Middlebury Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening

There are many orthodontic problems that commonly occur such as; teeth that are spaced too wide, teeth that stick out, jaw growth issues, underbites, and overbites in children. Bad bites in children can be caused by thumb-sucking and tooth loss that occurs too early or too late in life. Orthodontic problems in children may be corrected with age, but they also can harden as the child becomes an adult. Adult orthodontic issues will not go away on their own and may require orthodontic surgery.

Children can receive treatment at our Middlebury office in order to prevent orthodontic intervention in adulthood. Children who are seven years old and seem to need an orthodontic procedure should be seen right away. The problem will not work itself out. Please call our Middlebury office to set up an initial exam appointment. Ct Braces will correct your child’s crooked teeth and will set them up to have a straight and perfect smile.

Two-Phase Treatment

CT Braces offers a Two-Phase treatment to your child’s healthy smile in Middlebury CT.

  1. To align your child’s teeth properly, a Middlebury Orthodontist will design a plan for treatment depending on tooth crowding, spacing issues, or jaw growth.
  2. During the first phase, the Middlebury orthodontics team will design a recommended treatment for your child’s teeth that addresses any crowding of the teeth, jaw growth, and spacing issues. This will make sure your child’s adult teeth will be aligned correctly once they grow into place. With this treatment, your child will not need a retainer.
  3. During Phase Two, our Orthodontic team will give your child braces for the upper and lower rows to align permanent teeth.

Middlebury 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.

The surgical orthodontic procedure is used first when a jaw is misaligned. Afterward, orthodontic braces are put on the teeth to move them into the correct alignment. At CT Braces in Middlebury, we will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The procedure will take place in a hospital.

The surgery will take a few hours. CT braces suggests you take at least two to four weeks to rest. Post-surgery, you will be fitted for braces. These braces will be worn for six months to a year, followed by a retainer to solidify the placement of your teeth. Orthognathic surgery is a medical procedure that despite being a major surgical procedure, has been performed for years and has become rather routine. We want to ensure that you are comfortable and confident with our treatment, so we request you get in touch with our CT Braces Middlebury orthodontic office to discuss your options.
