Your smile is a very important facial feature. Dr. Magestro and his staff always follow the most up-to-date techniques that will benefit his patients. We provide the highest quality of orthodontic care to individuals of any age.
Taking positive measures at an early age can ensure the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends an initial evaluation at the first sign of problems, as early as age seven. A proper examination at this stage will help determine if treatment is necessary, as well as the precise time to begin.
Teens have the best opportunity to correct an orthodontic condition – and still achieve excellent results. Some problems are inherited, and teenagers can be very self-conscious about their image. Crooked or crowded teeth are hard to clean which contributes to tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. A bad bite can lead to abnormal tooth wear, difficulty in chewing and speaking, and jaw joint problems. If ignored, these problems can get even worse.
Orthodontic treatment can be extremely effective for adults. Even if there is breakdown or loss of teeth or bone, Dr. Magestro works with each patient individually to determine the best options. Some cases may require periodontal treatment before, during or after orthodontic treatment. Others may require traditional or invisible braces to correct problems.
