At Goldstein, Garber, & Salama, we're proud to help our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles through custom, comprehensive dental and orthodontic treatment. If you're looking to correct crooked teeth and achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile, our wide range of orthodontic and cosmetic services can help you meet your goals.
Virtually anyone can get orthodontic braces – if you're dissatisfied with your smile, chances are that braces can help. Braces are most common for adolescents; the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children get an orthodontic evaluation at age 7, as this is the first age we can spot malocclusions. However, if you're an adult longing for a straighter new smile, don't worry: we can move healthy teeth at any age, so you're never too old for braces.
During treatment, it’s important that you make a few modifications to your lifestyle to take care of your braces. Avoid any foods that are hard, crunchy, sticky, or full of sugar. For example, nuts, ice, taffy, gum, and sugary sodas should all be avoided. In addition, adhering to a diligent oral hygiene routine is crucial while you have braces, as your teeth are extra vulnerable to decay during treatment.
