Orthodontic Treatment in Rancho in Cucamonga Area

A smile says a lot about a person, and few things can promote a greater sense of self-confidence in your appearance than a beautiful, straight smile. Properly aligned teeth have oral health benefits beyond just your appearance, too! That’s why at Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, we offer orthodontic treatment options for not only children, but also adults. Patients love our friendly, comfortable environment and our personalized approach to care, and we make having healthy smiles fun for the whole family!

Orthodontic treatment for all ages

At Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry, we provide orthodontic solutions for all ages – from the young to the young at heart! Children and adults alike can benefit from orthodontic care, but the appropriate treatments and orthodontic care goals for a child are different from those for an adult. At Sweet Tooth, we understand these differences and tailor our services to each patient’s age, stage, treatment goals, and preferences.

Children’s orthodontic care

Monitoring your child’s teeth and jaw development as they grow is an important part of their oral health. Straight teeth not only look great and promote a child’s self-esteem, but also help keep your child’s smile healthy. When your child’s teeth are crooked, it can lead to issues such as:

  • The inability to properly clean them at home with flossing and brushing, which can lead to cavities and gum disease
  • A bite that is off, which can cause issues such as headaches, migraines, and TMJ problems
  • Uneven wear on the teeth, which can lead to chips or fractures
  • Breathing issues while your child sleeps due to the placement of your child’s oral structures

At Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry, our orthodontic team provides a highly customized approach to your child’s treatment plan. Based on a thorough evaluation and consultation, we may recommend one or more of the following types of orthodontic treatments:

  • Braces
  • An expander
  • Retainers
  • Space maintainers to keep enough space for adult teeth to grow in if baby teeth fall out too early
  • Extractions of baby teeth to promote healthy growth and placement of adult teeth
  • Home exercises to promote healthy oral development and habits

Orthodontic options for adults

Adults often prefer a more discreet teeth straightening option, such as:

  • Clear brackets with tooth-colored wires that work like traditional braces but are less noticeable to others
  • Clear aligners that are placed over the teeth for a nearly invisible teeth straightening option; the aligners are worn every day for at least 20 hours a day, but are completely removable for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene purposes

In addition, as adults age, their bite may become misaligned and cause a variety of problems that are not just isolated to the mouth—from headaches, neck and ear pain, and other aches and pains to clicking and grinding in your jaw and uneven wear and tear on your teeth, a misaligned bite can wreak havoc on your body. Orthodontic treatments can help resolve these issues for a more comfortable bite and a healthier smile.
