Treatment Eliminates Problems Later On
Dr. Kava has extensive orthodontic training for children that will take care of related problems at crucial ages between 6 and 11. During these years, a child has a mix of their baby and permanent teeth. With his specific training and knowledge of craniofacial growth, he can identify the problems of malocclusion and jaw disharmony as it evolves. Early detection and treatment can save a patient from future discomfort and pain.
Early correction saves thousands of dollars for specialized treatment and any extractions of permanent teeth as a teen. Dr. Kava will address crowding of front teeth, crossbites of the back teeth, and mismatched lower and upper jaws to correct these problems in 6 to 18 months or less.
The Easy Approach
You will be pleased to know Dr. Kava offers his patients clear aligners that will straighten your teeth in only 9 – 15 months. They can adjust widely gapped teeth, overcrowding, overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
With 3-D computerized imaging, a complete treatment plan is created from the current position of your teeth to your new smile. Clear thermoplastic aligners are made to fit exactly over your teeth. Approximately every two weeks you advance to the next set of aligners, as they gently reposition your teeth. Evaluation in our office is only every one to two months. Treatment time depends on your personal goals.
During Active Treatment
There are very good reasons to choose clear aligners to correct dental problems. They are nearly invisible, and only detectable when someone looks at your teeth extremely close up. This lets you keep your confidence during treatment.
Aligners are completely comfortable. There are no adjustments to be made to metal wires and no mouth irritation. Headgear is completely eliminated, and you will spend much less time at the dentist’s office.
The best part is that you can eat and drink whatever you like. You wear the aligners all day and during sleep, but you can remove them to eat and clean your teeth properly. You will have a nice, clean look to your teeth when treatment is completed.
