Have You Ever Wondered How Orthodontics Works?

Orthodontia may seem extremely complicated and sometimes overwhelming for some patients in Oakland County, MI, but Petrous Orthodontics patients are treated to feel at ease throughout the entire treatment process.

We’ve created this cheat sheet that will help to answer any questions you may have about orthodontia in Oakland County, MI:

1. At what age should I or my child seek orthodontic treatment?

Dr. Jerek Petrous and Dr. John Marx say that this question has no right answer; every individual has a different set of teeth and different needs for orthodontic treatment in Oakland County, MI. Petrous Orthodontics specializes in providing treatment to both children and adults. Petrous Orthodontics suggests a childhood examination at around age seven. This is the age when most of our teeth have all grown, and it allows Dr. Petrous, Dr. Marx and the team at Petrous Orthodontics to stay on top of any orthodontic issues before they become big issues!

2. How do I know which kind of braces are right for me?

The answer to this is simple; you don’t have to know! When you come to our orthodontic office in Oakland County, MI for an appointment, Dr. Petrous, Dr. Marx and the Petrous Orthodontics team will examine your mouth and evaluate what will need to be done in terms of length and complexity of the orthodontic treatment. Dr. Petrous and Dr. Marx will work with you to decide which kind of braces best suits your lifestyle. So don’t worry, Petrous Orthodontics will help figure out what is right for you and will give you the proper guidance for your orthodontics in Oakland County, MI.

3. Can I just get Invisalign from my dentist?

Recently, many dentists in Oakland County, MI have started to offer orthodontic treatments with Invisalign. While working with your general dentist may seem like a more convenient option, it is a much better idea to get Invisalign from Petrous Orthodontics. Dr. Jerek Petrous and Dr. John Marx are certified orthodontists, which means straightening and realigning teeth is their specialty. Unlike a dentist, Dr. Petrous and Dr. Marx have seen many cases and treated all kinds of patients with Invisalign and other systems. This experience allows for better accuracy and outstanding results. Plus, the Petrous Orthodontics staff is here to help you integrate the Invisalign system into your lifestyle and make your orthodontics experience in Oakland County, MI as enjoyable as possible.
