Orthodontic Treatment

Common Orthodontic Corrections in Adults and Children

Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental and associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions, which enable our practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary.

Treatment typically lasts from 6 to 30 months, depending on age and the severity of the orthodontic problem.Oustanding results are also dependent on our relationship with you and your committment to your appointments. We are committed to delivering the best possible service in order for you to achieve your beautiful smile.

Orthodontic Treatment Timing

Dr. Freels provides orthodontic treatment for adults, adolescents and children. We follow the guidelines established by the American Association of Orthodontists by recommending that an orthodontic evaluation take place at age 7 for all children. This early evaluation can help to determine the best time to begin any necessary treatment.

Limited treatments are available for younger patients which provide significant benefits, specifically for growth and development. These short-term treatments may also prevent certain conditions from worsening. Treating children with these types of problems during their growth stages allows Dr. Freels to achieve results that may not be possible when face and jaw bones have fully developed. This early treatment can simplify or eliminate additional treatment for the child.

This entire team is friendly, courteous, respectful and professional. All three of my children got braces at Freels and I never once had to wait more than 5 minutes for my scheduled appointment. The office is always very clean and welcoming. I would highly recommend Freels Orthodontics!
