The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends all children have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Early treatment can straighten teeth, guide erupting teeth into position, correct bite problems, and reduce crowding. It also can prevent the need for tooth extractions and shorten the time in braces as a teenager. A variety of fixed or removable appliances may be used depending on your childs needs. Space Maintainers prevent the permanent teeth from drifting into spaces reserved for unerupted teeth. Expanders are used to widen the arches and make room for permanent teeth.

Orthognathic surgery corrects jaw irregularities and improves function (ability to chew, speak, and breathe better) and facial appearance. Surgery straightens the jaw but also moves the teeth, so braces are used after surgery to align the teeth.
TMJ splints are often used to help correct or minimize jaw problems, discomfort and/or pain upon closing the mouth. TMJ treatment can help alleviate headaches and muscle tension in the neck and shoulders, and jaws.
