Orthodontics

Prevention Now…or Braces Later

​You trust Dr. Peters to take care of your child’s routine dental care. But did you know that he also has extensive orthodontics training? He sees children at the most crucial ages, between 6 and 11, when they have a mix of baby and permanent teeth, and his thorough knowledge of craniofacial growth and development allows him to identify and correct teeth and jaw disharmony early, saving you money.

Early correction by a trained dentist can save thousands of dollars from seeing a specialist and prevent unnecessary extractions of permanent teeth as a teen. Dr. Peters can address early crowding of front teeth, crossbites in the back teeth, and mismatch of upper and lower jaws, thus correcting these in less than 6 - 18 months before they get to their teenage stage.

Orthodontics – How long will it take?
Using the latest in modern techniques, Dr. Peters can now make braces more comfortable and attractive than ever. It used to be that a child or adult might spend 3 - 5 years in treatment. It’s not that way any more! The time needed for treatment will vary from person to person but usually can be completed in 6 - 24 months or less.​

Orthodontics Without Braces?  Is This Possible?
It’s true! With Invisalign™ it is possible to have straight teeth in as little as 9 - 15 months! No braces, wires, or headgear! And the best part is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth because – it’s invisible! The Invisalign system is easily removable and allows you to eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and brushing and flossing are no problem!​
