When we talk about orthodontic planning and evaluations, keep in mind that children typically begin orthodontic treatment around the ages of 12 to 14. But waiting that long can lead to more severe problems that could have been addressed earlier with interceptive orthodontics. As young as age 7, our New Canaan orthodontist can begin to take a role in ensuring that your child’s teeth are spaced properly and that their occlusion (or bite) is normal. You can be proactive by bringing your child in for an evaluation and also by being aware of specific signs that can indicate a need for interceptive orthodontics. For example, if you see his or her teeth growing in crooked, problems with chewing, sucking of fingers or thumbs, misplaced teeth, or breathing through the mouth, you should call us and schedule an evaluation. In addition, tooth crowding, shifting jaw or a jaw that makes sounds when it moves, too much space between teeth, and baby teeth that either fall out early or stay in too long also mean that it is time to consider orthodontic planning and evaluation.

Orthodontic planning and evaluation allows your New Canaan orthodontist and you to get out ahead of your child’s orthodontic health. Problems that are ignored now can result in the need for braces, headgear, retainers, and other types of appliances in the future. There are several common methods that may be suggested to assist your child so that she or he has the best chances for positive result. Among these are an arch expansion, in which space is made for adult teeth to grow in without crowding. In some instances, however, one or more teeth may need to be extracted in order to provide adequate room for adult teeth to grow in. Dr. Pardi will discuss his recommendations with you along with the pros and cons so that the best decision possible can be made for your child.

Having a straight smile does not always stem from cosmetic desires. Orthodontic treatment may be desired or deemed necessary because of a malocclusion, or misalignment of teeth, that affects a person’s overall bite. This can cause complications with chewing, eating, and even speaking or breathing in some cases. Malocclusions are often fixed at a younger age because the teeth are still forming and moving on their own as the individual grows. Adults have not seen any such developmental changes in some time and adult bones are denser than those of children and adolescents. Some adults may have even lost permanent teeth, which can also affect or complicate orthodontic treatment. But Victor Pardi, DDS is here to use his years’ worth of expertise to solve any such issues or complications you may have in order to bring you the smile you need and the smile you have always wanted. Adult orthodontics is not impossible with this New Canaan orthodontist. This dental treatment aims to shift your teeth by gently guiding them slowly over a period of months to a few years depending on the severity of the malocclusion. For adults, this time period may be extended due to the density of adult bones or other complications. But the process is still completely doable. Whether you go with traditional wire braces or use Invisalign aligners, you will visit Victor Pardi, DDS periodically to check on your progression and to further the process step by step.

You will have the smile you have always dreamed of before you know it after visiting this New Canaan orthodontist. Victor Pardi, DDS can provide you or anyone in your family with the proper orthodontic treatment necessary in order to achieve that healthy winning smile.
