Orthodontics for Children
Dr. Bowen and our team at Bowen Family Orthodontics will treat your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care.
The American Association of Orthodontists and Dr. Bowen recommend that your child have their first orthodontic evaluation at the first sign of orthodontic problems, or no later than age seven.
Your child's teeth have developed enough by this age to allow Dr. Bowen to spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth before your child loses all of their baby teeth.
Your check-up at Bowen Family Orthodontics may reveal that your child's bite is fine, and braces for kids aren't necessary at this time.
Or, Dr. Bowen may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development for a while and starting treatment if and when Dr. Bowen thinks it’s appropriate for your child.
Early treatment at our office in Mullica Hill may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
In some cases, Dr. Bowen can achieve results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
Orthodontics for Teens
For teens around the Mullica Hill area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Bowen Family Orthodontics is during adolescence, between 11-16.
Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Bowen can easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range.
Your teen’s bone and jaw structure have also formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Bowen Family Orthodontics, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, clear ceramic braces, or fun, customizable braces from WildSmiles. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Orthodontics for Adults
Your smile is the first thing other people around Mullica Hill notice about you. Do you love yours?
You’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment with Dr. Bowen, and that’s why we offer orthodontic treatment for adults at Bowen Family Orthodontics.
Dr. Bowen uses orthodontic forces to move teeth in the same way for both adults and children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after the teen years. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life. This can cause jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile that makes you unhappy.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Why Should You Think About Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. Bowen aligns your teeth correctly, it’s easier for you to clean them through regular brushing and flossing. This helps prevent other oral issues, including some affecting your overall health.
A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successful orthodontic treatment at Bowen Family Orthodontics can help boost your self-esteem, create a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for maybe the first time.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Bowen recommends it, you may develop long-term health issues that could cost you more in the end.
At Bowen Family Orthodontics, our team understands that kids, teens, and adults have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
We’ll work for you to make sure you receive the most appropriate treatment at our inviting office in Mullica Hill.
