Orthodontics for Children

Every child is unique and deserves personalized, attentive care. That's exactly what you'll find at Orthobar! We'll treat your children like family by giving them the best care in an environment that makes them feel at home.

So, when should you schedule that first orthodontic check-up? We're glad you asked!

The American Association of Orthodontists and our doctors recommend that your child get their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems or by age seven.

By age seven, your child's teeth have developed enough for Dr. Petersen to detect any potential issues with emerging teeth and jaw growth before they lose all of their primary teeth.

We'll celebrate together if we don't see any oral issues at your child's check-up! If we do identify any issues, we'll recommend monitoring to keep an eye on things as your child continues to grow.

With proper monitoring, Dr. Petersen can determine the right time for treatment and which treatment option would give your child the best results.

Early treatment at our office in Las Vegas may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing, making treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.

Sometimes, Dr. Petersen can achieve results that may not be possible once your child's face and jaws have finished growing.

Orthodontics for Teens

The most common time for orthodontic treatment is during the teen years — so common, in fact, that they've almost become a rite of passage!

Why is that, you may wonder. During adolescence, your teen's teeth and jaw have developed enough for Dr. Petersen to recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues.

By this time, your teen's teeth and jaw are also strong enough to support treatment and get the best results, guaranteeing a future full of healthy smiles!

At Orthobar, your teen can choose between Invisalign, Spark clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each offers unique benefits while transforming your teen's smile.

Teens often view orthodontics as a significant milestone in their journey to adulthood. It's a time when braces become a part of life, but also a symbol of the exciting transformation ahead. With a bit of patience and dedication, teens discover that the end result is worth every adjustment. Plus, with today's advanced technology, all the different options can make the journey even more seamless, fitting into busy schedules and social lives.

Orthodontics for Adults

It's never too late to take care of yourself and get the smile of your dreams with Orthobar! Orthodontics is for all ages, not just the younger crowd.

Your teeth don't stop moving after your teen years, so if you've noticed some shifting in your smile, adult orthodontics could be your solution.

A crooked smile has more than just aesthetic effects on your life — a misaligned bite can also cause jaw pain, headaches, trouble cleaning your teeth properly, and more.

Dr. Petersen can help you get your smile back with comfortable, convenient treatment options for adults in Las Vegas.

More than Straighter Smiles

Orthodontic treatment does more than straighten your smile! Just check out these amazing benefits:

Straight Teeth Are Healthier

When teeth are properly aligned, keeping them clean is easier. This prevents issues like cavities and tooth decay that can affect overall health. Oral health is closely linked to overall health. By correcting dental issues through orthodontic treatment, you may reduce the risk of systemic health problems associated with poor oral hygiene.

Better Confidence & Self-Esteem

Successful orthodontic treatment at Orthobar can boost self-esteem and improve quality of life, empowering individuals to smile more confidently and engage more fully in social and professional activities.

Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse

If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when your orthodontist recommends it, you may develop long-term health issues that may cost you more.

Prevention of Dental Damage

Misaligned teeth can put excessive stress on certain teeth, leading to premature wear and tear. Orthodontic treatment can redistribute forces evenly across the teeth, preventing damage and preserving their longevity.
