According to Humana, there are over 4 million Americans currently wearing braces, and of those wearing braces, a quarter of these are adults. With braces being so prevalent, it is clear they have major advantages for the dental health of many people. There are many benefits to braces, and as a result, every day people make the decision to obtain braces, commonly on the recommendation of their orthodontist.We all want that flawless smile to match the way you feel inside. However, life gets in the way. You may get bogged down with work, errands, responsibilities and activities. All of this makes it just too easy to put braces on the back-burner.

Kokomo Orthodontist | Peru Orthodontist | Ladd Orthodontics | Occlusions

It's National Orthodontic Health Month, and to celebrate I thought I'd show this cool video of Dr. Emerick discussing the different types of occlusions (bites) that patients present with. Orthodontic treatment not only corrects dentin misalignment, but it also allows for the ever important correction of malocclusions as well. As we age, our oral anatomy and teeth slowly migrate towards our midline (center of our body), and gravity pulls things down over time.  Proper orthodontic treatment at a young age can help prevent against the problems caused by this phenomena later on in life.  Most studies suggest orthodontic treatment should start sometime between age 7-14 depending on the patient's maturity and overall indications of their oral cavity.  I highly recommend reaching out to her and the Ladd Orthodontics team to schedule your FREE consultation, and learn what braces or Invisalign can do for you!

From Oral B: Patients with orthodontic problems can benefi…
