Everyone deserves to have a great smile

Whatever age you are, there are so many reasons why you should consider orthodontic treatment at Elevate Orthodontics. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression – and your smile is a big part of that! Who wouldn’t want to look and feel more confident every time they smile? Having a healthy, beautiful smile can benefit your health both physically and emotionally for years to come.

The earlier, the better

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends scheduling your child’s initial orthodontic exam as early as age seven, so your orthodontist can identify any existing or potential concerns with your child’s teeth or jaw. Many of these issues can be treated early, eliminating the need for costly or more serious treatments later in life.

A picture is worth a thousand words

Most children have a mix of both primary (baby) teeth and permanent teeth at this age. When you schedule a free initial evaluation for your child, we’ll use digital X-rays, a 3D mouth scan, and photographs of their developing teeth to fully assess their needs – all at no charge. If early treatment is needed but your child’s permanent teeth have not all come in yet, we may suggest a two-phase approach. Or better yet, we may see that your child’s mouth looks great! No matter what, you can always count on us to give you an honest diagnosis.

Great news! One phase of treatment often does the trick

A single-phase orthodontic approach that begins when your child has all their permanent teeth eliminates the need for additional years of treatment. Every child’s path to a beautiful smile is different, but you can trust Elevate Orthodontics to recommend treatments at the optimal time for your child.

Using the two-phase approach

If two-phase treatment is necessary, the first phase will address your child’s tooth and jaw problems in hopes of preventing more serious issues from developing in the future. This first phase may take 12-18 months to complete, but it often decreases the amount of time needed in the second phase. Once all their permanent teeth are in, it’s time to begin your child’s second phase of treatment, which typically lasts up to two years. Think of it as making the effort now to avoid more serious treatments later.

Teens now have options

Orthodontic treatment is practically a rite of passage for teens. What better time to give your teen a beautiful smile that improves their self-esteem and builds their confidence? With most of their permanent teeth already in, the teenage years are an ideal time to get started with orthodontic treatment, especially those who feel self-conscious about their less-than-perfect smile.
Treatment with braces is the most popular choice for teens. In fact, recent advances have made today’s braces smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever.
Invisalign® clear aligners are another option for some teens, offering treatment that’s nearly transparent. One key benefit that teens enjoy is that aligners can be completely removed for sports, playing a musical instrument, or eating their favorite foods.

How long will I have to wear braces or Invisalign clear aligners?

Your teen may move at a snail’s pace when you ask them to clean their room, but their teeth are another story! The average orthodontic treatment time for teens is just 24 months – some teens may need more time, and others will need less. The team at Elevate Orthodontics will keep you and your teen informed every step of the way.

Orthodontic treatment is the answer

In addition to giving you a gorgeous smile, orthodontic treatment can improve your oral health and functionality by correcting dental issues known as malocclusions. Here are some examples:

What’s the difference between a dentist and a board-certified orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dental specialist–in other words, a dentist who has completed years of additional education and training focused on the safe and healthy movement of teeth and jaws. Beyond the additional training, only board-certified orthodontists have completed the rigorous written and clinical examinations to exhibit their dedication to the highest standards of orthodontic care.

Are you special enough to deserve a specialist? Absolutely! Dr. Jared Holloway is a board-certified orthodontist of the American Board of Orthodontics, and the expert  team at Elevate Orthodontics has the knowledge and expertise to most accurately diagnose and treat every patient with the absolute best in orthodontic care. You will experience exceptional service not just from our trusted orthodontist, but from every member of our team. We are all here to make you smile.
