Braces are often associated with making cosmetic changes in a person’s smile, but braces can be used for both cosmetic and medical reasons. Braces and other orthodontic appliances can be applied to people of all ages to correct many different problems, such as improving the overall appearance and operation of your bite. With the help of our family orthodontist in Stone Mountain here at Davis Family Orthodontics, any bite problems or cosmetic issues that you have can be properly assessed and you can be given the appropriate orthodontic treatment as well.
Braces can help people of all ages, and for various reasons as well. Many people associate braces with teenagers. Teenagers tend to be the most popular demographic for orthodontic care because teenagers have all of their adult teeth but are still growing, making orthodontic treatment easier and faster, as well as more effective. But children and adults may need orthodontic care as well. Children may develop severe bite problems early on, and interceptive orthodontics can help to reduce or eliminate the need for oral surgery later in life. Adults may also be interested in getting braces if they were not able to get the treatment they wanted when they were younger or for general cosmetic purposes. With the help of our family orthodontist in Stone Mountain here at Davis Family Orthodontics, your bite and teeth can be expertly assessed and you can be prescribed with the exact kind of braces and orthodontic care you need in order to achieve the results you want.
Orthodontic care varies from person to person. In general, the treatment period can last anywhere from a year and a half to three years, or even longer depending on the severity of the issue. Other individuals may require retainers, spacers, expanders, and other orthodontic tools to achieve the results they need. No matter what you require, our family orthodontist in Stone Mountain is here to provide you with what you need.
