Benefits of Orthodontics

  

For those patients who have clear indications for early orthodontic intervention, early treatment presents an opportunity to:

  • guide the growth of the jaw
  • regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches (the arch-shaped jaw bone that supports the teeth)
  • guide incoming permanent teeth into desirable positions
  • lower risk of trauma (accidents) to protruded upper incisors (front teeth)
  • correct harmful oral habits such as thumb- or finger-sucking
  • reduce or eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems
  • improve personal appearance and self-esteem
  • potentially simplify and/or shorten treatment time for later corrective orthodontics
  • reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth (teeth that should have come in, but have not)
  • preserve or gain space for permanent teeth that are coming in
