Straighter Teeth for a Stronger Smile

Girl with bracesOrthodontists are dental professionals who treat patients for issues such as TMJ and crowded teeth. Braces are one of the most common procedures. Despite popular belief, braces aren’t only a cosmetic solution.They are also a great way to correct jaw and tooth alignment problems.

As a general rule, you should bring your child to see the orthodontist by about age 7. Your dentist will let you know when it’s time for your child’s first orthodontist visit. By getting into the orthodontist’s office early, you can discover issues early on and set a treatment plan in place to correct issues before they become severe.

Woodmen Dental Group offers the advantage of housing all necessary dental professionals in one location. We are able to refer all patients in need of orthodontic treatment to our in-house specialist, Dr. Lou Taloumis.

Dr. Taloumis completed his Orthodontic Residency in Fort Meade, MD and got his D.M.D. from Tufts University.

Dr. Taloumis is able to craft straighter smiles using the following techniques:

Invisalign: The flexibility of Invisalign, as well as the fact that it’s nearly invisible, makes this a popular treatment for adults. Compared to braces, Invisalign treatment times tend to be speedier. Since it requires serious self-discipline, it is not an ideal option for children.

Braces: Braces are a common treatment for children ages 9-14. Though total time in braces varies among cases, most patients have them removed after 1-2 years.
