Dr. Adams’ Treatment Experience!

Orthodontic Treatments

  • Dr. Adams’ experience has taught him that in order to achieve excellent results, patients must start their treatments at the right time and be completed in two years or less. Therefore, with few exceptions, Dr. Adams only starts comprehensive orthodontic treatment after the permanent teeth have erupted. If an orthodontist starts treatment too early, then he or she is waiting for permanent teeth to erupt, dooming the patient to be in braces for years. This latter scenario leads to patient burnout and gum disease and cavities and scarring of the teeth. Ultimately, it leads to poor results and negative dental health consequences.

  • Early treatment for patients 7 to 10 years of age is rare. For the most part, Dr. Adams sees these patients for regular recall appointments every six months until their permanent teeth erupt. If early treatment is needed though, then Dr. Adams ensures that it is completed within six months and the cost is nominal to keep parents’ total orthodontic costs as low as possible.

  • Dr. Adams’ experience has taught him that patients need to be seen and treated every month, especially by the orthodontist. This allows for treatment to progress more quickly and be completed within the estimated treatment time, less than 2 years. It also allows the orthodontist the opportunity to regularly check patients’ oral hygiene or brushing, check for broken / loose appliances and address poor compliance issues with patients, for example not wearing their rubber bands. By doing all this, patients achieve better results! That is the ultimate goal!

  • Dr. Adams devises treatment plans for patients so that the result will last for the rest of their lives. He wishes to achieve healthy and stable bites that will prevent future dental pain and suffering and prevent expensive future dental care. He also wishes to achieve beautiful, confident smiles to improve one’s confidence in himself or herself. In essence, his goal is to enhance other people’s lives and Dr. Adams is so honored and privileged to have the opportunity to be of service to his patients.
