Orthodontics for Children
Dr. Streiff and our team at Draper Elite Orthodontics will treat your children like our own by giving them personalized, high-quality orthodontic care.
The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. Streiff recommend that your child should get their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems, or no later than age seven.
Your child's teeth have developed enough by this age to allow our expert doctors at Draper Elite Orthodontics to spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.
Your child’s check-up in our Draper office may reveal that your child's bite is fine, and braces for kids aren't necessary at this time.
Or, Dr. Streiff may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development, for the time being. After that, we can begin treatment at the appropriate time if Dr. Streiff still thinks it’s appropriate for your child.
Early treatment with Draper Elite Orthodontics may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
In some cases, Dr. Streiff can achieve results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around the Draper area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Draper Elite Orthodontics is during adolescence, between the ages of 11-16.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Streiff easily recognize issues with spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment in this age range. Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Draper Elite Orthodontics, your teen can choose between clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Your smile is the first thing other people around Draper notice about you. Do you love yours?
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after the teen years. Teeth that seemed 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.
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. Streiff, and that’s why we offer orthodontics for adults at Draper Elite Orthodontics.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Dr. Streiff can address these issues and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you’ve always dreamed about. We can correct orthodontic problems at Draper Elite Orthodontics just as easily for adults as for children.
Dr. Streiff uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way for both 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 Draper Elite Orthodontics can help boost your self-confidence, increase your quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for maybe the first time.
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. Streiff properly aligns your teeth, it’s easier for you to clean them through regular flossing and brushing. This helps prevent other oral issues, including some problems that can affect your overall health.
Untreated Oral Issues
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Streiff recommends it, you may develop long-term health issues that will cost you more in the end.
At Draper Elite Orthodontics, our team understands that kids, teens, and adults have unique dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
We’ll work diligently for you to make sure you receive the most appropriate treatment at our welcoming Draper office.
