Children should cease thumb sucking when the permanent front teeth are ready to erupt. Typically, children stop between the ages of 2 and 4 years. Thumb sucking that persists beyond the eruption of permanent teeth can cause improper growth of the mouth and malalignment of the teeth. A permanent solution to thumb sucking is an appliance called a “fixed palatal crib”. This appliance is custom made by the dental laboratory after an impression is made in the clinic. The appliance is cemented on the upper six year permanent molars and is positioned behind the upper front teeth on the roof of the mouth. The crib consists of semi-circular stainless steel wires that are fastened to molars using steel molar bands.The stainless steel wires fit behind the child’s upper front teeth, and they are barely visible, if at all. This appliance does not cause any discomfort and is not affected by eating.It serves as a reminder to the child that the thumb is not supposed to be in his mouth. Normally recommends leaving the appliance in place for at least 6 months or longer.
Tongue thrusting, simply defined, is the habit of placing the tongue in the wrong position during swallowing, either too far forward or to the sides. It is estimated that every 24 hours you swallow a total of 1,200 to 2,000 times, with about four pounds of pressure per swallow. This constant pressure of the tongue will force the teeth and arches out of alignment. Besides the pressure exerted while swallowing, nervous thrusting also pushes the tongue against the teeth while it is at rest. This is an involuntary, subconscious habit that is difficult to correct. A tongue thrusting appliance is made for the patient that is permanently cemented in place. It is necessary to correct this habit prior to doing orthodontic treatment on a patient. If this habit is not corrected, the teeth will relapse after orthodontics due to the tongue pushing against the teeth when swallowing.
Treatment for mouth breathing is available and can be beneficial for children if the condition is caught early. A dentist can check for mouth breathing symptoms and swollen tonsils. If tonsils and/or adenoids are swollen, they can be surgically removed by an ear-nose-throat (ENT) specialist. If the face and mouth are narrow, dentists can use expansion appliances to help widen the sinuses and open nasal airway passages.
Orthodontic treatment carried out with Routine metal braces using the Preadjusted Systems like MBT, Roth, Tip-Edge, Self ligating Systems. These 4 systems options reduce friction & pain dramatically also cutting down the total treatment time than the conventional bracket systems. Fastest Orthodontic Correction achieved with no extraction of teeth in adult patients using Tip-Edge Mechanics.
Invisible orthodontics- invisalign, clear path, ceramic braces, lingual orthodontics Latest in ceramic brackets for those patients who do not want metallic braces.
For select cases lingual or invisible braces bonded on the back of the teeth for patients in media or on request.
There is always a reservation from adults to wear visible braces. In such patients Invisalign offers another cosmetic option in adult patients wanting to undergo orthodontic treatment with this option.
Completely transparent Due to the removable nature of the device, No food restrictions Smooth comfortable, easy to clean
Passive self-ligating systems use brackets that do not require elastic o-rings to hold the wires in place. By not using the elastic o-rings, the wires freely slide through the slots without friction, which necessitates new mechanics to use the system to move teeth. In addition, no o-rings means better oral hygiene, since they are a significant trap for oral bacteria. Faster treatment, dramatic results achieved in 6 months time. Virtually painless treatment with no extraction of teeth.
