WHO WEARS BRACES

You may think that the average orthodontic patient is a teenager, but that’s not the case anymore! Thanks to advancements in growth modification techniques and clear braces, Clauss Orthodontics serves individuals of varying ages and demographics.

Periodontal Patients
Gum health is important for lifelong tooth stability. For individuals with periodontal disease, crowding or crooked teeth are especially prone to suffering from the effects of bone loss and soft tissue detachment. Even with very good oral hygiene, symptoms may be difficult to manage. Aligning the teeth makes them easier to clean and maintain, so that gum disease can be better managed or eliminated.
Patients Who Relapsed
Losing retainers is one the most common causes of shifting teeth after completing treatment. No need to worry about going through full treatment again because at Clauss Orthodontics we offer Invisalign Express! Our orthodontist will help you discover your smile again.
Seniors
It’s not uncommon for us to hear from retirees, grandparents, or other seniors who never had the chance to straighten their teeth while they were growing up. At Clauss Orthodontics, it’s never too late to finally achieve the smile of your dreams.
Teens
Because teens and preteens are growing at a rapid pace, this period of oral development is usually the most common to seek out orthodontic therapy. Not only does proper alignment of the teeth promote better oral health, it’s an important part of a young person’s self-esteem.
Young Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child have his or her first orthodontic evaluation by age seven. At this point, the adult teeth are beginning to erupt and a growing mouth can be adjusted in a way that limits or eliminates more extensive orthodontic problems later on.
Parents
As parents you are constantly putting your kid first. Orthodontic treatment might even be the last thing you want to invest in for yourself. At Clauss Orthodontics we understand your concerns and even offer a family courtesy discount. Don't let financing, age, or your kids stand in the way of you getting the smile you always wanted.
Executives & Public Speakers
As the head of a company you are face to face with people on a daily basis. Did you know that by straightening your teeth you also improve your self-confidence and are least likely to miss work due to oral health concerns? You can even straighten your teeth without the traditional metal braces through Invisalign!
Patients With Tooth Decay
Did you know that tightly crowded teeth are almost twice as likely to develop cavities than ones that aren’t? Even if you brush regularly, you could be missing over areas that never have a chance to thoroughly clean. Aligning them with braces or Invisalign can reduce your risk and frequency of tooth decay. Remember all cavities will need to be corrected before starting treatment.
Patients With Chronic Headaches
Many adults are surprised to learn that there may be a link between their migraine headaches and the alignment of their teeth. If the upper and lower teeth don’t align properly, your jaw has to compromise the way it moves when you bite into and chew your food. Over time, those atypical movements can lead to soreness of the surrounding muscles. Gradually, headaches can start to become evident. By aligning the teeth and jaws through orthodontic therapy, Dr. Clauss can help you eliminate added joint and muscle strain.

We offer free consultations to all new patients at both our Woodbury and Watertown orthodontic practices. Dr. Clauss will discuss what concerns you may have, findings that he sees, and what we can do to help. You’ll walk away with answers to your questions, a treatment plan, and financial information should you decide to start treatment.

Whether it’s your child’s first orthodontic screening or you’re getting a second opinion, we’ll be happy to assist you. Call us today to schedule yours!

Awesome experience with my daughters first appointment this week. We even just received a super sweet personalized note in the mail! All staff made her feel comfortable as she was a little hesitant.
