Orthodontics for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. Adam recommend that your child get their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems or by age seven.
Your child's teeth have developed enough by this age to allow expert orthodontists like Dr. Adam to detect subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.
Your check-up at Orthodontic Associates may reveal that your child's bite is in great shape, and braces for kids aren't necessary now.
Or, Dr. Adam may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development for the time being. After monitoring, we can start treatment at the best time for successful treatment with Orthodontic Associates.
Early treatment at our offices in St. Petersburg, Bradenton, and New Port Richey can prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, Dr. Adam can achieve results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
No matter what stage of treatment your child is in, Dr. Adam and our team at Orthodontic Associates will treat your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care.
Orthodontics for Teens
The most common time for teens in St. Petersburg, Bradenton, and New Port Richey to start orthodontic treatment at Orthodontic Associates is between the ages of 11 and 16.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Adam recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range. Also, your teen's bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Orthodontic Associates, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, clear braces, and lingual braces. Each treatment option gives your teen various benefits while transforming their smile and boosting their confidence.
Orthodontics for Adults
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. Adam. At Orthodontic Associates, we can correct orthodontic problems just as easily for adults as for children.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after your teen years. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Dr. Adam can address these issues and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you’ve always dreamed about. Dr. Adam uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way as adults and children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. Adam aligns your teeth, it's easier for you to maintain a regular flossing and brushing routine. This helps prevent other oral issues, including problems affecting your overall health.
A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successful orthodontic treatment at Orthodontic Associates can help boost your self-esteem, create a better quality of life, and allow you to smile confidently.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Adam recommends it, you may develop long-term health issues that may end up costing you more.
At Orthodontic Associates, our team understands that teens, kids, and adults have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
We'll ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment at our inviting offices in St. Petersburg, Bradenton, and New Port Richey.
