Orthodontics for Children
Orthodontic treatment was originally performed for young or growing patients to make cosmetic and functional improvements in the maxillo-mandibular dental system and to normalize the child’s development. Early orthodontics can enhance your child's smile, but the benefits far surpass appearance. Pediatric orthodontics can straighten crooked teeth, guide erupting teeth into position, correct bite problems, even prevent the need for tooth extractions. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. To know more about the benefits of early orthodontic treatment, contact BRACE Dental Clinic.
Orthodontics for Adults
Adult orthodontics is concerned with striking a balance between achieving optimal proximal and occlusal contact of the teeth, acceptable dentofacial esthetics, normal function, and reasonable stability. Orthodontic treatment is sometimes a little bit difficult than a child since for one growth is already absent and would oftentimes require combined attention of other specialties because of factors such as missing teeth, periodontal condition, extensive damage to the teeth, etc. These symptoms would normally make orthodontic treatment for adults a little bit more complicated. Without growth and with some of the symptomatology that occurs, requiring other specialists, orthodontic treatment of adults can be very much more complex than treatment of the child.
