Everyone wants a beautiful smile and good health. There is a connection. Our approach at Serenity Dental Studio is not just to straighten teeth, but to look at faces and address the causes of the underlying crooked teeth and linked health issues such as asthma, allergies, sleeping problems and ADHD. As a result, we can create both brighter smiles and healthier kids. It works for adults, too.
Our family dentistry practice is proud to offer the Myobrace System and Orthotropic Appliances to our patients.
We recommend facial growth and orthodontic evaluation as early as three to five years old, and definitely by the age of 12. We excel at early, interceptive orthodontic treatment which not only straightens crooked teeth, but also addresses and improves the skeletal and dental problems by correcting the underlying causes: improper breathing and swallowing. By treating children in this way, when they are actively growing, we can help kids grow to their full genetic potential.
When is Early Treatment Better?
Several conditions are much easier to treat if done at an early age. Crossbite –when the upper front teeth are close inside the lower front teeth, is one of them. Another problem is severe crowding when the jaws are too small for the adult teeth. Protruding teeth, which are at risk of fracture, and an underbite caused by a relatively large lower jaw, are other examples of conditions best treated at an early age.
While the approach works best in growing children, the principals and techniques are also used successfully in adults, too. Not only do we see better teeth, but also often impressive improvement of the face. TMJ pain and headaches sometimes also resolve.
