Experts recommend that all children get their first orthodontic evaluation by the time they turn 7. At this age, we can see whether any of the adult teeth are having trouble erupting into proper alignment or if the upper and lower jaws don’t fit together (occlude) correctly.

If necessary, we can provide interceptive orthodontics to encourage healthy oral development and reduce the length of time your child needs in the second phase of braces later on.

Orthodontics for Adults and Teens

  • TMJ disorder
  • Gum disease
  • Worn, flat teeth
  • Dental injuries and emergencies
  • Tooth decay
  • Headaches
  • Cosmetic concerns

How Do Braces Work?

Traditional braces use a series of brackets and arch wires to nudge and guide your teeth into proper alignment. They’re great for addressing problems like crowding, gaps, crooked teeth, underbites, overbites and more.

At Morton Dental we can provide you with an estimate of how long your treatment will take at your initial exam. An average orthodontic case takes about a year to complete but varies on a case by case basis.

Affordable, Comprehensive Care

Our practice offers complete braces treatment for adults, teens and children in one convenient location. As a family practice, seeing us for your orthodontic care makes your experience an affordable one. Your treatment can be financed to conveniently fit your monthly budget so that you can start wearing your braces straightaway.

Caring for Your Braces During Treatment

It’s essential to have excellent home care habits if you’re wearing fixed orthodontics. Since there are extra appliances to clean around, you may want to invest in added oral hygiene aids such as floss threaders, tufted floss, a water flosser and an electric toothbrush. The more efficiently you can access areas under wires and around the brackets, the more thoroughly you can clean where plaque likes to accumulate the most.
