Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

Common Orthodontic issues can be crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites for children are often inherited or a result of injury. They can also be formed by thumb-sucking habits or early or late tooth loss. On the other hand, adult orthodontic problems won’t get better with age and may need orthodontic surgery. Children’s Orthodontic issues may correct on their own, but their jaws will harden by adulthood. 

To prevent any problems in adulthood, your child can receive orthodontic treatment at our Bethel office, preventing the need for any orthodontic surgery later on in life. If your child is 7 years old and appears to need orthodontic care, don’t wait for the problem to “figure itself out". Contact our Bethel orthodontic office to schedule an initial exam, CT Braces is happy to help straighten your child’s teeth and help them achieve a better, more confident smile.

Bethel Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)

Surgical orthodontics, also referred to as orthognathic surgery, will help treat issues in:
                Jaw bone formation
                Bad bites
                Malocclusion – misaligned teeth.

When a jaw is not correctly aligned, surgical orthodontics is used first, then orthodontic braces will be used to move the teeth into their new, correct positions. Your New Haven orthodontist at CT Braces will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who will perform your surgery in a hospital.

This orthodontic surgery will take several hours to complete, and we insist that you have a rest period of at least two to four weeks. After your surgery, you may need to be fitted for braces that should be worn for six to twelve months, and then a retainer to ensure the placement of your teeth. Surgical orthodontics (otherwise known as orthognathic surgery) is a major medical procedure that has been successfully performed for years. We always want to make sure that you are comfortable with our orthodontic treatments, so please get in touch with our Bethel orthodontic practice to talk about your options.
