Welcome back to the ongoing blog of Tulip Tree Dental Care! We are a family-dedicated practice that loves taking care of patients of all ages! That means we offer dental services to children as well as adults. One of these services, Ortho-TainTM, can help your child achieve a straight, beautiful smile right off the bat. You can find this unique service right here at our South Bend, IN location.
If your child needs orthodontic care, we can help. We understand your concerns when it comes to the oral health of your child — and you certainly don’t want to see them suffer through life with a misaligned smile or bite. While it may be tempting to visit a board-certified orthodontist, we want to ensure you that orthodontic care for your child CAN be completed without having to travel all over town to various practices. Because we offer this kid-friendly orthodontic treatment right here in our office, your child can get the care they need at the same convenient place they have their teeth cleaned.
Ortho-Tain can truly do wonders for your child’s appearance, oral health, and general self-confidence. Let’s talk about this solution and why you should consider it over traditional orthodontics.
Why Traditional Metal Braces Aren’t Ideal
Metal braces are made up of metal brackets and wires that just are not comfortable for your child to wear. They tend to scratch and poke the insides of the mouth, creating discomfort that is hard to ignore. In addition, the wires need to be tightened on a regular basis, creating quite a bit of discomfort and even pain (not to mention lots of trips to the orthodontist). If you are looking for a comfortable option, traditional orthodontics definitely are not the answer.
Metal braces may also land your child with a terrible nickname at school. No one likes to look and feel very different from their peers — traditional metal braces will have your child sticking out like a sore thumb. Prevent your child from feeling isolated with orthodontic care that won’t draw attention.
Comfort And Convenience Beyond Brackets And Wires
Ortho-Tain is made of a smooth, soft material that won’t cause your child pain. In addition, it is only worn for part of the day, so it won’t interfere with your child’s social life at all. Much of the alignment work is done while he or she sleeps! Ortho-Tain is one of the most convenient, comfortable orthodontic options on the market for children.
Ortho-Tain is 100 percent removable — this means easy eating and cleaning. Your child can maintain a clean smile and a healthy diet while undergoing orthodontic treatment — no messy brackets and wires to get in the way.
Did you know that Ortho-Tain can be used to actually guide the development of your child’s mouth and teeth? We can use Ortho-Tain not only to treat orthodontic problems but to prevent them as well. This idea of interceptive orthodontics can mean preventing the need for braces as a teenager. Choose Ortho-Tain to help your child’s orthodontic situation straight from the start.
Quick Results That Last For A Lifetime
Another reason kids and parents love Ortho-Tain is because of how quickly they see results! You will be able to see the difference in your child’s smile in as little as four to ten months! Did we mention that these results are long-lasting? Because Ortho-Tain can be used to help guide the growth of your child’s smile, a retainer may not even be required! Of course, this depends on your child’s specific situation — speak to our team if you have any questions.
