Treatment For Kids:
The ideal time to consider orthodontic treatment for children is when his or her permanent front teeth and first molars are coming through. This usually occurs between the ages of 5 and 7 years old. By this time, crossbites, crowding, and other problems can be evaluated.
With early treatment, Dr. Martin can guide the growth of the jaw and incoming permanent teeth. Early preventative treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for extractions of permanent teeth, reduce the likelihood of impactions, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems.
Early treatment can simplify and/or reduce later treatment. Contact one of Dr. Martin’s three offices in Alcoa and Knoxville, Tennessee to schedule an evaluation for your child. Dr. Martin can discuss preventative measures and early treatment options and answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s orthodontic needs.
Treatment For Adults:
Braces aren’t just for kids anymore – with the latest orthodontic innovations, it has never been more convenient or easy for busy adults to perfect their smiles! Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. Dr. Martin Orthodontics offers a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults!
Orthodontic treatment at later stages in life can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Improving the health of your teeth and gums is equally important. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options that best meet your specific needs, such as clear braces or Invisalign aligners that can be worn to correct misaligned teeth.
During the initial examination, we will be able to determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs and can outline the treatment plan, longevity of treatment, and the approximate cost with you.
