About Orthodontics

Answers to common questions

Why Orthodontics?

More benefits than just a great smile.

Many patients come to our office because they dislike their smile and understand that there is no better time than now, to begin smiling with confidence. However, there are many other benefits of orthodontic treatment, including easier cleaning of teeth, improved biting and chewing, increased longevity and durability of teeth, improvement of facial development, and relief from joint pain and headaches.

Do I need a referral?

Accepting patients with or without a referral.

While we definitely appreciate our referring dentists, a dentist referral is not required to receive treatment at Bailey Family Orthodontics. In fact, many of our patients join our practice on the recommendation of family and friends who are currently experiencing, or have already experienced, the excellent clinical results of orthodontic care at Bailey Family Orthodontics.

When to Start?

Depending on age or situation, it might be now.


The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that an orthodontic consultation take place by 7 years of age. Dr. Bailey evaluates each child to determine if orthodontic treatment is required and whether to begin treatment immediately or wait until the child is older. When treatment is needed for a younger child, we call this Phase I, or interceptive orthodontics. This treatment is performed to remedy problems before they become worse. When orthodontic treatment is required as a child, future treatment is easier, quicker, and more economical.


The timing of orthodontic treatment of teenagers depends on the problems to be addressed, and their severity. Treatment is most efficient when children are growing and their bone is still developing. Most comprehensive orthodontic treatment of teenagers begins when all permanent teeth have erupted, or are close to eruption. When teenagers are not quite ready for treatment, Dr. Bailey will evaluate teens every 6 months to determine the optimal time to begin.


The best time to begin treatment as an adult is now. Why put off having that perfect smile and bite you’ve been waiting for? It’s never too late to enjoy the benefits of orthodontics.
