It is never too early or too late to consider getting orthodontic care. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child visit an orthodontist by the age of 7 or earlier if dental problems are detected by the parents, family dentist, or physician. Getting early orthodontic treatment can help prevent health problems and a need for orthodontic surgery later in life. But adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment as well. 20 to 25% of orthodontic patients today are adults.

Tulsa orthodontists at Kirkpatrick & Lia Orthodontics help our patients walks through the treatment process every step of the way. We also help parents and individuals know what signs to look for that would indicate orthodontic care is needed. Some of these signs include: difficulty chewing, spaces between the teeth, open bite, under bite or crowded and overlapped teeth. We provide many different orthodontic services to address these problems including; clear braces, early treatment, facial surgery referrals, and adult orthodontic treatment.

Don’t put off orthodontic care for you or your child because you fear that braces or other orthodontic treatment might be a painful or uncomfortable process. The placement of abandoned brackets in your teeth is not painful. Your lips and cheeks may need one to two weeks to get used to the braces in your teeth but after that braces become a normal and unintrusive part of your daily life. Braces do not need to interfere with sports playing musical instruments or anything else you need to do. Treatment varies case to case but on average in 1 to 2 years you can have that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
