Welcome to Granite Coast Orthodontics
At Granite Coast Orthodontics we believe orthodontic care is an essential part of overall well-being, in regards to both oral and general health. Serving the beautiful areas of Rockport, Rockland, and Camden, ME (Maine) and all of midcoast Maine, Dr. Douglas Laliberte and his team of knowledgeable staff members can give you or your child an amazing smile that will last a lifetime.
First visit to the orthodontist should be around age 7.
While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting the orthodontist around age seven. Early treatment allows your orthodontist to correct and guide your child’s jaw, create more space for crowded teeth, avoid the need for extractions later in life, and correct thumb sucking and minor speech problems. There are a few things to watch for that may mean your child needs to see an orthodontist, such as crowded or misplaced teeth, difficulty chewing or biting, mouth breathing, thumb sucking, or popping jaws.
It is our goal to treat you with care and respect while providing you with an ideal smile that is the perfect combination of oral health and stability as well as aesthetics. To do this, we use only the best treatment options available, including metal and clear braces, Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen™ clear aligners, Clarity™, and Simpli5™.
We want to give you a beautiful smile with improved oral health that helps you to develop more confidence and an enhanced self image for the rest of your life. Please feel free to contact our Rockport orthodontic office to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Laliberte and the Granite Coast Orthodontics team!
