Do you or your child have crooked teeth, spacing between your teeth, or an overbite? Braces can be an excellent option to treat these problems. At Tapestry Dental we offer customized braces for both children and adults.
We recommend an orthodontic screening for your child by age 7. Sometimes early interceptive treatment may be appropriate as the jaws are developing and the permanent teeth are coming on. Full treatment is usually started once all the permanent teeth have emerged. Typically the treatment time will be between 12-24 months.
As a general dentist, Dr. Kwan has a passion for orthodontics.
