that your child should visit the orthodontist around age seven.
What Is an Early Evaluation?
Early treatment at Orthodontic Specialists helps your child enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile in the future.
The earlier we catch problems with your child’s bite, the simpler it is to fix. The results are often better than if we wait until your child is older, and it tends to require less work for you and your child.
We may not have to do anything at this age, other than monitor your child’s mouth. However, if we continue to watch your child, we can start treatment right away!
Why Early Evaluation?
Bring your child to Orthodontic Specialists for a free consultation to find out if your kiddo needs treatment, and exactly when to start.
This check-up may reveal that your child's bite is fine and braces aren't necessary. In some cases, our doctors may identify a developing problem, but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development.
Then, when indicated, begin treatment at the appropriate time for your child at Orthodontic Specialists. In other cases, our doctors might find a problem that can benefit from early treatment.
In some cases, our doctors will be able to achieve beautiful results that would be much more difficult to achieve if the face and jaws finish growing. Early treatment at Orthodontic Specialists may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter, simpler, and less expensive.
Orthodontics for Teens
The teen years (between the ages of 12 and 16) are the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Orthodontic Specialists because that’s when most permanent teeth are in place. Many teenagers aren’t too happy when they’re told that they might need braces, but orthodontic treatment is a lot better than most people think.
Orthodontics has advanced a lot in recent years. Now, there’s a range of comfortable treatments ranging from stylish to subtle so that your teen can get the smiles they deserve without worrying about what others will think.
All About Teen Orthodontics
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Noll, Dr. Rechtin, Dr. Ison and Dr. Jacobs can easily recognize issues with spacing, crowding, bite and alignment with teen patients. Around this age, your teenager’s bone and jaw structures are developed enough to best facilitate orthodontic treatment at our offices across the greater Cincinnati area and Northern Kentucky.
Braces today come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors, making life with braces much easier, more comfortable and even more stylish than in the past. The newer styles of braces are more comfortable and fashionable so that all teenagers can have smiles they are proud to show off.
Newer treatment options, like Invisalign® clear aligners from Orthodontic Specialists, provide low-profile alignment solutions that let you do you.
Invest in Your Teen Today
During your free consultation, our doctors will be happy to discuss the benefits of treatment, as well as the risk of putting off treatment until a later date. If you have any questions about braces for teenagers, don’t hesitate to contact Orthodontic Specialists, and our friendly staff will be happy to assist you.
Orthodontics for Adults
No matter your age, you deserve a smile that you’re proud to show off. You might not realize that at Orthodontic Specialists, we can straighten your smile, no matter your age.
Braces aren’t just for teens anymore—Dr. Noll, Dr. Ison, Dr. Jacobs and Dr. Rechtin can give you the smile you deserve!
A Beautiful Smile Builds Confidence
Here at Orthodontic Specialists, we work hard to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We offer many different treatments that can give you the smile you want, no matter how old you are.
Orthodontic treatments are not just for your smile, even though treatments can dramatically improve your appearance and self-esteem. Fixing your teeth can also dramatically change your oral health. When you have crooked teeth or a malocclusion, you may have some oral health problems such as disease and tartar buildup.
As newer technologies are designed, it gets easier to get the smile you deserve. You won’t have to come in for as many follow-ups and may have a better smile even quicker than you thought possible.
If you want to improve your smile, we always start with a thorough examination and X-rays. We will then discuss your many options, including different forms of braces, aligners and retainers.
We will also talk about the treatment plan, what you should expect and the cost. If your insurance will cover some of the costs, we are glad to help you figure it out.
You Deserve a Smile You Love
We understand that you have a busy schedule, and we work with you to make sure each office visit is as convenient as possible. You won’t believe how quickly you can see a change in your smile with the appropriate treatment.
It’s never too late to have a smile that you’ll love to show off. Don’t hesitate to contact us today to discuss your many options!
