Early orthodontics treatment benefits Redlands area patients

A beautiful smile can really help increase self-esteem. In fact, most Americans believe that having an attractive smile is an important asset both socially and professionally. In addition to improving looks and confidence, a straight smile can lead to a healthier mouth. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to clean properly. Issues with the bite can lead to problems chewing, an increased risk of dental trauma or uneven wear on the teeth, and may even lead to speech impediments. Patients with bad bites are at risk for the jaw pain and dysfunction associated with TMD.

Orthodontic treatment can usually be done for patients of nearly any age, although more and more dentists are teaching patients about the importance of early intervention. Early orthodontics treatment can help correct any problems associated with improper tooth alignment and jaw development. Additionally, early treatment can help cut down on overall expenses and the amount of time required for treatment.

At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, we believe it is important to be evaluated for orthodontic treatment by the age of seven. At seven, most children have their first molars and an established back bite. It’s at this age that we can begin to monitor the relationships between the teeth. Even if intervention is not needed, early evaluation allows us to keep an eye on development and discover any issues as they arise.

Some of the biggest advantages of early orthodontic treatment include:

  • The emergence of facial symmetry through properly guided jaw development
  • Preservation of space for teeth that have yet to emerge
  • Reduction in treatment time for braces

For patients who did not receive early orthodontic intervention, treatment is still possible and can be very successful at correcting issues with bite and alignment. In addition, adult orthodontic treatment can improve appearance and confidence. At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, we offer patients in Redlands, and surrounding areas, many options for both early and adult orthodontic treatment.
