Get a Beautiful Smile At Any Age
We believe everyone should be able to get quality orthodontic care and a beautiful smile.
We’re proud to offer a full range of orthodontics for children, teens, and adults at our offices in Charlottesville and Crozet, VA.
Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are
When your teeth are properly aligned, it’s easier to keep them clean by flossing and brushing, which in turn helps to prevent other oral issues, including some that can affect your overall health.
A Healthy, Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successfully completed orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, give you a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for maybe the first time ever!
Untreated Oral Issues
Will Get Worse
Delaying or refusing orthodontic treatment when it's needed can create long-term health issues that will wind up costing you more in the end.
Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics recognizes that children, teens, and adults will all have different dental needs, requiring a different level of attention and care.
We work diligently with each patient to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment for you in the most inviting environment.
Orthodontics for Children
There’s no minimum age for your child to begin orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child receive their first orthodontic evaluation by around the age of seven.
By this time, your child should have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth.
This makes it easier for Dr. Glassick or Dr. Hamer to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems before they have the chance to become more severe.
Orthodontics for Teens
If you have a teen who recently learned braces can improve their smile, you probably have lots of questions.
You may be feeling nervous or worried when you think about beginning the process.
But there’s no need to worry – bulky, uncomfortable metal braces are a thing of the past.
Today’s braces are smaller, sleeker, and far more comfortable than ever before.
Choose Your Look
Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to choose from, both fixed and removable.
These options include:
- Traditional metal braces
- Ceramic braces
- Invisalign for Teens
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teens. In fact, one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of 21.
Although the thought of wearing braces as an adult can be intimidating, several options are discreet but effective.
At Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics, we offer ceramic braces, which blend in closely with your own smile, and Invisalign, a clear aligner system that's nearly invisible.
