Orthodontics for Children

Dr. Polk and our team at Polk Orthodontics will treat your children with care by giving them personalized treatment for their unique smiles. The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. Polk recommend that your child have their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems or by age seven.

Your child's teeth have developed enough by this age for Dr. Polk to spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.

Your check-up with Dr. Polk may reveal that your child's bite is on track and that early treatment isn't necessary. Or, she may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development for the time being.

After monitoring, we can begin treatment at the appropriate time if Dr. Polk still thinks it’s right for your child.

Early treatment at our office in Bartlett may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, Dr. Polk can achieve results early on with braces or Invisalign that wouldn’t be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.

Orthodontics for Teens

For teens around the Bartlett area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Polk Orthodontics is between the ages of 11 and 16.

Dr. Polk has the education and skill to easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range. Also, your teen's bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.

At Polk Orthodontics, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.

Orthodontics for Adults

You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. Polk, and that’s why we offer orthodontics for adults at Polk Orthodontics.

Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after the teen years. Teeth that were straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.

If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may have other dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. You may also have abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth, or it's difficult to chew normally.

Dr. Polk can address these issues and more with orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Polk uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way as adults and children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.

Why Should You Think About Orthodontic Treatment?

A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem

Successful orthodontic treatment at Polk Orthodontics can help boost your self-esteem, create a better quality of life, and allow you to smile with confidence.

Straight Teeth Are Healthy

After Dr. Polk aligns your teeth correctly, it's easier for you to clean them through regular flossing and brushing. This helps prevent other oral issues, including problems affecting your overall health.

Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse

If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Polk recommends it, you may run into long-term health issues that may end up costing you more.

At Polk Orthodontics, our team understands that kids, teens, and adults have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
