Starting Early for the Best Orthodontic Options

You trust Dr. Nanavati to take care of your child's routine dental care. But you might not realize he also has training in orthodontics. The most crucial age to evaluate your child is between the ages of 6 and 11, when they have a mix of baby and permanent teeth. Dr. Nanavati's thorough knowledge of craniofacial growth and development allows him to identify and correct teeth and jaw disharmony early, saving you money.

Early correction by a trained dentist can save you money and prevent unnecessary extraction of permanent teeth as a teen. Dr. Nanavati can address early crowding of front teeth, crossbites in the back teeth, and mismatched upper and lower jaws, suggesting correction that could take less than 6 to 18 months before they get to their teenage stage.

Individualized Approach for Your Specific Needs

Our team at Happy Sapiens Dental can now make braces more attractive and comfortable than ever before. And using modern advancements, treatment time is no longer 3 to 5 years, but instead, 6 to 24 months is the general timeframe.

Traditional braces use one type of archwire and bracket that are applied to all teeth. But Dr. Nanavati uses the Individual Patient (IP) Appliance, which customizes the designs for both wires and brackets for specific teeth. This makes for optimum results in a shorter amount of time. Wearing these braces means more comfort with improved long-term retention. You will be pleased to find there are fewer visits to the dentist, and you will be smiling a gorgeous new smile in less time than you ever imagined. Individual Patient Orthodontics can be used for almost any type of misalignment of the teeth or jaw and can be used for children, adolescents, and adults. Learn more at www.individualortho.com.

Teeth that are not straight can affect more than just how you look. Teeth that don't fit together correctly can affect your bite, cause early wear of your teeth and be more difficult to keep clean resulting in gum disease. Orthodontic treatment can help.

This guide walks you through the 4 different types of orthodontics available and how they work.
