3 Ways Your Whole Family Can Benefit From Orthodontic Care

It’s never too late for everyone in the whole family to benefit from orthodontic care in Port Orange. And not only that – most of the time, kids who need orthodontic treatment can get started sooner than you may think!

No matter if you’ve never had orthodontic treatment before or you’re looking for a new family orthodontist in Port Orange after moving here, Dr. Marielle Beauchamp and her team will make your life and treatment easier.

Your orthodontic care options will vary based on your age and condition. Good orthodontic treatment leads to greater confidence, a healthier and nicer smile, and an easier time speaking and chewing (especially for kids!)

Let’s look at some of the best orthodontic treatments for kids, teens, and adults:

The Best Orthodontic Treatments for Kids

Anyone can get terrific results from orthodontic treatment at any age, but kids will get the fastest results even if they have relatively severe orthodontic concerns. By getting an early start with orthodontic care, you help make it easier for kids to take care of their teeth and gums throughout their lives!


Expanders are used to stretch the soft palate and create more space in the mouth so the permanent “adult” teeth have more room to erupt. This ensures that teeth won’t come in “impacted,” meaning they’re at the wrong angle to completely erupt from the gums. That can be very painful and often requires surgery.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are common for young patients who have only just gotten the last of their permanent teeth. We make metal braces fun at Beauchamp Orthodontics by letting kids customize their braces with colored bands in their favorite colors. Dr. Beauchamp is the best when it comes to explaining orthodontic care to kids!

Two-Phase Treatment

Two-phase treatment is an approach to total orthodontic wellness that combines the use of expanders followed by metal braces. Two-phase treatment is the best bet for many kids, giving them the healthiest start possible. A two-phase treatment will prevent impacted teeth and ensure permanent teeth are straight and strong.

Clear Plastic Aligners

Clear plastic aligners such as the renowned Invisalign® brand can be appropriate for children as young as eight years of age. Dr. Beauchamp will let you know if your little one has enough permanent teeth to qualify for the Invisalign® treatment. The details of the misalignment issue and how responsible a child is expected to be in terms of taking care of their aligners do have to be considered too.

The Best Orthodontic Treatments for Teens

Many teens are a little bit more fashion-conscious when it comes to their braces, and we get it! That’s why we have plenty of subtle and discreet options that teens will love. Most teens qualify for our clear plastic aligners. However, if a teen has severe orthodontic issues that can only be treated with braces, clear braces are a smooth move!

Same-Day Braces

Teens are always on the go, so a faster alternative to regular braces can be just right for them. With Same-day braces they will get treatment started as soon as possible without even having to book a separate appointment so you can start on braces. Instead, your teen will get them right after their orthodontic checkup.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are an outstanding orthodontic treatment option for anyone who wants the full power of braces along with a more discreet appearance. Clear braces are made of similar material to clear plastic aligners, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. And they use our signature “small form factor” design, too!

Clear Plastic Aligners

Clear plastic aligners are easily the best option when you want to “go stealth” with your orthodontic care. You might not even be able to see them when you look in the mirror! Plus, you can remove them when it’s time to eat, play sports, or remove and clean them.

The Best Orthodontic Treatments for Adults

Adults can truly get the most out of orthodontic care with Beauchamp Orthodontics. We understand how your needs change with age and we’re always here to help you get the healthy and confident smile you want!

Clear Plastic Aligners

Clear plastic aligners are the go-to option for adults here at Beauchamp Orthodontics. Most adults are sure to qualify unless they happen to have a very specific or severe type of tooth misalignment that aligners alone can’t treat.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are a wonderful alternative to clear plastic aligners. Most people will never know you’re wearing them, even when having a face-to-face conversation. They are easy to care for and a truly hassle-free option.
