When to Schedule an Appointment to See an Orthodontist
There are many misconceptions in the world of dental care and hygiene. One of these is the mistaken belief that orthodontic care is only for kids and teenagers. While braces are often associated with adolescence, the truth is that patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment.
So when should you visit Sachem Dental Group in Nesconset for an appointment with one of our orthodontists? The biggest rule of thumb here is that you should see an orthodontist if you ever have any questions or concerns about the alignment of your teeth or jaw. If you didn’t have braces as a kid but have crooked teeth that are causing you pain or hurting your self-esteem, then a consultation with an orthodontist can be extremely fruitful. If you have an overbite or underbite, you should consult an orthodontist for that as well.
Even if you did have braces as a child, your teeth could lose their alignment if you fail to wear your retainer after your braces are removed. In other words, even if you have completed orthodontic treatment in the past, that doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t seek orthodontic treatment in the future.
For kids, the standard recommendation is that a child should have his or her first orthodontic treatment at the age of seven. For older patients, it’s always worth asking your general dentist if orthodontia might be a necessary or smart treatment path for you.
