ORTHODONTICS FOR CHILDREN, TEENS, AND ADULTS
Braces & Invisalign® in Billings, MT
Orthodontic treatment can do much more than simply straighten teeth—it can improve oral health, help with brushing and flossing more effectively, increase self-confidence, and even enjoy a higher quality of life as you grow up! Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, screening at an early age ensures the greatest potential for results and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. Though metal braces are most often associated with orthodontic treatment, we offer many other effective options that can work wonders for growing teeth and accommodate every child’s lifestyle! Our team will be happy to review them with you in greater detail during your first visit so that we can determine the best course of action for your child.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
This classic service is highly-reliable and works wonders for a wide variety of ages. At Creekside Orthodontics, we’ll place silver brackets on the teeth and then attach orthodontic archwires over them with the help of rubber elastics. The archwires will then exert gradual pressure at different points on the teeth, shifting them towards the ideal position. Traditional braces are durable enough to stand up to your active routine, and you’ll surely enjoy choosing your favorite colored rubber bands to wear, too!
