Belmar Orthodontics Lakewood: Treatment Philosophy

Dr. Hardy has been specially trained to offer our younger patients the gentle and careful care and attention they need so they can look forward to their visits with us. Through open communication and patient education, we work with young patients and their parents to make orthodontic treatment as pleasant as possible.  Although we employ a conservative approach at Belmar Orthodontics–only putting on braces if your child needs them– Dr. Hardy believes in the importance of bringing your child to an orthodontist at an early age (age 7) to ensure there are no severe dental issues that could be more easily resolved with early treatment.   Early treatment can be beneficial and/or necessary for some young patients, but most children will not require braces until they have reached their early teens.  This conservative approach saves our patients (and their parents) time, hassle, and unnecessary expenses.  Our expert team of dental professionals will help your child to obtain and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile!

Choosing a Specialist

Choosing a specialist for your orthodontic care is one of the most important steps to getting the beautiful smile you desire. Different orthodontists use different approaches for straightening teeth and optimizing your oral health.  You want to make sure you are getting the best. Dr. Hardy  focuses on the overall aesthetics of the face – not just your teeth. Belmar Orthodontics offers a variety of treatment options – including traditional bracesceramic clear bracesIncognito Lingual Braces and Invisalign® – and prioritizes patient education so the patients themselves can make the final decisions regarding their orthodontic care.  In addition, Dr. Hardy specializes in working with children and teens to make their orthodontic treatment as comfortable and convenient as possible.
