OPTIONS TO FIT YOUNG & (NOT SO) YOUNG

Dr. Brent Lang is known as a leader in the dental community and is an Elite Invisalign and Damon System Provider. In fact, he’s kind of a tooth nerd, and that means he’s always looking for ways to make the orthodontic experience better, faster and more comfortable for patients of all ages. Plus, our advanced treatments are designed to enhance growth and development for younger patients and improve not only the smile but overall health, facial esthetics and the function of the jaws, teeth and airway for patients of all ages. In other words – we do more than straighten teeth.

  • Our treatment options include:
  • Early, interceptive treatment
  • The Damon Smile System
  • Invisalign & Invisalign for teens
  • Insignia (customized, digital treatment)

treatment for kids


TREATMENT FOR KIDS

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this optimal time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontics suggests that children be seen for an orthodontic consultation by the age of 7. At that age, we can advise of any functional orthodontic problem and when the appropriate timing for treatment is indicated (or not).

As far as first phase interceptive orthodontic treatment goes, the truth is we aren't particularly concerned if the teeth are just crooked at an early age (still has many baby teeth left and a few adult teeth in place), unless the crooked teeth are resulting in social issues for the child. We DO care at this time that FUNCTIONALLY the teeth come together properly - (cross-bites, giant overbites, teeth that stick out so far that there would be a risk of fracture, not enough room for teeth to come in, or close to the proper position). These types of problems we often address at an early age. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but with a complete orthodontic examination and periodic monitoring we can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. We provide this initial exam and monitoring at no cost to you, so please take advantage of this opportunity for your child's sake!

INVISALIGN AND OTHER INVISIBLE OPTIONS

Dr. Lang has over 20 years experience in treating patients with Invisalign. With Invisalign, you can get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted – without braces. A complimentary consultation can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

The Invisalign® System straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable aligners. It's virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without announcing it to the world. Invisalign moves your teeth in small steps to the desired final position. Each of your aligners are precisely customized to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. You switch to a new set of aligners every couple of weeks and only remove them to eat, brush and floss. Before you know it you’ll be smiling like you never have before!

At your complimentary consultation, you can find out about Invisalign along with Dr. Lang's other virtually invisible options.
