We provide the latest treatment options for all of our patients. Invisalign and clear or ceramic brackets are two common treatment options, but many of our patients also choose traditional metal brackets. Dr. Hillstead will discuss the benefits of each treatment option at your initial consultation as well as answer any questions you may have. To learn more about the benefits of orthodontic treatment for you or your child, please contact our office for an appointment. We look forward to meeting you!
Orthodontic Treatment for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that an initial orthodontic evaluation should occur around age 7. Some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if they are identified early. The ideal time to treat children varies with each individual child and is based on their unique diagnosis. For some patients, this may mean initiating treatment before all of their permanent teeth have erupted. For others, it's best to wait until all of the permanent teeth have come in to begin treatment. We would love to meet your child and help you to decide if and when orthodontic treatment might be right for them.
Orthodontic Treatment for Adults
Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for children and teens. The American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21! At Hillstead Orthodontics we love treating adults. Dr. Hillstead underwent orthodontic treatment himself as an adult and enjoys creating the smile his adult patients have always dreamed of. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of receiving orthodontic care, and now you can too.
