WE USE ADVANCED
Our philosophy is simple: The sooner we recognize an orthodontic problem, the more successfully and efficiently we can treat it. We believe you can have beautiful teeth at any age. While the right time to begin orthodontic treatment varies by person, you can begin care whether you’re 8 or 80.
Whatever your age, early diagnosis by your orthodontist is important. Dr. Ensley recommends an initial orthodontic exam by the age of eight to benchmark for the future and identify possible risks. Orthodontic care for children is generally started when most permanent teeth are in place, usually at age eleven or twelve.
More and more, adults are turning to orthodontic treatment options for both health and cosmetic reasons. With the advent of discreet and flexible treatments, such as the Invisalign® system, you can achieve a healthier smile without the metal wires and bands, generally in less time than conventional treatments. Back in the day, when people sought out solutions for teeth straightening or a cosmetic dental treatment, the image they had of orthodontia included uncomfortable procedures and a costly, drawn out treatment program.
