Orthodontic care is an efficient and permanent way to change your smile’s appearance for the better. Unfortunately, some adults believe orthodonticsthat braces are only for kids and that they are too old to undergo this procedure. This, luckily, is not true. Braces are for anyone who wishes to improve the appearance of their smile, no matter their age. Find out more about orthodontics for children and adults with Dr. Scott Suter at Suter Orthodontics in Colorado Springs, CO.

Am I a candidate for orthodontic care? 
Almost anyone who wishes their smile’s appearance was straighter or their mouth’s bite was corrected can benefit from orthodontic care. Dentists recommend braces for teens over the age of 12 and adults. In some cases, children under 12 may begin treatment early to help guide their still-growing jaw into alignment. Some of the most common issues orthodontic care treats include:

  • overcrowding
  • under crowding
  • misalignments
  • uneven teeth
  • overbite
  • crossbite
  • underbite
  • open bite

What kind of braces does Dr. Suter offer? 
Suter Orthodontics offers several types of braces, including:

  • Traditional Braces: These are the braces which most people think of when they envision orthodontic care. Colored rubber bands hold metal wires onto brackets placed permanently onto each tooth.
  • Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces work the same way as traditional braces, with brackets on each tooth which hold wires in place. However, rather than being made form noticeable metal, they are made from ceramic, a tooth-colored material which blends easily into your smile.
