“Am I Too Old for Braces?”

Absolutely not! Orthodontic treatment for adults is becoming more and more common. In fact, the number of adults getting braces has actually climbed 24 percent since 1996! More adults than ever are realizing that orthodontic treatment is not just for kids, and can help improve the aesthetics and health of a smile of any age! […]

Ask Dr. Boyd O. Whitlock: “I got my braces. Now what?”

We love when patients ask us that question! Now that you’re wearing braces, it’s just as important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen as you did prior to your orthodontic treatment. Braces are known to trap food particles and make it difficult to brush or remove plaque, which is why Dr. Boyd O. Whitlock […]

At Whitlock Orthodontics, we can’t believe it’s already June. As the school year comes to an end for a lot of Dr. Whitlock‘s patients, the days get longer and the temperatures in northwest Arkansas begin to climb a bit, there’s no better way to beat the heat than jump into a pool and cool off […]

When your teeth and jaws are not properly aligned, it may impact your bite, your gum tissue health, the ability to properly care for your teeth and, yes folks, even your appearance. Dr. Whitlock and our […]
