There are many options available today for both children and adults in need of orthodontic treatment for malocclusion of the teeth and jaws. When teeth and the jaws do not properly meet, the problem can become more symptomatic than just appearances! Painful joint problems can arise, tooth and gingival issues can develop with teeth that are too crooked to properly clean, and certain digestive issues often stem from poorly chewed food. Orthodontics treats and prevents all of these issues with small appliances and devices designed to straighten teeth and correctly align the jaws.
At Jefferson Dental Clinics, we encourage parents to consider orthodontic treatment for children in the growing stages of adolescence, between the ages of 11 and 13, when teeth are easier to move. Younger children with specific types of malocclusions may require an initial phase of treatment (usually an appliance or teeth spacers) a few years before braces are placed on the teeth.
Adult Orthodontics Options
Orthodontic therapy is not for children only. Significant numbers of adults are also benefiting from orthodontic treatment. The skilled Orthodontists at JDC effectively communicate with adult patients and discuss their treatment options based on the patients’ individual concerns and needs. Adult patients are thoroughly informed of their treatment plan every step of the way, so they feel truly involved in the metamorphosis of their smile!
At JDC we always put our patients first and constantly strive to deliver the highest quality services in the most affordable way. Our skilled Orthodontists use the GAC In-Ovation-R self-ligating bracket. This high quality bracket may cost us a little more than the appliances offered by many other orthodontists but we believe it has significant advantages – the GAC In-Ovation-R is easy to place with a torque in base design, strong and durable it has superior reliability and provides superb rotational control. This results in a high quality treatment, gentle wires with fewer and easier wire changes for patients and overall reduced treatment times.
The best part for the patient who chooses to have their Orthodontic treatment at JDC is that if you have Medicaid you will get all the advantages of a superior bracket and treatment at no cost to you. If you have Insurance or are a cash paying patient the cost to you will be very affordable compared to other providers who do not use the same bracket. Call or email us to hear about our very affordable rates.
