Save Time & Money In The Future With Ortho-Tain® For Your Kid
Ortho-Tain is an oral appliance that looks a lot like an athletic mouthguard. They are designed to comfortably guide your child’s teeth as they emerge to ensure that their chompers are straight and in the right place when the teeth erupt. As a preventive treatment, Ortho-Tain can help your child avoid the need for traditional braces or other orthodontic services in the future.
If you have an older child that has already gone through the hassle of having braces, you know just how time-consuming their upkeep and routine adjustment appointments can be. Or maybe you have had dental braces in the past yourself. If you don’t know anything about traditional braces, the time commitment they demand in terms of dental appointments should not be underestimated.
Of course, another way traditional braces take up a lot of time is in the overall treatment period. Depending on how crooked a child or teenager’s teeth have come in, they may need to wear their braces for up to two years or even longer. That’s because traditional braces have to use gradual pressure to adjust the position of teeth that are firmly held in place by jawbone.
But by using Ortho-Tain, the position of your child’s teeth will be adjusted as their teeth and jawbone continue to grow and change. Instead of dealing with crooked teeth when your child is a teenager, you’ll head off the problem before it’s established. We can even start Ortho-Tain treatment when your little one is just four years old and still has their baby teeth!
Ortho-Tain is also a much more affordable dental treatment than traditional braces. For one thing, as you could probably infer from the information above, Ortho-Tain is far less labor-intensive. We’ll provide the oral appliance and check it is still doing the job during routine dental cleanings and exams. Traditional braces are also more expensive because they are far more complex in terms of construction.
If you have any questions about the cost of Ortho-Tain or other alternative treatments, just let us know. We accept a variety of payment options for your convenience and would be happy to discuss them with you.
Learn The Additional Benefits Of Ortho-Tain
On top of saving you time and money in the long run, Ortho-Tain can also help your child avoid a number of other problems that you might not expect. Because Ortho-Tain can help a child with a small airway develop a larger one, they may even prevent ear infections and asthma! Ortho-Tain can also potentially:
- Improve your child’s quality of sleep, even helping them to break the habit of bed wetting
- Allow children to speak more clearly and naturally
- Relieve symptoms of attention deficit disorders, including hyperactivity
Dr. Hurcomb saw many of these results in the Ortho-Tain treatment of her own son. In a matter of just three months:
- His teeth shifted so that he no longer had an overbite
- He stopped wetting the bed
- He started sleeping through the night
