Malocclusions are defined as a bad bite or bite problem. Malocclusions are usually treated with orthodontics and can be treated early in order to fix the bite and allow for healthier, straighter teeth. At the office of Charles P. Fiorenti, DDS, our orthodontic office Bayport treats adolescents and adults with malocclusion problems. We are a one stop office for pediatric and adult dental care.
Our children’s dental services include dental exams, braces for kids, dental cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants. We provide children with orthodontics that help to correct malocclusions due to crowded teeth or other issues. If kids have crowded or crooked teeth, the upper and lower jaw may be out of alignment, requiring braces to fix. Or, if a bite problem is being experienced, it can be fixed with braces. The malocclusion may be a result of genetics or developmental conditions. Sometimes poor oral health habits can also be a cause, as is the case with thumb sucking and tongue thrusting. Treatment at our orthodontic office Bayport is designed to address these and other problems causing the misalignment or malocclusion.
Because crowded and crooked teeth can be harder to keep clean, they promote more cavities and periodontal disease. Braces help to gently move teeth into the proper position to eradicate the problem. Brackets and retainers help achieve straightening by using tension to move the teeth into place. Orthodontic treatment can help create a more attractive smile and better oral health for your kids. For more information on correcting yours or your child’s teeth with orthodontics, call our orthodontic office Bayport today for more information. We also provide restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers, teeth whitening and crowns. Veneers can be used to fix broken or chipped teeth, or over teeth that have yellowed to provide a more consistent and even set of teeth.
