At our orthodontics practice we provide treatment for children, teens, and adults. Today, orthodontic care is appropriate at all different ages, with more adult patients than ever before coming to visit our Palm Beach orthodontist, Dr. Douglas Freedman or Dr. Sharon Haas.
We provide many different types of orthodontic treatment, as well as treatment with different braces options. Our Palm Beach orthodontist at Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, will first assess your individual smile situation and let you know which type of treatment option will work best for you. Parents are urged to bring in their children aged between seven and 11 so that they too can receive an evaluation by our orthodontist. Today, it is common for young children to receive orthodontic care so that they will need to have less involved care later on, when they are a teen. Interceptive orthodontic care may involve influencing the growth of the jaws so that they will be able to accommodate all of the teeth that have yet to erupt. This type of treatment is much easier when the child is young, and the jaw is still growing. For our teen patients and adults, we offer many different types of braces options. Many of our adult patients enjoy treatment with Invisalign because they are able to have their teeth straightened without the use of wires or brackets on their teeth. We also offer other braces options. Metal braces are still the most common types of braces. However, the brackets are much smaller than ever before so they are now much more comfortable and attractive. Ceramic braces are a popular treatment option for teens who do not want to wear traditional metal braces. They are made of clear materials and are much less visible on your teeth than metal braces. We also offer lingual braces which are hidden behind the teeth and cannot be seen when you smile. They are a great option for athletes, people in the public eye, and adult professionals.
