Orthodontics for Children

Do you know when the best time is to bring your child to Bellon Orthodontics? It is best for us to see your child by age seven. The first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time, allowing Dr. Bellon to evaluate most developing orthodontic problems.

Some severe problems need early treatment with a first phase lasting six to 12 months, followed by a second phase when all of the permanent teeth have erupted at approximately age 12. Crossbites that cause the lower jaw to shift, severe overbites, and underbites are problems that should be treated early.

Most children do not require early treatment, and it is best to wait until most of the baby teeth are out before starting braces. If no treatment is recommended at the time of the initial consultation, Dr. Bellon will see your child at least once a year at our Littleton or Denver orthodontic offices to monitor growth and development of the face, jaws, and teeth. This service is provided at no charge to you, and allows us to determine the best time to start treatment. We know you will appreciate our conservative approach.

Orthodontics for Adults

Orthodontic treatment can be meaningful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile. More and more adults are deciding it is not too late to transform their smiles for cosmetic reasons or to fix long standing dental problems. In fact one of every five of our Littleton and Denver orthodontic patients is over 21.

Advances in technology, such as clear braces and Invisalign® clear aligners, have made treatment an attractive choice for adults.

Adult treatment can differ from that of a child's in several ways. Often, the combined efforts of your general dentist and other dental specialists is required. Dr. Bellon can help you decide what treatment best suites your needs.
