Serving Children, Teens & Adults
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy orthodontic care and a stunningly straight smile.
At Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer a full range of orthodontics for children, teens, and adults at our offices in Midland and Bay City.
Braces & Invisalign
Midland, West Branch & Bay City
At Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics, you’ll find the latest fixed and removable orthodontic appliances to choose from, like:
- Clear Braces
- Metal Braces
Orthodontics for Children
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children see an orthodontist right around their seventh birthday. At this age, your doctor at Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics can correct problems using jaw growth to our advantage, allowing us to avoid things like tooth extraction and surgery.
Benefits of early treatment include:
- Correcting jaw growth
- Regulating the width of the upper and lower arches
- Creating more space for crowded teeth
- Avoiding the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
- Correcting thumb sucking and help improve minor speech problems
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around the Midland and Bay City area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics is between the ages of 11-16.
Our team of experienced orthodontists can easily recognize issues with spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment in this age range. Your teen’s bone and jaw structure are also formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Nationwide, about 1 in every 5 patients is over the age of 18. This means that you are far from alone in correcting your smile while into adulthood. We have long treated adults and know how to manage common complications with adult orthodontic care, including gum or bone loss, worn or missing teeth, and orthodontic care that is incomplete from their youth.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After your orthodontist properly aligns your teeth, it’s easier for you to clean them with a regular oral hygiene routine. This helps prevent other oral issues, including some that can affect your overall health.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when our doctors recommend it you may develop long-term health issues that may wind up costing you more in the end.
At Great Lakes Bay Orthodontics, our team understands that kids, teens, and adults all have different 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 inviting offices in Midland and Bay City.
