Your new smile starts with a complimentary consultation
Your first visit to our Lewisville office will consist of a comprehensive examination by Dr. Krieger, as well as a set of diagnostic records including x-rays, study models, and photos of your face and teeth. This information will be used to develop a customized treatment plan that is specific to your needs.
Our Carrollton orthodontic team are committed to helping our patients understand what to expect from the treatment process. We will make every effort to address any questions and concerns you may have during this initial visit. We’ll also take time to thoroughly discuss our treatment fees, describe our financing options, and help verify your insurance benefits.
Starting your Carrollton orthodontics treatment process
Our Carrollton orthodontic staff work hard to provide a comfortable, warm, and welcoming environment for patients! Once your orthodontic appliance has been placed, we’ll schedule follow-up appointments approximately every 4-8 weeks, depending on the type of treatment.
Here at Krieger Orthodontics in Carrollton, we can assist you with correcting a range of orthodontic issues, including:
- Teeth that are crowded
- Teeth that are spaced too far apart
- Missing lateral incisors
- Early orthodontic issues
- Open bite (the front teeth don't touch)
- Deep overbite (the lower front teeth bite into the palate)
- Underbite (the lower teeth are in front of the upper teeth)
- Overjet (protruding front teeth)
Carrollton orthodontics treatment options for children
There is no exact minimum age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by no later than the age of seven. By this age, most children will have a good mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for orthodontists like Dr. Krieger to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems early. This reduces the risk of dental issues becoming more severe and requiring more serious treatment in the future.
Carrollton orthodontics options for teens
If you suspect your teen could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you’re both likely to have questions. You may be feeling nervous about the unknown, and your teen may be feeling worried when considering wearing braces or aligner. This is an entirely common reaction, but fortunately, it’s also a temporary one! The bulky, uncomfortable metal braces of the past have given way to the smaller, sleeker braces available today. Modern orthodontic appliances are comfortable, stylish, and available in a variety of styles, materials, and colors.
Krieger Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to teens in need of corrective treatment. Fixed and removable options are available depending on the individual case. These options include:
- Traditional metal braces
- Clear braces
- Lingual braces
Carrollton orthodontics for adults
Many adults are now choosing to seek orthodontic care later in life. In fact, about 1 in 5 current orthodontic patients is over the age of 21! Modern orthodontics offer multiple discreet but effective ways to straighten adult smiles, including clear braces and clear aligner systems like Invisalign.
Some of the most common issues we see in adult patients contemplating orthodontic treatment are:
- a bad bite (malocclusion) causing the teeth to fit together incorrectly
- the teeth are too crowded, or spaced too far apart
- any abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
