Great tooth alignment is a key factor in a beautiful smile, but tooth positioning also plays a vital role in proper tooth wear, preventing gum disease, and avoiding tooth decay. Teeth that are crowded or misaligned will wear down prematurely and are much more likely to develop cavities and have areas of periodontal disease in the gum tissue around them. By correcting the alignment of the teeth, your mouth will function properly for many more years, and you will gain the self-confidence to smile more frequently around those in your daily life.
As your child is growing, interceptive orthodontics help ensure proper oral development, tooth eruption patterns, and growth modification as needed. These techniques encourage correct, natural tooth alignment as their jaws and teeth are still growing. One of the most common types of techniques used is palatal expansion, which creates more room in the mouth for teeth to erupt fully into place without the guidance of braces.
