Orthodontic Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children receive an evaluation for orthodontic treatment by the time they reach 7 years old. Our Gainesville and Lake City, FL, orthodontists follow this guideline but also want to encourage anyone outside of this age to still pursue options if desired.

Here’s what you need to know about the types of treatments we provide, the ages we treat, and recommended care that comes with braces or aligners.

Treatment Types Gainesville Orthodontists

Treatment Types

While our core forms of treatment include clear aligners, metal braces, and ceramic braces, our orthodontists also offer supplemental options that can further enhance your final results. Diode laser treatment, the Carriere® Distalizer™, and surgical orthodontics can all be included in your specific plan depending on the level of correction that needs to take place.

Treatment For All Ages Lake City Orthodontists


The beauty of orthodontic treatment is that it can start young or at any time beyond the teenage years. While our orthodontists have worked with plenty of children and teens, we’ve also helped countless adults and seniors as well. If you’re after that dream smile and improved oral health, go for it! There is no “perfect” patient.

Orthodontic Care Florida


Brushing and flossing with braces, emergency situations, and steering clear of certain foods. All of these topics are important to consider when you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. If general rules or tips from our orthodontists are not followed properly for the duration of your treatment, you could risk delayed results or costly corrections.
