Early Treatment | Adult Treatment | Retention
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child receive their first orthodontic screening by age seven. Early treatment allows us to see potential problems and correct them before they become more serious, promoting your child’s oral health and saving time and money down the road.
We can determine as the permanent teeth come in whether they are developing normally, and if there are any problems during this development we need to address. These problems could include crowding, open bite, overbite or gummy smiles. Then we would create a personalized treatment plan for your child to prevent these problems.
We can use removable or fixed appliances to provide more room for crowded, erupting teeth, preserve space for teeth coming in, and improve facial symmetry by manipulating jaw growth. We can also reduce the need for tooth extraction and reduce the time it is necessary to wear braces.
It’s not only children who need braces. The use of braces to improve tooth alignment can be done at any age if you have healthy gums and bone structure.
Orthodontic treatment can improve your personal appearance, and improve the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth or a bad bite are correctable, and without treatment can lead to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches and jaw joint pain.
At Dynamic Dental Group, we use the latest techniques and appliances to lessen your discomfort, shorten treatment time and reduce the number of visits necessary to complete your treatment. Options we can offer you include metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners worn at night to correct mild cases of misaligned teeth.
We will outline for you your treatment options, recommend the best treatment for you, explain how the procedure will be done and how long the treatments will last, and give you the approximate cost.
It’s never too late to improve your smile.
We are now a Preferred Provider for Clarity Braces, an option to straighten your teeth without the need for traditional orthodontics. Clarity Braces uses clear brackets and white wires that are barely visible.
Another option is Invisalign. Invisalign uses custom-fitted clear trays you wear over your teeth to gradually realign your teeth. You change the tray every two weeks as your teeth are straightened until your treatment is complete.
After we remove your braces, the retention stage of your treatment begins. This lasts a minimum of 24 months. Using a retainer is vital to make the changes in your teeth and bite permanent. You should remove your retainer before each tooth brushing, and brush your retainer before putting it back.
