Orthodontics for Children
Dr. White and our team at Smile Studio will treat your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care.
The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. White recommend that your child get 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 Dr. White at Smile Studio to spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.
Your check-up at Smile Studio may reveal that your child's bite is fine, and braces for kids aren't necessary at this time.
Or, Dr. White may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development for the time being. After that, we can begin treatment at the appropriate time if Dr. White still thinks it’s appropriate for your child.
Early treatment at our office in Zachary or Baton Rouge may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
In some cases, Dr. White can achieve results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around the Zachary and Baton Rouge areas, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Smile Studio is between 11 and 16.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. White can easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range. Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
Your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces at Smile Studio. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Your smile is the first thing other people around Zachary and Baton Rouge notice about you. Do you love yours?
You're never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. White, and that's why we offer orthodontics for adults at Smile Studio. Dr. White can correct orthodontic problems just as easily for adults as for children.
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 cause 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.
Dr. White can address these issues and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you've always wanted.
Dr. White uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way for both adults and children, and you'll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
Why Should You Think About
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. White properly aligns your teeth, it’s easier for you to keep them clean through regular flossing and brushing. This helps prevent other oral issues, including some problems affecting your overall health.
A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successful orthodontic treatment at Smile Studio can help boost your self-confidence, create a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for maybe the first time.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. White recommends it, you may run into long-term health issues that may cost you more.
At Smile Studio, our team understands that teens, kids, and adults have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care. We'll work for you to make sure you receive the most appropriate treatment at our inviting office in Zachary or Baton Rouge.
