Committing to orthodontic treatment may feel like an intimidating decision at times, which is why Dr. Georgy and the rest of our team at Glenpool Braces want to help families feel as confident as possible. For added convenience, we’ve addressed several of the most popular frequently asked questions we regularly receive below. Are you not seeing the information you need?

Absolutely! In fact, Dr. Georgy strongly encourages parents to get an early start on orthodontic treatment for their son or daughter, as the jawbone and developing teeth are much more malleable. Our friendly, down-to-earth team does a great job at helping younger patients feel right at home from the very first visit, and they’ll certainly love spending time in our in-office movie theatre too.
We follow the American Association of Orthodontics’ recommendation, which is that children should undergo this important consultation around the age of seven at the latest. This will allow Dr. Georgy to pinpoint any concerning developments at the earliest stages possible and possibly provide interventive treatment that saves your family extensive cost and time down the road. Simply put, we want to help them enjoy their best smile as soon as possible!
