The alignment of the jaw, bite and teeth are important for your oral health and smile appearance. Misalignment or malocclusions can cause a host of problems for your teeth and gums, including crooked or gapped teeth that are difficult to clean and affect the appearance of your smile. Orthodontics is a dental specialty that addresses malocclusions, straightening teeth and aligning the jaw or bite. At Restore Dental, we offer orthodontic solutions, both preventive and treatments, for kids, teens and adults at our clinic in Highlands Ranch, CO.
Tooth and bite misalignment can be affected by genetics and other factors. Most malocclusions begin in childhood during tooth formation in both the baby and permanent teeth. The conventional treatment for malocclusions is orthodontic treatment during adolescence or the teens years with braces or clear aligners. Adults with crooked teeth can also benefit from orthodontic treatment to improve the health and appearance of their smile. At Restore Dental, we offer orthodontics for misaligned teeth in teens and adults, but we also offer a preventive orthodontic treatment called the HealthyStart® System.
The HealthyStart® System is a treatment for children who have misaligned teeth or a bite that is affecting their oral health. This is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can gently improve oral alignment that can impact the teeth and airway. Using customized oral appliances at an early age can prevent the need for braces and improve childhood sleep disorder breathing issues (snoring, sleep apnea).
Treatments for Misaligned Teeth
It is our goal at Restore Dental to help patients of all ages have the healthiest smile possible. Preventive treatments like the HealthyStart® System can put kids on the right path to a healthy smile, but teens and adults need a corrective solution for misaligned teeth.
A straight smile is important for appearance and oral health. Make sure everyone in your family can enjoy the benefit of a healthy smile with orthodontic preventive and corrective treatments at Restore Dental. Contact our office in Highlands Ranch to schedule an orthodontic consultation.
