Serving Children, Teens
Smiles For Colorado Orthodontics commits to giving you the opportunity to enjoy orthodontic care and a vibrant straight smile.
At our two Colorado Springs offices, Dr. Terry offers you a complete range of treatment options. Whether you’re a child, teen, or adult, we have something for you.
Orthodontics for Kids
Dr. Terry and our Smiles for Colorado Orthodontics team treats your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care.
The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. Terry, recommend that children should first see an orthodontist around the age of seven years old. An orthodontic examination may help detect facial or oral irregularities early.
By age seven, your child's teeth have developed enough to allow our expert doctors at Smiles for Colorado Orthodontics to spot small problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth.
Or, Dr. Terry might observe a developing problem but recommend temporarily monitoring your child's growth and development. Following that, we can initiate treatment at the appropriate time if Dr. Terry still thinks it’s appropriate for your child.
Early treatment at our offices in Colorado Springs may prevent or intercept more severe issues from worsening and make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
In some cases, Dr. Terry can achieve results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
Orthodontics for Teenagers
Adolescence becomes complicated at times. But teens in the Colorado Springs area can rest assured at Smiles for Colorado Orthodontics, their orthodontic treatment will be as easy as possible.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Terry easily recognize issues with spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment in this age range.
Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Smiles for Colorado Orthodontics, your teen has options. Choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these alternatives offers particular benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Do you love your smile? Around Colorado Springs, your smile is the first thing others notice about you.
It’s never too late to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. Terry, and that’s why Smiles for Colorado Orthodontics offers clear aligners and braces for adults.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after your teen years. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease.
You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Dr. Terry can help with these problems and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you’ve always pined for. We can correct orthodontic problems at Smiles for Colorado Orthodontics just as easily for adults as for children.
Dr. Terry uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way for both adults and children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
