An orthodontic evaluation allows Dr. Diana Naffah to assess your child’s oral development. During the evaluation, Dr. Naffah will inspect your child’s teeth and gums, as well as the bones and muscles in your child’s mouth to evaluate the need for correction with the help of braces.
An orthodontic evaluation will give you the ability to plan ahead for your child’s future dental needs, including clear, porcelain or metal braces. Dr. Naffah has significant experience evaluating children's growth and oral development and frequently implements interceptive orthodontic treatment plans for our youngest patients.
Metal braces are still the most common type of braces for orthodontic patients. Modern metal braces are much more comfortable than ones worn in the past, as they’re flatter and smaller. Dr. Naffah may recommend braces if you suffer from crooked teeth, crowded teeth, jaw problems or a misaligned bite.
Invisalign Clear Braces For Teens and Adults
Aligning your teeth makes them easier to clean, but it also has a huge impact on your appearance. As an Invisalign provider, Dr. Naffah can help you straighten your teeth without having to refer you out to an orthodontist for traditional brackets and wires.
Clear, removable Invisalign braces make it easier for you to keep your smile clean and avoid problems like tooth decay and gum disease. The advanced system uses removable plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear. No one will ever have to know they’re there!
Porcelain braces are a common alternative to traditional metal braces. Like traditional braces, they are used by Dr. Naffah to help realign and straighten teeth. These types of braces have brackets made of porcelain instead of metal that usually blend in with your teeth better than metal braces.
Phase I and Phase II Orthodontic Treatments
If Dr. Naffah performs your child’s orthodontic evaluation and concludes that treatment is necessary, we will complete it in a two-phase approach. Phase I is usually between the ages of 6 and 10, while they still have most of their primary teeth.
Dr. Naffah may recommend expansion, an active retainer or partial braces as part of the Phase I treatment. The goal of Phase I is to better prepare your child’s jaws to make room for their permanent teeth and improve the relationship between their upper and lower jaws.
Phase II occurs dependant on your child’s growth. The goal of this phase is to make sure each tooth is located in the best location possible to function properly. Phase II usually involves full upper and lower braces for your child and will not begin until all of your child’s permanent teeth have erupted. Phase II treatment usually lasts for a minimum of 24 months depending on the individual needs of your child.
Your child might need a space maintainer if they lose a tooth early or have a baby tooth extracted. If your child needs a space maintainer, Dental Wellness Team will custom make it to fit your child’s mouth. Its purpose is to keep the space where the baby tooth was lost open in order to allow the permanent tooth to come into place.
Baby teeth are vital to the healthy development of adult teeth, jawbones, muscles. Often, if a space maintainer is not used, your child’s other teeth can shift into the open space and future, more invasive orthodontic treatment might be needed.
Post Orthodontic Treatment
Caring for your smile after orthodontic treatment is a vital part of making sure your teeth don’t move after your orthodontic treatment. This is a critical follow-up stage that usually involves wearing a retainer. At Dental Wellness Group we offer several different types, all of which are custom-made to fit your smile.
