Patient Overview

Welcome to Mint Orthodontics LLC

Orthodontic problems require specialized care. Patients who have dental and facial irregularities should see an orthodontist. Orthodontists receive an additional two to three years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. Our specialization allows us to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment for optimal facial balance.

Good dental health starts early. To have a healthy smile foundation, your child needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends each child have an initial check-up with an orthodontist no later than age 7. By then, your child has enough permanent teeth for an orthodontist to determine whether an orthodontic problem exists or is developing. While orthodontic treatment most often begins between the ages of 9 and 14, some children’s orthodontic problems can benefit from earlier treatment. If it appears that your child will need treatment at some point, we can advise you about the best time to begin.
