Orthodontics for Children
A Proactive Approach to Lifelong Dental Health
Starting orthodontic treatment early can be a game-changer for your child's dental health. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a first check-up by age seven, allowing us to detect and address any potential orthodontic issues before they escalate. Early treatment may prevent more serious problems down the line and can make any future orthodontic treatment shorter and less complicated. At Smiles from the Hart Orthodontics, we offer a welcoming environment where children feel comfortable, fostering a positive association with dental health that will serve them well into adulthood.
Orthodontics for Teens
Embrace the Change, Enjoy the Outcome
Navigating the teen years can be challenging, with school, sports, social events, and more demanding their time and energy. Orthodontic treatment should support, not hinder, their busy lives. At our practice, we offer a variety of flexible orthodontic solutions, from traditional braces to virtually invisible clear aligners, that can seamlessly integrate into your teen's lifestyle. We empower our patients with knowledge and encourage them to participate actively in their treatment process, creating a sense of ownership and dedication to their dental health.
Orthodontics for Adults
It's Never Too Late for a Great Smile
Around 20% of all orthodontic patients today are adults - proving it's never too late to get the smile you deserve. Whether you're seeking to enhance your appearance, improve oral function, or boost your self-confidence, orthodontic treatment can offer significant benefits. At Smiles from the Hart Orthodontics, we understand the unique considerations of adult patients, from the need for discretion to accommodating busy schedules. With options like Invisalign and clear braces, we offer effective, low-profile treatments that won't disrupt your personal or professional life.
