Ortho Screenings In Cincinnati, OH

Orthodontics can effectively resolve various tooth and jaw problems. Dr. Manju Kejriwal may notice that your child's baby teeth are crowded or that there is improper alignment between their upper and lower teeth. Although treatment typically does not start at such a young age, it can help you prepare for potential future corrective dental care. When permanent teeth begin to emerge, usually around the age of 6, our dentist in Cincinnati will monitor the situation and inform you if early orthodontic treatment is suitable for your child.

Braces are not only for teenagers, as they can also be beneficial for younger children. In order to accommodate the larger permanent teeth, a palatal expander may be used to create more space. This allows the adult teeth to properly shift into their desired position, preventing the need for more extensive treatment in the future.

A large overbite or narrow jaw can also cause confusion. However, by guiding the growth of your child's jaw while they are still growing, significant improvements can be made. It is important to address these issues early on, as surgery may be the only option once growth stops during the teenage years, which should be avoided if possible.

The Usual Track

Many children benefit from orthodontic treatment once their baby teeth have fallen out and permanent teeth have come in. The length of the treatment can vary, but it typically lasts around two years.

Orthodontic treatment can effectively address almost any bite problem, but its success relies on the patient's commitment. Consistently wearing elastic bands, attending follow-up appointments, and practicing proper oral care can all lead to a fantastic smile. This dedication includes regular visits to our hygienist and dentist in Cincinnati to prevent permanent staining from cavities and weakened enamel around braces. At MK Dental Excellence – Dentist Cincinnati, we specialize in helping our orthodontic patients achieve a successful outcome: a beautiful, healthy, and confident smile.
