Serving Children, Teens & Adults
Dr. Wedding and Dr. Thompson believe that you deserve a beautiful smile no matter your age. Whether you’re seven or seventy-five, we’ve got you covered!
Our Owensboro orthodontic team offers a full range of the latest treatments for children, teens, and adults at our state-of-the-art office.
Orthodontics for Children
You never want your child to experience teasing or bullying as a parent. Early treatment can help prevent that from happening! If your child’s teeth are crooked, we can start orthodontic treatment so their teeth will be straight and healthy with no problem.
According to the American Association of Orthodontics, your child’s first visit to Wedding Orthodontics should come no later than age seven.
Visiting by age seven helps Dr. Wedding and Dr. Thompson identify early conditions like improper jaw growth or tooth eruption and crowding problems.
You’ll also want to prevent future orthodontics issues, and it’s easier to straighten a child’s teeth and jaw while growing. We thrive off the opportunity to impact your child’s self-esteem and self-image positively.
Orthodontics for Teens
While teens may feel apprehensive about treatment, in the beginning, orthodontic treatment is most common between ages 11 and 16. That means you won’t be alone while straightening your smile!
Dr. Wedding and Dr. Thompson can identify and treat issues with spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment in this age range, and the bone and jaw structures are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Wedding Orthodontics, teens can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming smiles.
Orthodontics for Adults
Did you know that one in five Wedding Orthodontics patients are adults? Whether or not you've had orthodontic treatment as a teen, we offer a wide range of treatment options to fit your needs.
We understand you’re busy so we’re committed to working with you to give you the best possible experience and outcome. It's never too late to enjoy your beautiful smile and most confident self.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you can develop 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. Wedding and Dr. Thompson can address these issues more through orthodontic treatment, so know that it’s never too late to enjoy your most beautiful smile and most confident self.
You’ll get the rockstar treatment you deserve to get the stunning results you've been dreaming about at Wedding Orthodontics. Contact our Owensboro office today to schedule your free consultation!
