Do you want to straighten your child’s teeth? Or, have you always wanted to align your smile and think Invisalign is a good option? Whatever the case, you’ll find what you need at Global Smiles Orthodontics in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Edgar Mendieta provides orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages.
As a parent or guardian, we understand you want nothing but the best for your little one. When you want your child to wear a straight, healthy smile, we are here to help. Our office treats all children as our own by offering exceptional dental care.
Although children should start orthodontic treatment from age 11, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children get their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. We offer early orthodontic evaluation to give your child the best chance for a healthy, beautiful smile.
If your child is of appropriate age, we offer braces to help them achieve a straight smile. Metal braces help correct overlapping teeth, overcrowding, and bite issues (malocclusion) like overbites and crossbites. Our range of braces includes colored options, allowing your child to straighten their smile with their preferred color braces.
In today’s world of selfies, social media, and Instagram filters, teenagers are experiencing increased pressure more than ever to wear a perfect smile. While we understand that inner beauty matters, we have what it takes to help your teenage child achieve a confident smile.
We provide traditional braces for teenagers. While you might be worried about “train track” braces, modern braces are smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever. They also come with different designs and colors to suit different needs.
If your teen is apprehensive about metal braces, we have yet another orthodontic solution. We offer clear braces for teens to straighten smiles with comfort and discreteness. Clear braces like Invisalign are removable but must be worn for 20-22 hours daily for effectiveness.
If you missed straightening your teeth as a child or teenager, you are never too old to enjoy a perfectly aligned smile. Thanks to modern orthodontics, more and more adults are open to straightening teeth, and you, too, can begin your journey today.
Our office provides the below orthodontic options for adults.
Once you complete your orthodontic treatment, we’ll offer a retainer to keep your results intact. Unlike Invisalign aligners, retainers are worn only at night and less frequently after your teeth become grounded in their new positions.
Everyone deserves a well-aligned smile. Global Smiles Orthodontics is proud to offer a full range of orthodontics for children, teens, and adults.
