Orthodontics for Children

Just like many things in life, orthodontics is all about timing! The American Association of Orthodontics recommends every child have an orthodontic examination around age 7. Your child has a mix of adult teeth and baby teeth at this age, making it the ideal time to evaluate the bite, tooth position, growth patterns, and available space for the remaining adult teeth. Some problems can be treated much more effectively at this age, avoiding irreversible problems such as surgery or extraction of teeth in the future.

Dr. Seth will evaluate your child’s dental growth and development, determine if your child needs early intervention, and advise you regarding the optimal time to begin orthodontic treatment. Many kids in this age group simply need to be “observed” as they grow and develop. During observation, Dr. Seth will provide complimentary follow-up exams every 6 months. Take advantage of this amazing service provided at Copper Creek Orthodontics.

This is also a great opportunity for kids join our Copper Creek Cool Kids Club and have fun with Dr. Seth and the team. You will be part of the Copper Creek family after your first visit!

Orthodontics for Teens

The early teen years are the optimal time to begin treatment in most cases. By age 12, adult teeth are normally erupted and the last of the baby teeth have fallen out. Crowding, spacing, and bite problems are easily diagnosed and unlikely to improve without braces. Teens are also likely to be okay with the idea of braces because many of their friends are in braces too!

Teenagers grow fast! High metabolism and rapid growth allow quicker and more effective tooth movement. Dr. Seth can take advantage of this rapid growth to correct bites and align teeth.

Orthodontic treatment is the foundation for a lifetime of good dental health. Providing your teen with a beautiful smile helps them be confident and reach their full potential.

Orthodontics for Adults

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore! More than 25% of orthodontic patients nationwide are adults. Orthodontic treatment for adults can greatly improve aesthetics and self-image, giving you confidence in your personal and professional life. Crowded teeth and bite problems can contribute to tooth decay, gum recession, and jaw/TMJ pain. Not only can orthodontic treatment give you a beautiful smile, proper teeth alignment can also drastically improve overall dental health!

Invisalign® and Ceramic (clear) braces are excellent options for many adults who would rather not have traditional metal braces. Experience is vital when choosing an Invisalign orthodontist and Dr. Seth is a preferred Invisalign provider in the Portland Metro area.
