Smiles For All Ages

bitakids

Children

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that all children be seen as early as age 7 to evaluate if any serious orthodontic conditions exist. An early evaluation can provide an opportunity to provide conservative treatment evaluations through monitoring of the shifting of teeth.

Teens

As a young adolescent, braces may likely be the last thing you want to get, but it is our goal at Dr. Bita Orthodontic Group to make your experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Treatment time will vary depending on the severity of the alignment and bite, but most importantly is your compliance. Keeping up with your treatment gets your braces off sooner!

Adults

Orthodontic treatment is no longer just for kids. We offer many treatment options tailored toward adults, including Invisalign and lingual (hidden) braces. Whether your teeth shifted after childhood braces or you’re ready to take the first step towards your dream smile, our team is here to help.
