Orthodontics for All Ages
A Confident and Healthy Smile at Any Age
Dr. Reichard treats orthodontic patients of all ages. It’s never too early or too late for a healthier smile, a functioning bite and a more confident you.
Start Early and Treat Conservatively
The first permanent molars and incisors erupt around 7 years of age. This is a perfect time for Dr. Reichard, a board-certified dentofacial orthopedic specialist, to evaluate emerging problems before they become more serious. As children have a lot of growing to do, it is important to ensure early treatment guides proper tooth, jaw and facial growth and development.
Most children with emerging issues won’t need braces right away and Dr. Reichard monitors their development until the time is right. For children needing orthodontic treatment sooner, it is beneficial to begin early, making treatment easier and less costly than pushing it off into the future.
Orthodontic Treatment for Tweens and Teens
The teenage years are a common age to start orthodontic treatment. Your jaw bones are still soft and growing, making it an excellent time to straighten teeth and fix a not-quite-right bite.
There are many different treatment options available, from traditional metal braces to Invisalign Teen and more. Dr. Reichard will help you choose the right treatment that fits you!
Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Did you know that around 30% of orthodontic patients nationwide are adults? You’re never too old for a healthy and confident smile. While some of the adult treatment options differ from our younger patients, Dr. Reichard will recommend a treatment plan that’s right for you.
