Braces

When Should I See An Orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child’s first evaluation with an orthodontist should happen no later than the age of seven or at the first sign of orthodontic problems. Not only does orthodontic treatment perfect beautiful smiles it also helps boost confidence, enables a healthier lifestyle, and can serve as prevention for more serious future dental work for you or your child.

At Rediger Orthodontics we provide custom orthodontic treatment plans for kids, teens, and adults in Arnold and Festus, Missouri as well as the surrounding communities.

Our Technology Saves You Time!

At Rediger, we use self-ligating braces (American Orthodontics) that do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on each tooth. Therefore taking less time out of your schedule with less time spent in the chair or in the orthodontists office.

How it works:

  1. It starts with a personal consultation where you will receive a smile scan using one of our state-of-the-art iTero Element® scanners or receive impressions from a mold.  
  2. With these images and molds, your doctor can create a treatment plan to precisely plot every tooth movement throughout the course of your treatment.
  3. Once this treatment plan has been devised, your orthodontist can present your customized treatment plan.
  4. Once your treatment plan has been finalized and agreed upon, your braces will be bonded and you begin your journey to a perfect smile!
