What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that uses treatments like braces to move teeth into proper position and alignment. Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; it also improves bad bites (malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile. By fixing these problems, orthodontics can help keep your mouth healthy. Crooked teeth can be more difficult to clean, putting you at greater risk for cavities and gum disease.
At East Cobb Orthodontics, we use the industry’s most advanced technology and technique to straighten your smile. When it comes to your orthodontic care, our office is equipped to handle the following:
Timing of Orthodontic Treatment
Dr. Iaculli can enhance your smile at any age, from early childhood through adulthood. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation or screening should occur as early as age 7, allowing for careful monitoring of orthodontic problems and advantageous time to begin treatment. However, while early orthodontic treatment may be ideal, a surprising percentage of our patients are adults. We realize that health, happiness and self-esteem are vitally important to adults. No patient is “too old” to wear braces!
