We see children, teenagers, and adults!
Children should be seen by an orthodontist no later than age 7.
Early screening increases the chances that a jaw or dental problem is addressed appropriately with Phase I treatment and can prevent the development of more serious problems. Dr. Im has two young children of her own and takes care of each of her young patients as if they were her own!
The teen years are the most common time for orthodontic treatment. At this time, most of the permanent teeth are in place and it is the ideal time to try and modify jaw growth if needed.
There is a lot of pressure nowadays on teens. Dr. Im loves the opportunity to help boost the self-confidence and self-esteem of her teenage patients while improving their oral health at the same time.
Orthodontic treatment is truly an investment in your child’s future! Call us to schedule a free consultation so Dr. Im can discuss the benefits of treatment with you as well as any potential risks associated with delaying or foregoing treatment.
It’s not too late to have braces if you are an adult!
Many adults come in to see Dr. Im to address crooked teeth or spaces that they’ve been self-conscious about for years. Orthodontic treatment can improve aesthetics for a better smile and facial appearance, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem. Other adults seek treatment to help improve their oral health. Orthodontic treatment can help prevent or improve periodontal problems, prevent or reduce further bone loss around teeth, improve the ability of the dentist to restore missing teeth, and improve the function and health of teeth.
