Orthodontics for Kids
At Brodsky Orthodontics, we recognize that deciding to initiate orthodontic treatment for your child is a significant step. That's why we offer a two-phase orthodontic treatment plan designed to guide your child's dental development and ward off future dental complications.
This dual-stage approach can be incredibly effective for children who need early intervention for their orthodontic issues. By tracking and adjusting the alignment of your child's teeth at two distinct growth phases, we can often prevent problems before they even begin.
Dr. Brodsky and our team are here to address any queries you might have about this process. We're committed to assisting you in making the most informed decision for your child's dental health.
Phase One – Correcting the Problem
The initial phase of treatment typically occurring between the ages of seven and ten, is a proactive step in your child's orthodontic journey. At Brodsky Orthodontics, we focus on ensuring that your child's jaws develop correctly, setting the stage for the arrival of their permanent teeth.
There are several issues that might necessitate Phase One Treatment, including:
- Excessive crowding or spacing of teeth
- Thumb or finger habits leading to an open bite
- Crossbites causing the lower jaw to deviate to one side
- Any bite that results in gum tissue damage, enamel wear, or abnormal airflow
- Underbite or growth abnormalities
- Abnormal eruption of teeth
Our skilled doctors at Brodsky Orthodontics will administer Phase One treatments tailored to address these concerns and promote proper jaw development in your child. The primary objective of this initial phase is to preemptively tackle potential future problems that could necessitate surgical intervention.
Phase 2-Positioning and Alignment
After your child's permanent teeth have fully emerged, we at Brodsky Orthodontics will devise a treatment plan to correctly align them. This phase involves the more traditional orthodontic treatments that you might be familiar with, such as braces or Invisalign.
Upon completion of this second phase, your child will be left with a radiant smile and impeccably aligned teeth.
Orthodontics for Teens
Adolescence is a common time for orthodontic intervention. At this stage, the jaw and teeth are still in a state of growth, simplifying the process of rectifying any existing issues.
Moreover, teenagers often have heightened awareness about their physical appearance. Orthodontic treatment can serve as a confidence booster, helping them feel more comfortable and assured in their own skin. At Brodsky Orthodontics, we're committed to helping your teen achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.
Orthodontic Solutions for Teens
Braces remain the most prevalent form of orthodontic treatment for teenagers.
We've noticed that many teens in Lakewood are fond of options such as clear braces or Invisalign due to their subtlety.
Invisalign is particularly popular for its removability, allowing teens to eat, brush, and engage in sports or other activities without any hindrance.
Here are a few considerations that we've found to be significant for teens when it comes to orthodontic treatment:
- Aesthetics: A lot of teenagers are concerned about their appearance with braces or Invisalign. At Brodsky Orthodontics, we provide a range of choices to match every style, from vibrant bands to transparent aligners.
- Comfort: Braces and Invisalign may cause a bit of discomfort initially, but this typically subsides after a few days. We'll equip you with useful tips and strategies to make the transition period as smooth as possible.
- Social Life: Many teens are apprehensive that braces or Invisalign might disrupt their social activities. However, with clear aligners, normal eating, drinking, and speaking are still possible, and most sports activities can be carried out without any issues.
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment is not exclusively for children and adolescents. A growing number of adults are opting for braces or Invisalign to enhance their oral health and elevate their self-confidence.
In fact, almost half of our patients at Brodsky Orthodontics are over the age of 18. It's never too late to invest in your smile and overall oral health. We're here to guide you through the process and help you achieve the smile you've always wanted.
Treatment Options for Adults
Adults have access to the same range of orthodontic treatment options as children and teenagers.
Braces continue to be the most popular choice, but many adults prefer Invisalign due to its subtlety and removability.
Advantages of Adult Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment offers a host of benefits, including:
- Enhanced Oral Health: Straighter teeth are simpler to clean, reducing the likelihood of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health complications.
- Improved Bite: Rectifying a misaligned bite can enhance your ability to chew, speak, and breathe correctly.
Boosted Confidence: A stunning smile can elevate your self-esteem, making you feel more confident in social and professional scenarios.
Common Concerns for Adults
We've observed that many of our adult patients have a few apprehensions when it comes to their treatment. These include:
- Appearance: Adults may be reluctant to opt for braces or Invisalign due to concerns about their appearance. At Brodsky Orthodontics, we offer clear braces and Invisalign to make the treatment process more discreet.
- Cost: Orthodontic treatment can be expensive, but at Brodsky Orthodontics, we provide flexible no-interest payment plans to make it more affordable.
- Time Commitment: Orthodontic treatment can range from 6 to 24 months or longer, depending on the complexity of the case. However, the results are well worth the time investment.
