Orthodontics: Not Just For Appearances
Orthodontics at Alameda Pediatric DentistryWe all want to look our best and many orthodontic treatments can help individuals reach that important goal. Even more important is helping our patients achieve a healthy, well-functioning, stable bite.

Catching conditions as early as possible increases the likelihood that the teeth, jaw, and broader oral structure will develop normally. That's one of the reasons we encourage parents to schedule a visit with us by the time their child reaches the age of seven.

Every mouth is different and has its own issues specific to the individual. For children, the most common problems are related to poor tooth alignment. This can be caused by overcrowding; some children's mouths are simply smaller than the teeth they are trying to accommodate.

Protrusion of the upper front teeth, known as "buck teeth," is caused when the lower jaw is shorter than the upper jaw. This condition has many causes: tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, genetics, and other complications. When the lower front teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth, the condition is known as an underbite.

There are additional bite issues as well as spacing issues that cause gaps and dental shifting. All of these can have broader health effects for children as well as challenges for developing self-esteem and overall confidence.

Give us a call if you've got questions or concerns. We have a full array of therapies, procedures, and treatments to help each child toward a beautiful smile.
