Orthodontics

Orthodontics specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities using a variety of corrective devices.

Orthodontic problems include conditions such as: gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, or misaligned jaws. Most of these conditions are hereditary while others are caused by accidents, thumb sucking, or losing baby teeth later than normal.

Orthodontic treatment corrects these conditions and results in a great smile and improved self-esteem!

When to see an orthodontist?

According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) if you notice any of the following conditions or behaviors, consult an orthodontist:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Mouth breathing
  • Sucking the thumb or fingers
  • Crowded, misplaced, or blocked-out teeth
  • Jaws that shift, make sounds, protrude, or are recessed
  • Speech difficulty
  • Biting the cheek or biting into the roof of the mouth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Teeth that meet in an abnormal way or don’t meet at all
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Grinding or clenching of teeth

When should orthodontic treatment begin?

The ideal age for starting orthodontic treatment ranges from three to twelve years of age. Although orthodontic treatment of children is preferred, age should not be a factor when consulting an orthodontist for treatment.

Think you’re too old for orthodontic treatment?

Think again! At Reardon Dental, we provide orthodontics for children and adults with excellent, aesthetic options to discreetly enhance your smile.

Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy. A new smile can begin today!

Orthodontics can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw pain.

The orthodontic techniques and appliances we use will minimize discomfort, reduce the frequency of visits, and shorten your overall treatment time. Options include: metal braces, ceramic braces, clear aligners, and nighttime-use aligners.

During your initial examination with Dr. Sarah Prehn, she will determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs, outline a detailed plan with its expected duration, and give you the approximate cost. Payment options are available.

Many of our orthodontic patients agree that it is never too late to improve your greatest asset – your smile!

  • Aubrey W.1/06/2022

    Love this dentist! Everyone is so nice and professional! I’ve been going here since for 24 years! They’ve always taken good care of me!

    Deb Y.12/28/2021

    I had pain in a tooth and called Wednesday morning and they told me to come right in. Dr. Reardon was very kind and thorough and explained my options. He ended up removing out an old filling and replacing it. His calm manner helped me through the drilling procedure and Sherry was great at replacing the filling. I appreciated that Dr Reardon fit me in to resolve the tooth pain. Excellent experience, even with the drilling part. Thank you! Thanks

    Got in quickly, Stephanie is kind and gentle. No pain. Dr. O’Brian very nice and also friendly. Overrall the office is clean and friendly and since I have to go to the dentist, I actually don’t mind this group.
