Setting Smiles Straight in Medford

Is Orthodontics for Me?

You know your child is going to need braces. Or maybe your adult bite isn’t quite right. How do you know where to start? There are so many questions patients have before beginning orthodontic treatment of any type. How long will it take? Does it hurt? Can I still eat what I want? Is it going to break my budget? Finding the right orthodontist in Medford, with experience and expertise you can rely on is your first step towards a straight smile. Let us be your guide on this journey to renewed health and self-confidence.


What Age Should You Start Orthodontics?

Orthodontics isn’t just for kids and teens these days, but there’s certainly an optimal time you’ll want to talk to your orthodontist about beginning treatment. Our office generally likes to see kids around age 7, upon the recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists. This helps us to ensure they’re prepared for braces at a later age. We may even begin a simple process known as “phased treatment” where you can start orthodontic devices to prepare their mouth and teeth for treatment down the road. Parents should be happy to know that starting treatment around this time ensures excellent results, less treatment time, and less strain on your family’s budget.

What Types of Braces Are Available Today?

These days it seems like you can’t turn on the TV or listen to the radio without hearing an ad for a smile straightening solution. The good news is that more people are understanding the health and self-esteem benefits that accompany a healthy smile. With outstanding advancements in dentistry and orthodontics over the years, there are now even more treatment options that patients and parents can consider. We offer both traditional metal braces and ceramic styles. We’re also proud to be a certified Invisalign® provider since 2001. The technology we use has come a long way too. With our special iTero digital scanner, we’re able to take a precise digital impression to ensure a more comfortable, perfect fit for your orthodontic treatment. No more goopy, messy impressions from the past.
