Being a parent to young children has a million responsibilities. There are the usual run of childhood illnesses, the occasional injury, the nighttime terrors, and the problem that kids have fitting in.
Not to mention all the “explorations,” spills, boo-boos, and ton of other things to take care of.
And as they get older, there’s dating, and driving, and their first jobs, and…
One of the things that parents may be forced to worry about is their children’s smiles.
Whether your children’s teeth come in straight or need some help to align properly isn’t within your control.
Sometimes those crooked or misaligned teeth aren’t apparent until late in childhood or early adolescence. Sometimes they show up quite early.
Decades ago, there was a “wait and see” mindset when it came to children’s teeth no comin in straight. The frequent result was that many children experienced years of having a mouth full of metal.
Today, earlier intervention is becoming the standard. Which is very welcome new to parents, because nobody likes the idea of their children having to wear braces. For all too many of us, the memories of our middle school or high school friends having to endure braces is all too clear. Or maybe it’s our own memories of being teased and called “metal-mouth,” “Jaws,” or something equally embarrassing.
The Really Good News
If your young child’s teeth need straightening, there’s no need for the discomfort and embarrassment of braces. Tulip Tree Dental Care is proud to offer Ortho-Tain® to correct your children’s teeth without braces.
Ortho-Tain is a proven, preventative pediatric treatment that has been used by over 3 million children. Unlike typical “metal in the mouth” braces, Ortho-Tain is a clear mouth appliance that resembles a mouthguard.
Unlike a simple mouthguard, though, Ortho-Tain actually guides the teeth as they develop so that they come in straight. And results can happen in as little as a few months, instead of the two years or more that braces often require. That’s welcome news for children and parents alike – two years is an eternity in kids’ years and it can seem equally long for the parents of an unhappy child.
No Embarrassing Wires
Generally, we recommend beginning Ortho-Tain treatment between ages 4 and 7 years. Your child wears the Ortho-Tain appliance during sleep, not during school or play hours. There’s none of the social embarrassment, the stigma, the feeling “different” from everybody else that happens with metal braces.
And unlike metal braces, Ortho-Tain is generally easy for your child to adjust to. Since the appliance is worn only while sleeping, there’s no problem with eating favorite foods, getting food particles stuck in metal braces, or wires that can poke or pinch. And there’s no unending string of appointments to adjust braces or deal with problems.
Ortho-Tain has been in use for decades. It’s an affordable, comfortable, and easily tolerated alternative to braces. In fact, with Ortho-Tain, your child probably won’t have to wear uncomfortable and embarrassing braces later in life.
Your child’s sleep is really important. Ortho-Tain® can help.
Extensive research has revealed a lot of potential benefits to using Ortho-Tain. Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) causes a number of behavioral problems. Many of those symptoms are similar to the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). By naturally and safely increasing the size of the airway, Ortho-Tain can help improve your child’s sleep and reduce the severity of those symptoms.
There may even be a reduction in the frequency and/or severity of bedwetting when your child uses Ortho-Tain. And what parent wouldn’t welcome that?
You want your child to have the best possible start in life.
Ortho-Tain is a proven, preventative pediatric treatment can help enhance your child’s oral health, bolster their self-esteem, and avoid years of discomfort and embarrassment. And since Ortho-Tain is significantly more affordable than metal braces, it’s a very welcome option for parents.
