Pre-Braces Appliances

There are problems that need to be corrected before braces to allow your smile and jaws to be in the healthiest position. Correcting these problems early actually shortens time in braces and reduces the need for extractions or jaw surgery.

Interceptive treatment around the age of 7 allows us to correct some of the following.

Removable expansion appliance

  • Guides the growth of growing jaw bones to create more space for emerging teeth
  • Guides incoming teeth into optimal positions
  • Regulates the width of the jaws

 

Quad helix

 

  • Creates more space for erupting permanent teeth
  • Corrects harmful oral habits
  • Reduces the likelihood of teeth becoming stuck or impacted under the gums due to overcrowding

 

Lower lingual arch

 

  • Creates space for permanent teeth
  • Moves individual teeth into better position

 

Twin block appliance

 

  • Stimulates growth and brings the low­er jaw into the correct relationship to the upper jaw, which helps reduce the overbite
  • We can simultaneously use expansion screws to widen the jaw to create more room for the permanent teeth
