Having Dr. [doctor_name] install traditional orthodontic braces in your child’s mouth creates an effective system capable of realigning your son or daughter’s misaligned teeth. This is often a necessary step for preserving the integrity of their teeth in the long term to prevent complications from dental attrition and dental fractures.
Dr. Ricci and [hisher] orthodontic specialists often use traditional braces to correct an underbite, overbite, significantly misaligned teeth, or problems resulting from overcrowded teeth.
In a case of significant overcrowding that causes a single tooth to turn at a severe angle, we might recommend extracting a tooth. The small void created will provide sufficient space for the other teeth to gradually move into.
Afterward, we will likely prescribe pain management or anti-inflammatory medications to help your child remain comfortable while the underlying periodontal tissues heal.
You should expect the extraction site sutures to bleed a little for a day or two after the treatment. They can control the bleeding by lightly biting down on a piece of sterile gauze. Once the bleeding stops, a gentle rinse with lukewarm saltwater can help clear their mouth.
If you live in the [city], [state], area and your son or daughter are struggling with overcrowded teeth, you should call [phone] to set up a consultation at [practice_name].
