Orthodontics for Children
There isn’t a definitive age to start orthodontics, but Dr. Guymon recommends a free consultation around age seven.
By this age, most children have a mix of baby and adult teeth, making it easier for Dr. Guymon to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner (and, more importantly, without surgery).
There’s no better treatment than prevention. Catching things early will help Dr. Guymon give your child a healthy, beautiful smile for the future. Here are a few signs that may indicate that your child should see an orthodontist like Dr. Guymon:
- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- A hard time chewing or biting food
- Mouth breathing
- Finger or thumb sucking
- Crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth
- Jaws that pop or make sounds when opening and closing
- Teeth that come together abnormally or not at all
- Jaws and teeth that are not proportionate to the rest of the face
- Crowded front teeth around age seven or eight
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around Logan and Hyrum, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Guymon Orthodontics is between the ages of 11 and 16.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Guymon easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range. Your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to support orthodontic treatment.
At Guymon Orthodontics, we offer a variety of braces (types and styles) for teens to choose from, including ceramic braces, clear aligners, and traditional metal braces.
Orthodontics for Adults
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. Guymon, and that’s why we offer orthodontics for adults at Guymon Orthodontics.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after your teen years. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
Rest assured, you’re not alone in seeking treatment as an adult. Whether it’s recurring jaw pain, gum disease, crowded teeth, a bad bite, or simply building confidence in their smiles, one in five orthodontic patients is over 21. Some stigma stems from visible metal braces and discourages a lot of adults from treatment which is why we offer many alternatives.
Dr. Guymon uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way as adults and children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
Why Should You Think About Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. Guymon aligns your teeth correctly, it’s easier for you to clean them through regular flossing and brushing. This helps prevent other oral issues, including problems affecting your overall health.
A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successful orthodontic treatment at Guymon Orthodontics can help boost your self-confidence, create a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for the first time.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Guymon recommends it, you may run into long-term health issues that may end up costing you more.
At Guymon Orthodontics, our team understands that teens, kids, and adults have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
We’ll ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment at our inviting offices in Logan and Hyrum.
