Thanks for asking! It really depends on the dental age of the patient rather than their chronological age. Usually a good time to have your child evaluated by an orthodontist is after the front permanent teeth have erupted into the mouth or if there appears to be extreme crowding of the teeth.
At Moles & Ferri Orthodontics, we proudly treat adults, teens, and children—no matter what your age, we believe you deserve a great smile. Our warm and welcoming team is known for their for their exception orthodontic skills. Dr. Randall Moles, Dr. Nicholas Ferri and our talented team have been creating beautiful smiles in the Milwaukee, Racine or Brookfield, WI area for years, and today would like to ask: what do you love about your new smile? How has your smile improved your life?
We know that having an attractive smile puts a spring in your step—or two—as well as increases your self-confidence, no matter if you’re 14 or in your late thirties. Smiling not only makes people happy and puts them in a good mood, doing it often can even help you live longer, according to previous studies!
This is a question we hear all the time. Malocclusion, or what we call having a “bad bite,” is the improper alignment of teeth and/or jaws. When your teeth and jaws are not properly aligned, it may impact your bite, the ability to properly care for your teeth, your gum tissue health and even your appearance. Most people will experience some degree of malocclusion, but it generally is not severe enough to require orthodontic treatment. If your malocclusion is serious enough, however, treatment may be necessary to correct the issue.
