Depending on you or your child’s individual situation, Dr. Cirocco may recommend treatment with traditional bracket and wire braces and removable appliances.
In children, it is sometimes necessary to begin orthodontic treatment before the jaw and gums fully form; for this reason, Dr. Cirocco recommends that you bring your child in for an orthodontic consultation by age seven. This way, we can proactively treat potential problems from habits such as thumb sucking and mouth breathing, or genetic issues like anterior and posterior crowding, and an underbite or overbite. Dr. Cirocco’s approach enables him to nip teeth alignment issues before they escalate, gently expanding and reshaping a young person’s smile. When all the permanent teeth emerge during adolescence, some children may need a second treatment phase, which can include comprehensive orthodontics and an appliance, like a retainer, to maintain teeth position.
Today more adults than ever wear braces; one in five orthodontic patients is an adult*; but not exclusively for cosmetic reasons. The savvy consumer knows that you’re never too old to enjoy the health benefits of a straight smile. For instance, symptoms like earaches, dizziness, headaches, and neck pain can all be associated with a misaligned jaw. Correcting the bite will alleviate these symptoms and improve function and comfort, while reducing the potential for tooth wear. In addition, straight teeth are less prone to decay and gum disease.
