Orthodontics for children

The best age for braces is between 9 and 14 years old. However, some kids may benefit from treatment at an earlier age.The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends taking your child for their first orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. We believe that bringing your child into our clinic early on can set them up for a lifetime of oral health.

Your child’s orthodontist can advise you on the best course of treatment and the best time to begin braces. Two-phase treatment may be recommended in some cases. With two-phase treatment, the child will start with early braces and then move on to a second phase of braces once all permanent teeth are present. The orthodontist’s goal is to provide each patient with a healthy and beautiful smile according to his or her individual needs.

At Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics, we specialize in pediatric orthodontics and treatment options. Book a free consultation today to find out more.

Orthodontics for adults

Although orthodontic problems are best treated during childhood, it’s never too late to get braces! The main difference in treating adults as opposed to children and teens, is that in younger patients the jawbones are still developing. For adults, these bones have stopped growing, which may require different treatments. Many adults choose to receive orthodontic treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance. Orthodontic correction in adults can help improve periodontal problems, prevent bone loss around teeth, improve oral health and aesthetic appearance, and increase self-esteem.

Mattingly & Howell Orthodontics is also a top provider of Invisalign treatment in the Louisville, KY metropolitan area – a discreet treatment option popular among our adult patients.
