The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that you have your child examined as early as age seven. At that early age, we can detect (and correct) issues that will cause trouble when they reach their teen years in the least invasive way. In fact, early treatment can literally improve their facial features for life and save everyone involved the financial and emotional expense often associated with problems that go unchecked.
Braces have come a long way since Wentz Orthodontic Specialists first began making kids smile. The wires we use today are less noticeable and are made of "space age" materials that exert a steady, gentle pressure on the teeth with wires "activated" by the heat of your mouth. The process is now faster and more comfortable – plus kids can show their own style by personalizing their braces with brightly colored ties.
