About Face has patients that range in age from 4 to 76, where we help people one smile at a time.
EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
We often recommend early preventative care that can eliminate or reduce treatment later. We specialize in recognizing children’s orthodontic problems before they occur. This is why we recommend that a child be seen for an exam no later than age 7. At an early age we are able to evaluate a child for overbites, open bites, extreme crowding, recessed lower jaw, side-to-side and front-to-back relationships. We reposition and expand the jaws of children to make room for teeth and improve facial profiles. It is easier to effect results when your child is still growing and before they have all their adult teeth. It is amazing and rewarding to see improvements in these young children. Children with habits such as mouth breathing and thumb sucking can be treated early to minimize the effect of the habit. Dr. Sanders has written a brochure for parents that explains what can be accomplished with early treatment. Call or stop by to pick up your copy.
TEEN ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
Braces offer a wonderful method to provide broad, beautiful smiles that can benefit the individual for the rest of his or her life. We use different types of braces depending on the needs and wishes of our teens. Some teens enjoy using colorful bands to express their individualism, school colors or holiday festivity. To give you a shorter treatment time, gentler experience and fewer appointments we offer high tech braces called Innovation by GAC. Invisalign®, which are clear removable "aligners" for teens is also one of your choices.
ADULT ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
Now is a great time for adults to consider having orthodontics. Braces aren't just for kids. Orthodontic treatment can significantly improve your appearance and self-esteem, at the same time, enhancing the health of your teeth and gums. There are multiple choices that can meet your personal needs and lifestyle. There are traditional braces, clear braces, and Invisalign®, which are clear removable "aligners". A large percentage of our patients are adults. We experience a high level of satisfaction helping our adults have a beautiful smile, a better bite, and more self confidence!
