Well, how about everyone else? Orthodontics isn’t just for people who are still growing. Anytime you have a question about your smile, bite, alignment of your teeth (spacing, crowding, etc.), any jaw related issues, can be evaluated by an orthodontist. Teeth move at any age. So it doesn’t hurt to get braces as an adult either.
So, when you start seeing those permanent teeth coming in, ask Dr. McVey if it’s time to make an appointment to see the orthodontist. If you have any questions, Dr. McVey can guide you. Until next time, keep smiling, flossing, and brushing!
