Overview of Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic examination by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results.
There are two basic formats which orthodontists provide early treatment. One format is the serial removal of teeth to accommodate a crowded jaw. Research indicates that few people truly have large teeth; rather, they suffer from underdeveloped jaw structures. Dr. Williams’ early treatment is designed to address skeletal deficiencies, which are more easily corrected on a younger, growing patient. Early treatment allows for Dr. Williams to provide orthodontic treatment without extractions on 98 percent of his patients. This alternative allows Dr. Williams to create smiles that the patient can grow into rather than one that the patient outgrows. Early orthopedic treatment can not only reduce the need for extractions, but often can avoid surgery and the continuation of an abnormal growth.
There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Williams has developed techniques, which can preserve permanent teeth from extraction and also reduce the need for surgery, even in the non-growing adult. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.
The orthodontist has a very important role in the way in which a person’s face might age. Extraction of teeth for orthodontic purposes can lead to clinical results, which may be deficient in width. This deficiency in the transverse dimension will lead to a smile which will be outgrown by the patient and lead to premature aging. Dr. Williams delivers smiles that not only enhance the qualities of each individual face, but also deliver a total result, which also sets back the hands of time through a more youthful support of the facial tissues.
