Our Patients

Downtown Orthodontics sees patients of all ages – from children to adults. If you think you or your child could benefit from orthodontic treatment, it’s never too late to correct your bite. Contact us today for more information.

Children

Children who still have some baby teeth may require orthodontic treatment for the correction of specific problems. These problems may include the following:

  • Correction of a habit such as thumb sucking, which can move teeth and affect the bite
  • Early treatment to address severe developing crowding
  • The correction of tooth interferences like cross-bites, which may damage permanent teeth and affect bite development
  • The correction of growth-related problems in the upper or lower jaw

Teenagers

Most commonly, teenagers will wear braces to correct many types of problems. Often people will assume that the orthodontist simply straightens the teeth to improve the appearance of the patient’s smile. This is only part of the story. A corrected bite is also important to allow proper chewing, to minimize abnormal tooth wear, to ensure balanced jaw and muscle function, and to ensure the greatest ease when brushing and flossing the teeth.

Adults 

Adults can also benefit from the many advantages of orthodontic treatment. Even if some tooth wear or damage has occurred, adjusting the position and shape of teeth can restore their appearance and function. Orthodontic treatment can also make it easier to replace missing teeth with implants after the braces are gone.
