Early Treatment

When is the best time to begin orthodontics?

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment.

What are the benefits of early orthodontic evaluation?

Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Prudent intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.

Why is age 7 considered the optimal time for screening?

By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing the back bite. During this time, an orthodontist can evaluate front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships. For example, the presence of erupting incisors can indicate possible overbite, open bite, crowding or gummy smiles. Timely screening increases the chances for an incredible smile.

What are the advantages of interceptive treatment?

Some of the most direct results of interceptive treatment are:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Creating facial symmetry through influencing jaw growth
  • Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Preserving space for unerupted teeth
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal
  • Reducing treatment time with braces

Are you a candidate for orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; orthodontic treatment improves bad bites (malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile.

Why should malocclusions be treated?

According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusions can result in a variety of problems. Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Crossbites can result in unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear. Openbites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments.

Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smile – it creates a healthier you.

Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place, and crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide to seek orthodontic treatment.

This is also a good time for orthodontic treatment because many negative associations of braces are not present. Many children in this age range undergo orthodontic treatment, and children are very often able to be convinced to wear braces because they see their friends wearing them, too, and want to fit in.

Besides the benefits of fitting in with their friends, children at this age are growing rapidly, and orthodontists can usually take advantage of these growth spurts to help shape the bite and teeth correctly. And children at this age have high metabolisms, which can help shorten overall treatment time and reduce the discomfort of orthodontic treatment.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign®

The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.

Damon® Brackets

Damon® braces were invented by Dr. Dwight Damon. The Damon® bracket utilizes (sliding-door) technology known as “self-ligation” that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket.

No elastic or steel ties are used with Damon® brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, Damon® braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.

Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

  • Invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
  • Series of clear, removable, custom-made Aligners.
  • Uses no metal wires or brackets.
  • Custom-made for comfort.

How does Invisalign Work?

  • Wear each set of Aligners for about two weeks.
  • Remove only to eat, drink, brush and floss.
  • Your teeth will move gradually each week.
  • Visit us every 6-8 weeks.
  • Total treatment time averages 6-15 months.
  • Average number of Aligners is between 18 and 30.

If you want to learn more about Invisalign and how it works, please visit the Invisalign Homepage.

invisalign-teen
Invisalign Teen’s™ clear aligners are virtually invisible. You can always feel confident showing your smile, even while you’re wearing your aligners to straighten your teeth. No need to feel self conscious about attending prom, taking school photos, or any other day-to-day activity. Invisalign Teen aligners are custom built for you, it generally works without anyone else knowing you are in treatment.

Since the Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, you may take them out as needed as long as you are wearing them the prescribed number of hours each day. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about your aligners preventing you from playing sports or an instrument. As an added bonus, you can remove the aligners and eat whatever foods you want and you can brush and floss with ease.

The Invisalign Teen aligners are made from a lightweight plastic material and fit precisely in your mouth. Although you may occasionally experience slight discomfort wearing the product, you won’t have to worry about the constant irritation and inconvenience of metal and brackets.

The Damon® System is a new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders. It uses passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties” and the high technology wires that move teeth faster require fewer adjustments.

With the Damon System, treatment time is typically shorter than with conventional braces. And shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile..faster. You may be surprised at how fast.

Damon Braces VideoClick picture to view video

With the Damon System we can treat most cases without extractions. No one likes to have teeth removed, and a smile with a full display of teeth often produces a broader, natural smile and a nicer profile.

The days of having braces tightened are over. Damon System braces have a unique slide mechanism that reduces pressure on your teeth and allows them to move more comfortably to their correct positions. This revolutionary new approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment.

Retainer Care Instructions

Congratulations! You did it – you finally got your braces off. Enjoy your new Smile.

Here are a few instructions that you will need to take care of your retainers. Everyone that has their braces removed will receive retainers. There are different kinds of retainers. Please find the one that you have on the list below and read over the instructions so you will know how to take care of your retainer. If your retainer is removable, you were given a box to keep it in whenever you are not wearing it, use this box so your retainer doesn’t end up in a trash can. If you have a dog in your house, keep your retainer out of FIDO’S reach – dogs love retainers!

