Overcrowded Teeth Might Need to Be Addressed with Traditional Braces

Posted .

Primary tooth loss, genetics, and oral development issues can sometimes lead to issues with the alignment spacing of your child’s emerging permanent teeth. In some of these cases, it can cause two or more teeth to develop excessively close.

If this tight spacing or overcrowding problem isn’t corrected in a reasonable amount of time can increase their chances of suffering dental health conditions such as tooth enamel attrition and dental fractures.

If your son or daughter has overcrowded permanent teeth it’s best to schedule a consultation with an experienced orthodontist like Dr. Ronald Champion. After assessing the severity of the alignment issues he will present you with an effective treatment plan.  

This often calls for him to install traditional braces onto your child’s teeth. If one of the teeth is severely compromised or there isn’t sufficient oral space to affect the correction, Dr. Ronald Champion might recommend extracting one of the teeth. This will allow the sufficient space for the neighboring teeth to gradually come into their ideal alignment.  

Once this is done he will provide you with the necessary recovery information to ensure their gums heal without complications. This might also a prescription for pain management medication, which will need to be taken as directed in the stated dosages and times.
