Ortho Screenings

A variety of tooth and jaw issues can be resolved through orthodontics. The dentist may point out that your child’s baby teeth appear crowded or the relationship between the upper and lower teeth isn’t ideal. While treatment doesn’t usually start this young, it may help you prepare for the possibility of future corrective care. As permanent teeth start to appear, usually around age 6, the doctor will monitor the situation and help you decide if early orthodontic treatment is right for your child.

Although many orthodontic wearers are teenagers, braces play a role in some children’s earlier years. Since permanent teeth are typically larger than baby teeth, a device called a palatal expander may be used to create more room. This allows adult teeth to move into place correctly, helping avoid more extensive treatment later on.

A narrow jaw or a large overbite may create a similar dilemma. Gently guiding your child’s jaw growth while they are still growing can make a tremendous difference down the road. Once growth stops during the teen years, sometimes the only corrective measure involves surgery which is always a scenario to avoid when possible.

The Usual Track

Many youngsters benefit from orthodontics after their baby teeth have fallen out and the permanent teeth have grown in. The length of treatment time can vary, but often falls around two years.

Orthodontic treatment can solve almost every bite issue, but success relies on good patient compliance. Wearing elastic bands consistently, keeping follow-up appointments, and practicing outstanding home care can all lead to a beautiful smile. This commitment involves frequent preventive visits with our hygienist as well. This helps avoid permanent staining from weakened enamel and cavities around brackets. Inland Choice Dental specializes in helping our orthodontic patients enjoy a successful outcome: a gorgeous, healthy smile.

Great & friendly staff that really pampers you. They treat you like a guest rather than like a transaction. What really sets them apart: technology (updated tools, giant screen for visuals, etc), check-in process, transparent doctors that clue you in about your dental health & procedures (11/10), the experience, and they have an air purifier everywhere!!!! I mean... not even my PCP has them. Wish we would've found them sooner!

I have not been to the dentist in a very long time and I was nervous to finally get a check up. I looked at the local business and this one caught my eye because of the great reviews. I scheduled a Sat appointment. I was able to sign in using a link and was seen right away. The staff was very nice and answered all my questions. I expressed to them I was nervous but they assured me there was nothing to worry about. My check up was quick and when it came down to understanding the charges for the procedures I had to undergo, the staff was very thorough and answered all my questions. I 100% would recommend this place. Dr. Andrews was very nice and I feel comfortable returning for my follow up visits and procedures.

Such a clean place! The parking is great! Brought in my oldest sister because she was in so much pain from her tooth. The staff was really friendly and compassionate. I had just got out a 12 hour shift from the hospital and the staff had coffee creamer and all coffee supplies readily available for their customers. I cannot wait to see if my insurance covers me so I can be a patient here as well! The staff here is amazing and the place seems very eager to give the best service to its patients.
