The Right Age

Orthodontists today can successfully correct most problems regardless of the patient’s age. But that does not mean that the orthodontic treatment starting age does not matter. In fact, it may play a significant role in the total time and expenses required for the completion of the orthodontic treatment.

At Sparks Family Orthodontics, we base treatment on the simple but important philosophy of what is best for the patient? Unfortunately, it’s a real temptation for orthodontists to simply look at how crooked the teeth are and say “how can we best line these teeth up now?” Too many practices treat all orthodontic issues the same for every patient. For example, some practices treat everyone with two phases of treatment while others say only one phase of treatment is EVER necessary. NEITHER is true! But Dr. Sparks looks at the face first prior to determining your treatment needs. Some patients only need one phase of treatment while others need early intervention prior to comprehensive treatment at a later date.
