Transforming Smiles with Modern Solutions
Stunning results for patients of all ages
Orthodontics For All Ages
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check-up by age 7. At this age, permanent teeth are beginning to emerge, and in some children, there are specific orthodontic issues with the developing teeth and jaws that need to be addressed at the appropriate time. To make this process easy, evaluations are always complimentary for children in our office. Dr. Reuter will evaluate your child and review his findings and recommendations with you. If no treatment is neededat that time, he will recommend when the next check-up should be. A referral is not necessary for evaluation.
Teenage years are optimal for orthodontic treatment, as their permanent teeth have mostly emerged. Our orthodontic options for teens include traditional braces, clear ceramic braces, and clear aligners. These treatments help correct misaligned teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and gaps, giving them a confident and straight smile.
With the invention of more discreet orthodontic appliances such as clear aligners and clear ceramic braces, adults have multiple options available to meet the level of visibility that they feel comfortable with. In addition to more straightforward treatments, treatment for adults may also involve interdisciplinary collaboration with your dentist for dental implants or other restorative objectives. Dr. Reuter collaborates closely with Louisville’s best dentists to deliver outstanding results in complex adult care.
Braces are a common and effective orthodontic solution for children at Reuter Orthodontics. We often use traditional metal braces with colorful bands, giving kids a fun way to express themselves while their teeth are being aligned. As children transition into their teen years, they may opt for more discreet treatment options like clear ceramic braces.
Braces are no longer just for kids! In fact, one in five orthodontic patients is over 21. With advancements in orthodontic technology, adults now have more discreet options such as clear braces and aligners, which allow them to feel comfortable and confident in all situations as they progress through their treatment.
Traditional metal braces have stood the test of time as a reliable and efficient orthodontic option suitable for patients of all ages. Their sturdy and durable design makes them well-suited to address a wide range of orthodontic concerns, providing excellent results for various alignment issues.
Clear ceramic braces offer a more subtle alternative to traditional metal braces. Made from a translucent material, they blend in with the natural color of your teeth, making them less noticeable while functioning just like traditional metal braces. These braces are a popular choice for individuals seeking a discreet treatment option.
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign®, are a popular and discreet orthodontic treatment option. These virtually invisible aligners are made from medical-grade plastic and custom-designed to fit snugly over your teeth. As you progress through a series of aligners, they gently and gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. With the convenience of being removable, clear aligners allow you to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain your oral hygiene routine with ease. Contact us today to learn more and experience the flexibility of clear aligners.
Once you have completed your orthodontic treatment, retainers ensure that your teeth stay in their corrected positions, preventing any unwanted shifting. We offer different types of retainers, including removable and fixed options to suit your lifestyle and needs. Dr. Reuter will guide you on the best retainer choice to preserve your smile for years to come. Give us a call today to learn more about retainers and how they can help you maintain your new smile!
