Allentown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2015 -- Many children require orthodontic dentistry to correct misaligned teeth. To ensure that orthodontic issues are treated early for the best results, Suburban Dental Associates in Allentown offers orthodontic braces for children this spring.
Suburban Dental Associates is a comprehensive dental treatment center offering a wide range of dental care services, including orthodontics. Orthodontics can treat and prevent malocclusions (bad bites) and other dental issues such as overcrowding, overbites and underbites. These issues frequently result from genetic or development irregularities, but can be easily corrected with braces.
According to American Dental Association guidelines, children should first visit the dentist at age seven, or earlier if the child has noticeable facial or oral abnormalities. If a child has issues such as misaligned teeth, braces may be appropriate. Braces work especially quickly for children and teenagers because their teeth and jaws are still developing. The dentists at Suburban Dental Associates can determine whether a child may need braces during a routine dental exam.
Before fitting a set of braces, a dentist at Suburban Dental Associates will first perform visual examination as well as generate x-ray images, bite impressions and computer models. This extensive planning ensures a comfortable fit for the braces and faster achievement of the desired corrective or preventative results. Commonly, children who need corrective orthodontics will receive a set of fixed braces made of brackets and wire that realign the teeth. These braces can be made of clear material to make them less noticeable.
Before, during and after the procedure, at Suburban Dental Associates make sure children are comfortable and that their nervousness about getting braces is assuaged. They will provide recommendations for how parents and children can best take care of the braces while they are in place, and will perform regular adjustments until the braces have satisfactorily corrected the issue.
