At Tasios Orthodontics, we are celebrating Orthodontic Health Month! Not only does this celebratory time happen during the month of October, but also during fall – the season of change. There’s no better time to explore the possibility of a healthier and beautifully aligned smile at Tasios Orthodontics.
The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to create a healthy bite — including straight teeth that properly align with the opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A healthy bite isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, it also makes daily activities easier too. This includes your ability to bite, chew and speak. It is also easier to maintain your oral health care as well!
Abnormal bites usually become noticeable around the ages of 6 to 12 years old. As a result orthodontic treatment typically begins for most between the ages of 8 and 14. Optimally, it is best to begin treatment while a child is growing. This way we can intercept any problems early on and help prevent them from becoming worse down the road. In the past, orthodontic treatment was usually associated with kids and teens. However, today, many adults seek orthodontic treatment too.
