Choose Your Treatment
Dr. Oral Francis offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to choose from, both fixed and removable.
Orthodontics for Adults
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teens. In fact, one in every five Decatur Orthodontics patients is over the age of 21.
Orthodontics for Teens
If you have a teen in Decatur who recently learned braces can improve their smile, you probably have lots of questions. Find your answers here.
Orthodontics for Children
There’s no minimum age for your child to begin orthodontic treatment, but Dr. Francis and the American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child receive their first orthodontic evaluation by around the age of seven.
Why Should You Think About Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth
When your teeth are correctly 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 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.
Decatur 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.
