Your Board-Certified Orthodontist in Medford
Meet Dr. Keyan Botsford
What a privilege it is to work with so many wonderful patients and families! I feel incredibly grateful to be in a profession that I absolutely love. There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like I am making a difference in the lives of those in my community.
Orthodontics is about so much more than achieving a great smile, although who can complain about that? It’s what that smile can do—helping individuals build their confidence and self-esteem to excel in other aspects of their lives—that is so meaningful to me.
Orthodontic Care for Patients of All Ages
Orthodontic treatment knows no age limits. At our Medford office, we believe everyone deserves a confident, beautiful smile. That's why our team of orthodontic specialists provides a range of treatment options, including braces and Invisalign, tailored to children, teenagers, and adults. Experience exceptional orthodontic care for patients of all ages at our Medford location.
Orthodontics for children
It may come as a surprise to parents that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic check-up for children by age 7. At our Medford office, we prioritize your child's health, ensuring their teeth and jaws are properly aligned for a healthy bite.
By age 7, your child's teeth and jaw will have developed enough for our experts to identify any potential issues. This check-up doesn't automatically mean your child needs braces. We may determine that their bite is healthy or recommend monitoring it until the appropriate age for treatment. Each smile is unique, and early intervention may be necessary in certain cases.
Early treatment allows us to monitor jaw growth and address issues in their early stages, reducing the overall treatment time significantly.
Orthodontic care for teens
One common question from teens is how long they'll wear braces. Each case is unique, so there's no one-size-fits-all answer. Rest assured, our Medford team is dedicated to creating their most beautiful smile. Today's braces are far superior, offering various styles, materials, and colors that are smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than those of previous generations.
Our teen patients have options beyond traditional metal braces. They can choose discreet, ceramic braces that blend with their teeth while providing the same results. For those who prefer wire-free options, clear aligners like Invisalign gradually straighten teeth using removable, transparent trays.
At our Medford office, we offer exceptional orthodontic care tailored to children and teens, ensuring confident smiles and optimal oral health.
You may be surprised to learn that adults make up roughly 20 percent of all orthodontic patients these days. With more adults than ever looking to achieve their beautiful, forever smiles, orthodontic treatment is clearly not just for children and teens.
Adults often choose to pursue orthodontics later in life because they realize how important maintaining their oral health is or they want to feel better about the way their smile looks. Other times we see adults who received orthodontic treatment when they were younger, but need a "touch up" to restore their former smiles.
At Botsford Family Orthodontics, we recognize that children, teens, and adults will all have different dental needs and need different levels of attention and care. We're committed to working diligently with each patient to ensure that they receive the most appropriate treatment and in the most inviting environment.
