  • Treatment for Adults (pdf)
    One in five new orthodontic patients is an adult. A person’s age need not be a consideration in getting a great smile. In fact, whether we’re treating adults or teens, the processes involved in orthodontic treatment are the same. The key factor in determining your prospects for an improved smile and dental health, is the health of your teeth, gums and supporting bone.
  • Recommendation for Orthodontic Check-Ups by age 7 (pdf)
    By checking children early, we can spot subtle problems with teeth or jaw growth, determine if treatment is needed, and, if so, when it should start. That’s key, because for each patient, there’s an ideal time to begin orthodontic treatment in order to achieve the best results. Orthodontists have the skill to determine when the time is just right.

  • Handling Orthodontic Emergencies (pdf)
    Only the most severe emergencies may require immediate attention by an orthodontist. The majority of these are easily treated with a follow-up by your orthodontist.
  • Your Smile (powerpoint)
    Your smile is one of your most valuable assets. It’s often the first thing people notice about you, and it’s the focus of attention whenever you speak. Your smile reflects your health and your personality. The crowning glory of a great smile are those two rows of perfectly straight, pearly white teeth. A healthy, attractive smile is a source of confidence and emotional well-being.
