Beauty, Confident Smiles for All Ages
At Scotia Orthodontics, we follow the recommendations of the American Association of Orthodontists, which suggest that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. During this evaluation, Dr. Larisa will examine your child and determine if early orthodontic treatments are needed to help jaws develop properly and accommodate adult teeth.
Early intervention is not always necessary. If needed, it can be beneficial for correcting bite problems and improving teeth alignment. It can also help address issues with speech, improve oral hygiene, and prevent problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). By monitoring progress and making early corrections, we can avoid more extensive and expensive treatments later on.
Phase II orthodontic treatment is essential in achieving the best possible long-term outcome for your teen's smile. It allows us to fine-tune the position of your teeth and jaw for optimal function and aesthetics, ensuring you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for years to come. Additionally, most permanent teeth have erupted by this time, making it easier to see the full scope of any orthodontic issues and address them accordingly.
Phase 2 treatment allows us to refine their bite, align their teeth, and address any remaining issues from Phase 1. Our friendly and experienced team is dedicated to ensuring your child is comfortable and happy during the process. We believe that everyone deserves a healthy, confident smile, and we're here to help make that happen.

Types of Braces
Metal braces have come a long way since the traditional, bulky brackets of the past. The modern metal braces we use today are smaller, more comfortable, and more efficient than ever before. This means shorter treatment times and less discomfort for our patients.
Additionally, many patients enjoy expressing their personality with fun-colored elastics that attach the archwire to the brackets. These elastics come in various colors, allowing patients to customize their braces with a pop of color that shows off their personality or hop on a trend. With our high-quality metal braces, you can achieve a beautiful, confident smile without sacrificing style or comfort.
Clear or ceramic braces are an excellent option for patients who want to straighten their teeth with a more subtle look. The brackets are made of transparent material that blends in with the natural color of your teeth, making them less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
In addition to being a discreet option for orthodontic treatment, ceramic braces are also durable and reliable. The clear or tooth-colored material used to make the braces is made of high-quality ceramic resistant to staining and discoloration. This means that even if you enjoy coffee, tea, or other staining beverages, your braces will remain clear and discreet throughout your treatment.
