Orthodontics for kids and adults in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

You don’t have to be a dental patient at Sweet Tooth Children’s Dentistry to take advantage of our services in orthodontics . . . or be a child!Our team in Rancho Cucamonga, CA is passionate about giving people of all ages the straighter smiles they want. We have techniques to help kids grow into beautifully aligned teeth, and various types of braces to fit the needs and lifestyles of grownups, too.

Why consider orthodontic treatment?

Crooked teeth have a negative effect on appearance. In kids, that can lead to taunts or bullying. In teens and adults, reluctance to smile may be perceived as shyness or aloofness. Orthodontics can be a real confidence booster.

Straight teeth have fewer crevices to trap food particles that invite decay and gum disease. It is easier to keep uniformly aligned teeth clean with normal brushing and flossing. Crooked teeth may be at higher risk of unusual wear, chips, and fractures. Misalignment throws the bite out of balance, potentially triggering TMJ problems, headaches, and migraines.

Childhood oral development also plays a big role in respiration and sleep. Early orthodontic intervention can help to avoid sleep apnea and other breathing problems throughout life.

Options in kid’s orthodontics in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Straight smiles for kids start with early assessment by one of our experienced dentists. Some issues with oral development can be addressed with:

  • An expander
  • Retainer
  • Braces
  • Early removal of baby teeth
  • Oral exercises done at home
  • Careful monitoring (in some cases, the child will outgrow the problem naturally)

Missing baby teeth can be a problem if they come out too soon. A little device called a space maintainer keeps adjacent teeth from shifting, holding the spot open for the adult tooth to emerge.

Solutions for teeth misalignment in adults

We offer traditional metal brackets and also clear brackets with discrete wires, so treatment is not obvious. In addition to those choices, teens and adults may be candidates for “invisible” braces. These smooth plastic aligners are transparent for comfortable and virtually unnoticeable straightening. Aligners are removable for normal eating and oral hygiene, but they must be worn conscientiously, at least 20 hours daily.
