Preventative Orthodontics in Rancho Cucamonga

Preventative Orthodontics

Preventative orthodontics can mean a shorter, easier treatment later in life and can even prevent some dental problems from developing.

Common preventative treatments include:
Guided Eruption
Crowding may be prevented or reduced if treatment begins while the permanent front teeth are erupting around six years of age. This can be done by creating more space for the teeth and allowing natural alignment to occur.

Early Extraction
When a primary tooth does not fall out when it supposed to, permanent teeth can grow in the wrong location. It may be necessary to extract the primary tooth to allow the proper eruption and spacing location of the permanent tooth.

Dental Headgear
Headgear is a preventive option used is to correct the way the molars fit with each other. It can also be used to create additional space for permanent teeth alignment. Headgear is primarily worn in the home and at night during sleep.
