WHEN TO SEE THE ORTHODONTIST
It might be time to visit the orthodontist for any number of reasons to include: crooked teeth, crowded teeth, an overbite, an underbite, malocclusion (bite problem), teeth grinding (bruxism), sleep apnea, jaw pain (TMJ), teeth spacing, and more. Some of these conditions may be purely cosmetic, but some can adversely affect overall functional dental health.
People of all ages can undergo orthodontia to improve the appearance and/or the function of their teeth. To best learn if you're a candidate for orthodontics treatment or not is to visit an orthodontist. Many orthodontists offer an initial orthodontics evaluation. The evaluation should include a visual examination and X-rays to be able to see the health and status of all of the teeth and the jaw bone.
At Skelton Orthodontics, PLLC, initial orthodontics evaluations are offered free of charge.
Braces Done Right
When it comes to braces, most people share the same concerns: Are they ugly? Do they hurt? How long will I have to wear them? Are they expensive? If you have any of these questions, don't worry ... we're here to help you determine what's going to work best to get you the results you're looking for.
At Skelton Orthodontics, PLLC, our slogan is "Your smile is our signature." This means that above all, we take a complete and comprehensive approach to orthodontics to get you a beautiful smile with long-lasting results. In other words, we don't look good unless you look good.
And where other orthodontists might take short cuts which can compromise the effectiveness and permanence of treatment, we don't. Why? Because not every set of teeth is the same, and so not every treatment will be the same. Doctor Skelton is highly trained and experienced at determining what kind of braces and treatment plan will work best for you or your loved one.
Also know that we use the latest, state-of-the-art technology such as safer, low-radiation digital imaging and photography using Dolphin Imaging and Management.
