Serving children, teens & adults
At Orthodontics Exclusively, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy high-quality orthodontic care and a stunningly straight smile. We’re proud to offer a full range of orthodontics for children, teens, and adults at our Oklahoma City and Norman offices.
Our Norman and South Oklahoma City teams will treat your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care. The American Association of Orthodontists and our Orthodontics Exclusively doctors recommend that your child have their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems or by age seven.
Your child’s teeth have developed enough by this age to allow our expert orthodontists to spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.
Your child’s check-up at Orthodontics Exclusively may reveal that their bite is fine, and braces for kids aren’t necessary now.
Or we may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child’s growth and development. After that, we can begin treatment at the appropriate time if your orthodontist still thinks it’s right for your child.
If we determine that treatment is necessary, the first phase starts when your child still has primary teeth and can include preventive, interceptive, and modifying treatment.
We can treat multiple issues with tooth alignment, jawbone, and gums with Phase-1 treatment. We may place orthodontic appliances to prevent or treat a problem.
The second phase of orthodontic treatment generally starts in the early teen years when your child has fully grown their permanent teeth. Experienced orthodontists like the experts at Orthodontics Exclusively easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range.
Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough for orthodontic treatment but not yet fully grown. We can take advantage of their rapid growth and help correctly shape the jaw and teeth.
This is also a great time to start orthodontic treatment because children in this age group see many friends wearing braces, so there is no stigma attached.
Orthodontics for adults
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Orthodontics Exclusively, which is why we offer orthodontic treatment for adults at our Oklahoma City and Norman offices.
We provide convenient solutions for adults who need orthodontic treatment. For adults and working professionals, we keep aesthetics in mind. With the aligners made in our lab, we will give you the smile you deserve.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after the teen years. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may have other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Our experts can address these issues and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you deserve. When creating your treatment plan, we keep your aesthetics in mind so you’ll feel more confident from day one.
