Orthodontics is about more than just giving you or your child a beautiful smile. It also helps you have a healthy mouth and jaw!
When a child come in to Progressive Dental for an Orthodontics assessment (we suggest around age 7 for the first one), we are able to tell what procedures we can use to help your child with his or her specific needs. Whether it’s straightening teeth, correcting a crossbite, or widening the jaw or palate, we make sure to take all the steps necessary to maintain the healthy configuration of their teeth and jaws. These procedures, including the use of braces, palate expanders, or other hardware, can help them avoid several issues later in life, including TMJ, speech impediments, tooth extractions, etc.
For adults, our orthodontics can help fix all sorts of issues, ranging from crooked or overcrowded teeth to TMJ (jaw pain, tension, etc.) to dangerous sleep apnea (and the snoring that goes along with it!). Since we use the latest technologies and make all of our pieces in our in-house lab, we’re able to fit you with exactly the type of orthodontics you need, without unnecessary attention. From clear braces to night guards, we can make your orthodontics fit your lifestyle.
If you are being seen in our office for all your dental needs rest assured, our experienced dentists are examining each patient and diagnosing all dental and orthodontic problems. We are able to treat both right here in our offices.
