The Right Age
Timing is critical! Your orthodontist is also a specialist in dentofacial orthopedics and trained to utilize the growth of your child’s facial bones to attain the proper balance between the upper and lower jaws. Adolescence is often the most appropriate time to adequately achieve this facial balance. Every case is unique. Visiting an orthodontist early keeps you informed of the ideal timing for your child’s treatment. Observation visits are complimentary. The only cost to you is your time.
For a healthy, beautiful smile, Dr. Eppard offers advanced treatment technologies and quality orthodontic products, designed for comfort and aesthetic excellence. Your child can choose from Victory Series™ Low Profile metal braces, Clarity™ ADVANCED clear braces, or fun shaped WildSmiles Braces®. We know your time is valuable and life can feel hectic. That is why our office uses wires, originally developed by NASA, which allow for a six to eight week interval between appointments. For less complex cases Invisalign® Teen may be the perfect choice for your child’s busy schedule.
