Find out the best time to visit our orthodontist in Colorado Springs for a consultation.

Sure, if you have crooked teeth this may be a telltale sign that you could benefit from braces. Of course, even teeth that are seemingly bracesstraight may still benefit from orthodontic treatment. Whether your child’s teeth have just started to come in or you are considering braces as an adult, let our Colorado Springs, CO orthodontist, Dr. Scott Suter, help you decide whether this treatment is right for you.

Braces for Children

It’s a good idea to bring your child in for an orthodontic evaluation around the age of seven. Since most of their adult teeth have already erupted, it’s a great time for us to pinpoint any issues that could benefit from an early orthodontic intervention. This could eliminate larger dental issues later on when your child is a teen or adult.

Sometimes crooked teeth or misaligned smiles can affect how children chew or even how they speak. By turning to our Colorado Springs orthodontic specialist right away for treatment we can often alter the development of the teeth and jaws to improve how everything functions. In turn, this can often fix speech impediments your child might have on account of their misaligned smile.

Braces for Teens and Adults

For whatever reason, there are more and more people out there that didn’t get an orthodontic evaluation when they were younger but certainly want to fix their smiles now. Just know that it’s not too late. Whether it’s for your teen or for yourself, there are many orthodontic options out there that cater to your needs.

After all, we know that as you get older the idea of wearing metal braces may seem rather embarrassing. A lot of teens hate the idea of having school pictures with a mouth full of metal, and adults can’t fathom wearing braces while at the office.

We completely understand, which is why we offer subtler treatment options, like tooth-colored bracket and wires. There are so many ways to get the smile you want at any age. Now there is no excuse!

Suter Orthodontics in Colorado Springs, CO, is dedicated to straightening smiles of all ages. Whether your child’s front teeth are crooked or you never had braces as a child but want to fix your smile as an adult, we have the orthodontic options you’ve been looking for.
