The Importance of Orthodontics
Having straight teeth isn’t just about having a pretty smile. Crooked and misaligned teeth actually affect your oral health by raising your risk of additional dental problems and bite disorders. When you receive treatment to straighten your teeth, you significantly lower your chance of getting dental cavities, gum disease and TMJ disorders.
Orthodontic Treatment for Children
Dr. Patel-Parekh follows the recommendations of the American Association of Orthodontists and suggests that children receive an orthodontic screening by the age of seven. At this age, permanent molars are emerging and beginning to impact the bite. During this appointment, we can determine if your child has any developing dental problems that can be corrected with early orthodontic treatment. There are many benefits to screening your child early including:
- Help break bad habits such as thumb sucking
- Teeth that have not erupted yet can be looked at
- Early treatment can save you money in the future
- Give your child more confidence
- Lay the foundation for a lifelong beautiful smile
- If needed, we can guide the jaw growth
Orthodontic Treatments for Adults
While most orthodontic patients are children and teens, we also treat adult patients. Many times, people ignore their misaligned or crooked teeth until adulthood because they were not made aware of the consequences. Failing to receive orthodontic treatment when needed will cause the problem to get worse over time. The stigma of adults having orthodontic treatments done has faded drastically over the years. Dr. Patel-Parekh has helped many adults feel better about their appearance and smile by using orthodontic care! With the advances in dental technology, our adult patients from Hopewell Township, NJ can choose to straighten their teeth with many discreet treatment options.
