Get a Great Smile at Any Age
Everyone should be able to get quality orthodontic care and a beautifully aligned smile. We’re proud to offer a full range of orthodontics for children, teens, and adults.
Orthodontics for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child receive their first orthodontic evaluation by around age seven.
By this time, your child should have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth. This makes it easier for Dr. Brady to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems before they have the chance to become more severe.
Early, or interceptive, treatment with Brady Orthodontics will allow us to:
- Correct and guide the growth of your child's jaw
- Regulate the width of the upper and lower arches
- Create more space for crowded teeth
- Help avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
- Correct bad habits like thumb sucking
- Help improve minor speech problems
The Best Braces for You
Brady Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to choose from, both fixed and removable.
These options include:
- Traditional metal braces
- Ceramic braces
- Invisalign Teen
Orthodontics for Teens
If you have a teen who recently learned braces can improve their smile, you probably have lots of questions.
You may be feeling nervous or worried when you think about beginning the process.
But there’s no need to worry – bulky, uncomfortable metal braces are a thing of the past.
Today’s braces are smaller, sleeker, and far more comfortable than ever before. They also come in a variety of styles, materials and colors.
Orthodontics for Adults
Not Just for Children & Teens
In fact, one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21.
Many adults are choosing to receive treatment later in life because they understand how important it is to maintain their oral health, they want to feel better about their overall appearance, or both. If you’ve experienced any of the following issues, orthodontic treatment may be for you:
- A bad bite (malocclusion) causing your teeth to fit together incorrectly
- The teeth are too crowded or spaced too far apart
- Any abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
- Or simply a desire for a healthier mouth and a more confident smile
Although the thought of wearing braces as an adult can be intimidating, several options are discreet but effective. At Brady Orthodontics, we offer ceramic braces, which blend in closely with your own smile, and Invisalign, a clear aligner system that is nearly invisible.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight teeth are healthy teeth — When your teeth are properly aligned it’s easier to keep them clean by flossing and brushing, which in turn helps to prevent other oral issues, including some that can affect your overall health.
A healthy, straight smile builds confidence and self-esteem — Successfully completed orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, give you a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for maybe the first time ever!
Untreated oral issues will get worse — Delaying or refusing orthodontic treatment when it's needed can create long-term health issues that will wind up costing you more in the end.
