Affordable Orthodontics for the Portland Metro
The most common oral health issues prompting orthodontic treatment is a bad bite (malocclusion). A malocclusion may be caused by one of more factors:
- Small Mouth
- Tongue Thrusting
- Extra Teeth or Not Enough
- Misaligned Jaw and Bone Structure
- Poor Muscular Functional Habits
Correcting the problem can create a nice-looking smile, but more important, orthodontic treatment results in a healthier mouth. That’s because crooked and crowded teeth make cleaning the mouth difficult, which can lead to tooth decay, gum disease and possibly tooth loss. An improper bite can interfere with chewing and speaking, can cause abnormal wear to tooth enamel, and can lead to problems with the jaws.
The American Dental Association recommends children receive an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. But orthodontics are not just for children. Close to 30 percent of all orthodontic patients in the United States and adults. Despite this growing trend towards adult orthodontics, it pays to start younger.
Today’s dental braces are much improved for a variety of reasons:
- Reduced Treatment Time
- Comfortable Treatment
- Esthetic Appeal
At the end of the process you are rewarded with a beautiful, confidence-building smile.
Friendly and Open Orthodontics
Orthodontics involves many visits to the office to have the braces tightened and adjusted. It is vital to have the office as close as possible to your child’s school to save time and gas. With most families needing to have both mom and dad at work, it is extremely beneficial to have a orthodontic office as close as possible–so less time is used for each office visit.
Dr. J.J. Jasper has selected Fairview Village for his office location, as it is a quick 1 mile from most of the schools in this area.
Older students can come in on their own for appointments, which allows the parents to stay at work, or do other things in their busy schedules.
