Seymour Orthodontic Treatment Options
Child & Teenage Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
Orthodontic issues your child can come across are crowding, widely spaced teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, or bad bites for children are often inherited or a result of an 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.
Giving your child orthodontic treatment early on is a great way to prevent any problems in adulthood. Our Seymour office is more than qualified to help prevent your child from 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 “straighten itself out". Contact our Seymour 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.
Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment
To help your child have a beautiful, healthy smile you can use our Two-Phase treatment that consists of three steps.
- In phase one, your Seymour Orthodontist will help recommend your treatment for any jaw growth, tooth crowding or spacing issues. This will help your child’s permanent teeth to become properly aligned.
- Then, during a resting period, your child’s permanent teeth can naturally grow into place without the use of a retainer.
- In phase two, our Orthodontic professionals will provide your child with a full set of upper and lower braces to help align any permanent teeth.

Seymour Surgical Orthodontics (Orthognathic Surgery)
Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is used to treat severe 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 Seymour orthodontist at CT Braces will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who will perform your surgery in a hospital.
This type of orthodontic surgery will take several hours to complete, and we insist that you have a rest period of at least two to four weeks. When your surgery is finished, 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 Seymour orthodontic practice to talk about your options.
