People often wonder when the best time to recieve orthodontic care treatment is, or if it is too late for them to correct dental issues later in life. People of all ages can benefit from orthodontic care. Tulsa orthodontists at Kirkpatrick & Lai Orthodontics provide both early treatment and adult orthodontic care. Orthodontic care is of course best recieved at an early age while the dental and facial structure is still developing but over 20% of orthdontic patients today are adults. We think that everyone deserves a beautiful smile. The American Association of Orthodontics typically recommends that a child see an orthodontist by age 7 or earlier if problems are detected. Early treatment can help prevent a need for larger surgery or other health issues later on. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Receiving care from Tulsa orthodontists at Kirkpatrick & Lai Orthodontics doesn’t just benefit your family. It also benefits kids in need. We love helping people and giving back in any way we can. We are thrilled to partner with Royal Family Kids Camp in helping put smiles on hurting kids faces throughout the state of Oklahoma. Royal Family Kids Camp helps kids that have been placed in the Oklahoma foster care system experience a once in a lifetime birthday experience. We donate $10 to Royal Family Kids Camp for every new patient we recieve. We call it, “Giving Smiles, Giving Birthdays,” and we love getting the chance to spread more smiles among Oklahoma kids.

Many kids can struggle with image concsciousness in their developmental years. Orthodontic care can help them feel better about their smile and appearance and also prevent future health complications. Orthodontic care helps increase the long term health of teeth and gums and improves teeth function. Overlapping or crowded teeth can create many problems for your child including difficulty chewing or struggles with speech development. We help guide tooth movement into favorable locations to promote better health and function of the teeth.
