The American Association of Orthodontists recommends waiting for visits until around age seven. At this age, kids usually have baby and adult teeth. In some cases, the earlier a problem is discovered, the easier it is to correct without surgery. At Dr Fairleigh’s office, we’ve seen young children to high school seniors looking to improve their smile.

Metal Braces, A Traditional Approach.
More comfortable today than ever before, metal braces are still a viable and traditional approach to care. Made from stainless steel, metal braces align teeth using metal brackets and archwires.
Available in stainless steel, ceramic or polycarbonate, self-ligating braces utilize permanently installed, moveable clips to hold the archwires and align teeth into place. These clips help reduce pressure placed on your teeth. Since there are no elastic so to replace, fewer adjustments are necessary.
