No Such Thing as Age

elder-smileA healthy bite and a great smile are as important at age 70, as at age 7. Even though adults are no longer growing, they can also enjoy improvements that come from orthodontic treatment. Especially children from ages 7-10 can benefit from early preventative orthodontic measures, such as the removal of certain problematic baby teeth, or the insertion of a space maintainer.

If you recognize or have any of these symptoms, it might be time to schedule a free consultation at Jensen Orthodontics:

  • Premature Loss of Baby Teeth
  • Cheek or Tongue Biting
  • Delayed Loss of Baby Teeth
  • Difficulty Chewing, Biting, or Swallowing
  • An Open-Mouth Posture
  • Sucking of the Thumb or Fingers
  • Jaws that Make Clicking or Cracking Sounds
  • Speech Difficulties
  • Protruding Teeth
  • A Lower Jaw that Shifts Sideways or Forward
  • Inability to Comfortably Close the Lips
Your age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. Braces come in many different shapes and colors, from clear, transparent braces to colored braces for children of any age. Patients are encouraged to change their colors at every visit. Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your dental health at any age.
