Treatment for Children

Early treatment at Rise Orthodontics gives your child the best results. When kids are young, their jaws grow constantly to accommodate new teeth.

During this time, the teeth move easily with treatment, allowing for a shorter treatment time—especially in patients who undergo early treatment.

The American Association of Orthodontics and Dr. Ha recommend that you bring your child to their first orthodontic visit by age seven. At this age, the Rise Orthodontics team can start tracking your child’s jaw growth to screen for signs of early orthodontic issues.

Dr. Ha offers metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign First® treatments to kids and tweens in Modesto.

Two-Phase Treatment

Not every child needs early intervention, but for those that do, two-phase treatment is the way to go. At Rise Orthodontics, Dr. Ha uses this approach to align your child’s teeth and produce a functional bite in two main steps.

Usually, two-step orthodontic treatment begins between the ages of seven and nine, when many primary teeth remain in a child’s mouth. Your child will wear braces or Invisalign for a year or two during a period we call active treatment. Dr. Ha will see them again for another round of active treatment when they're a teenager.

Treatment for Teens

For teens around the Modesto area, the most common time for orthodontic treatment at Rise Orthodontics is during adolescence, between the ages of 11-16.

Experienced orthodontists like Dr. Ha easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range.

Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are developed enough to begin orthodontic treatment at our Modesto office.

At Rise Orthodontics, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.

Treatment for Adults

Did you know that one in every five of Dr. Ha’s patients is an adult? At Rise Orthodontics, we offer treatment plans for people of all ages. There’s no better time than now to get started on a beautiful smile!

It's Never Too Late!

There is no such thing as being too old for orthodontic treatment. More adults than ever are seeking straighter teeth for many more reasons than one.

From advancements in modern dentistry that allow for more discreet and less invasive orthodontic treatments to addressing other health issues, adult orthodontic treatment is your path to success.

Is Orthodontic Treatment Right for YOU?

Orthodontic treatment is a great way to boost the appearance of your smile, but there are many more reasons than just cosmetics to get braces or Invisalign in Modesto.

Your oral health is the gateway to your overall health, and a straight smile can help with digestion, sleep apnea, TMJ, and even prevent future orthodontic issues from getting worse.

Whether you’re a teen with a bad bite or an adult looking for a smile tune-up, orthodontic treatment may be right for you. At Rise Orthodontics, we treat patients of all ages and orthodontic conditions to give you the healthy smile you deserve.
