The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children be seen by an orthodontist for an initial evaluation by age 7. This does NOT mean that all seven year olds will need braces. At this age, primary (baby) teeth are being replaced by permanent teeth and it’s a good time to start tracking jaw growth.
By getting regular dental growth check-ups with Dr. Bret, we can determine the best time to begin treatment if it is necessary. For more information about the importance of the initial evaluation, please click here!
At Bret Johnson Orthodontics, we understand the importance of having a beautiful smile. We see confidence build in our patients with every visit to our office. By the time our patients are done with their treatment, they leave our office with a beaming, confident smile. That’s why we love what we do!
We believe it’s NEVER too late to straighten your smile. A healthy bite is as important at age 60 as it is at 16! Technology continues to advance in the orthodontic industry and there are always exciting new treatment options that are both effective and discreet such as clear braces and Invisalign!
TADs, or Temporary Anchorage Devices are widely used during orthodontic treatment to treat more complicated malocclusions. The placement of these mini screws are minimally invasive and cause little to no discomfort.
Sometimes excess gum tissue can get in the way of achieving the absolute best orthodontic results. If this is the case, Dr. Bret can use a soft tissue laser to remove the excess gum tissue to uncover the teeth that are partially or fully impacted, so we can place the bracket and bands on your teeth and expedite your treatment.
Surgical Orthodontics, often called orthognathic surgery, corrects jaw irregularities to improve a patient’s bite. Surgery is only used in cases where the jaw cannot be corrected with braces or other appliances.