Upper Retainers

medical bracesThere are two kinds of upper retainers. The traditional retainer that has colored acrylic in the roof of your mouth and a wire in front of your teeth is called a Hawley retainer. This retainer is to be worn all day and all night. Take it out only to eat and brush your teeth and then put it back in. To clean this retainer you will need to brush it when you brush your teeth. Just like your teeth, your retainer may start to have a tartar buildup. You may want to soak your retainer in a denture cleaner, like Efferdent, to minimize the buildup. Since there is a metal wire on this retainer you’ll want to remove the retainer when the fizz stops, brush it good, rinse and then it is safe to place back in your mouth. (This is recommended only once a week).

The other type of upper retainer is called an ESSIX. This is a clear tray that looks like an Invisalign tray. This retainer is worn every night, unless otherwise instructed by Dr. David. To clean your retainer, take it out of your mouth, brush it inside and outside with your toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse it. If you notice a tartar buildup starting, you may clean it by using a denture cleaner, like Efferdent. Follow the instructions on the box, but remove the retainer when the fizz stops. You don’t want to ‘soak’ this retainer. Soaking it for long periods of time may cause your retainer to become brittle and break. It is not recommended to do this more than once a month.

Lower Retainers

lower retainerYour lower retainer is glued to your front 6 teeth. This retainer is permanent and will be left in for several years. The longer you leave it in, the longer your teeth will remain straight. Dr. David has had his for over 30 years. To clean this retainer, you simply brush it well. Use floss to get behind your retainer and in between teeth. If your lower retainer should come out, bring it with you to your appointment so we can glue it back in.

If you still have baby teeth, we are using a retainer that is glued to your 6 year molars and has a wire that fits behind your teeth. This retainer is used to maintain the space created by losing your baby teeth. The baby teeth in the back of your mouth are larger than the permanent teeth that will eventually take their place. We don’t want to lose that space so we place a retainer to keep that space open while your permanent teeth work their way into place. While we are waiting for your permanent teeth to come in, Dr. David will want to see you every 6-12 months to keep up with your progress.

If you have a lower retainer that is made of acrylic, with a wire in front of the teeth, this retainer is removable but should only be removed to eat and brush. Keep this retainer clean by brushing it each time you brush your teeth.

If your lower retainer is a clear plastic tray – you will only need to wear it at night, EVERY night. Keep it clean by brushing it inside and outside with your toothbrush and toothpaste.

Using Retainers to Move Teeth

clear_retainerOccasionally, Dr. David will use one of the clear plastic trays to move one or more teeth. If this is the case, you will be given special instructions to wear this tray all day and all night, take it out only to eat and brush. He may want to see you every few weeks to check progress and to make more adjustments if necessary.

* * * * It is Extremely Important * * * *

Now that your braces are off, the work is not complete. It is just as important to KEEP your teeth straight. You must keep your retainer checkup appointments and bring your retainers with you. If a tooth starts to move it is much easier to correct a small movement. If your teeth move too much, it could be necessary to go back into braces to correct the movement.

As always, if you have any questions, or think your teeth may be moving, don’t hesitate to call us and let Dr. David check you.

SO, enjoy your new smile. We have enjoyed getting to know you and your family. Even though we will only be seeing you a couple of times a year…
SMILE when you think of us!

Corrective Jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Often, these abnormalities cause difficulty associated with chewing, talking, sleeping and other routine activities. Orthognathic surgery corrects these problems and, in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, will improve the overall appearance of the facial profile.

Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery. State-of-the-art materials such as titanium plates and miniature screws provide stability, strength and predictability to your treatment. These advances in technology, procedures and equipment reduce post-surgical recovery time, thus allowing patients to return to their normal routines soon after the surgery.

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment can correct the problem. With the latest advances in orthodontics, this is sometimes the case. We will determine if orthognathic surgery is the correct treatment option for you.
