Orthodontics for Children
It is important to start with a healthy bite in childhood. That’s why we keep an eye on how your child’s mouth is developing. Our dentists are trained to spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth, even while some baby teeth are present.
You see, earlier discovery means earlier treatment, making it possible to treat malocclusion, the misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the two dental arches when they approach each other as the jaws close, before bones have stopped growing. And that means easier treatment and better, longer-lasting result. Our traditional stainless steel braces are the best choice for youngsters.
For kids who have clear indicators that they need orthodontic intervention, early treatment lets us:
● Guide jaw growth
● Minimize the risk of damage to front teeth
● Correct harmful oral habits
● Improve appearance and self-esteem
● Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
● Improve the way lips meet
● Correct speech impediments
If your child sucks her thumb, or if he has not had an orthodontic evaluation, don’t wait! Call us to schedule a consultation today!
So you never heard of early orthodontics and now your teenager needs braces. Don’t feel bad! We can treat teens too! We offer both traditional orthodontics and teen Invisalign, the clear way to straighten teeth. And don’t forget: Straight teeth help teens feel more confident, smile more, and even have better oral hygiene!
You’re all grown up, but you still dream of having a straighter smile. You guessed it! Jackson Dental can help you too. We offer adult orthodontics for TMJ disorder (TMD) treatment, bite alignment, and, yes, cosmetic purposes.
For professionals who wouldn’t dream of being seen with wires on their teeth, we offer Invisalign clear aligners. These wonderfully invisible aligners are elegantly transparent: no one but you knows they are there. But just because they are clear doesn’t mean they don’t work amazingly well. Invisalign is designed to gently and effectively correct flaws in the alignment of your smile, restoring it to its most comfortable and beautiful position. Invisalign is so discreet, it is like wearing contact lenses for your teeth.
To top it all off, Invisalign doesn’t require any lifestyle adjustments. Just eat, brush, floss, as usual. You can even remove your aligners for a special occasion!
