Treatment at Any Age 

If you recognize any of the following in your child or yourself, it might be time to speak with an orthodontist. It is never too late to consider treatment. 

  • ​​Early or late loss of baby teeth

  • Difficulty chewing or biting

  • Mouth breathing

  • Sucking the thumb or fingers, or other oral habits

  • Crowded, misplaced or blocked-out teeth

  • Jaws that shift, make sounds, protrude or are recessed

  • Speech difficulty

  • Biting the cheek or into the roof of the mouth

  • Protruding teeth

  • Teeth that meet in an abnormal way or don't meet at all

  • Facial imbalance or asymmetry 

  • Grinding or clenching of teeth

  • Inability to comfortably close lips

  • You feel a great smile will improve your self-esteem and self-confidence


The American Association of Orthodontists 

recommends that every child first visit the office at age 7. This may surprise you because orthodontic treatment is generally associated with adolescence. An early examination, however, is important to ensure maximum dental health for your child.


The following early warning signs may indicate that your child should have an orthodontic examination as soon as possible:

  • Difficulty in chewing

  • Open-mouth breathing

  • Thumb or finger sucking

  • Overlapping or crowding of erupting permanent teeth

  • Jaws that tend to click or pop

  • A developing underbite, overbite, protruding front teeth, or abnormal bite development



Dr. Gorin provides several orthodontic treatment options for teenagers, including clear ceramic braces, metal braces, Invisalign® Teen, and in older teens, accelerated orthodontics.  


Today, more and more adults are undergoing orthodontic treatment due to the increased awareness in the health benefits of having a proper bite and the increased self-esteem that comes with an attractive smile. 

At almost any age, healthy teeth, bones and gums respond well to orthodontic treatment. Dr. Gorin's options for adults include clear ceramic braces, metal braces, accelerated orthodontics and Invisalign®.
