Correction methods might include Invisalign or wire braces, retainers to realign the teeth and guide incoming teeth, or other special devices like bite planes and night guards to help with teeth grinding and TMJ.
Here at the Creek View Dental Group, our Orthodontic specialists will evaluate your teeth and bite and make a recommendation as to which treatment option will be right for you. Treatment time typically ranges from one to three years, depending on the growth of the patient's mouth and face and the severity of the problem.
Teeth can be moved at any age which makes orthodontic procedures beneficial for children and adults alike. However, crooked teeth or bite problems are more easily corrected earlier rather than later, so we recommend that children around the age of 7-10 be examined by an orthodontist to determine whether treatment may be needed.
We look forward to hearing from you! To find out more about our dentists, Orthodontics and TMJ services, or the other dentistry services we provide, please call our Aptos, Santa Cruz dental office at 831.688.6531 or send an email to Info@CreekViewDentistry.com.
