Orthodontics typically involves treating both the upper and lower dental arches. The ultimate goals and focus of these treatments is to help ensure that your teeth are aligned, your lower and upper jaws function as they should, and that your bite fits together comfortably and correctly. To achieve these goals, orthodontics can involve a variety of treatments, including:
- Space Maintainers
Most orthodontic treatments begin while patients are young, typically before receiving their permanent teeth. By starting treatment early on, our dentist can more easily bring teeth and jaw alignment in to their proper positions. Our dentist will evaluate and monitor your child’s growth and development, noticing when patterns may lead to future problems. Based on your child’s growth, they will receive proper treatment to prevent issues such as overbites, crossbites, or gapped bites. Once you child has grown more and their jaws are more set in place, they may be treated with braces to straighten their permanent teeth.
Orthodontics has several different treatment options, but our dentist will work with you and your child to determine which treatment best fits their circumstances and lifestyle. For more information, we invite you to call or visit our office today.
