Oxford Treatment Options

Child & Teenage Orthodontics  & Teeth Straightening

There are countless orthodontic problems that can occur in children including; teeth that are spaced too wide, jaw growth problems, teeth that protrude, overbites, and underbites. In children, misaligned bites can be caused by tooth loss that happens to early or late in life and a bad thumb- sucking habit. Some of these orthodontic problems can be corrected with age but sometimes the harden as the child grows up into an adult. When these problems are revealed in adulthood, they will not go away on their own and may require orthodontic intervention in the form of surgery.

At CT Braces in Oxford, children can receive the proper treatment to prevent orthodontic problems that will crop up later in adulthood. At the age of seven, if the child needs a procedure, they should be seen promptly as the issue will not correct itself. Reach out to our Oxford office to schedule a consultation. Ct Braces will help your child achieve the perfect smile.

At CT Braces of Oxford, we are aware that children and adults have very different orthodontic needs. We can address both! Call our Oxford office for further information and we can set up an exam.

Oxford Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)

Orthognathic Surgery is a form of Orthodontics that involves surgery. It is an appropriate treatment for:
·         jaw bone formation
·         bad bites
·         malocclusion – misaligned teeth.

A surgical orthodontic procedure is used first when a jaw isn’t aligned. Afterward, orthodontic braces are installed on the teeth to adjust them into the proper alignment. At our CT Braces office in Oxford, we will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The surgery will be scheduled to happen in a hospital.

The procedure will take several hours. CT Braces in Oxford suggests that you take two to four weeks of rest, and then you will be fitted for braces. These braces will be worn for 6 months to a year. Then you will be asked to wear a retainer to solidify the placement of your teeth. Orthognathic surgery is a major medical procedure, but it has become routine throughout the years. Our goal at CT Braces in Oxford is to help you be confident and comfortable with our treatment. Please call our office to set up your first exam.
