While many would like to grow up with uniform teeth, traditional braces can be unattractive and cause patient’s to avoid treatment. Ortho-Tain® offers an alternative, preventive solution to straightening teeth without the need of braces.
What is Ortho-Tain®?
Ortho-Tain® offers patients options with several different types of corrective dental appliances used to straighten teeth without the need of brackets or wires. These appliances are made to specifically target a particular phase in an individual’s life. Ortho-Tain® offers three different occlusal-guiding appliances.
Made for children between the ages of 5 and 7, Nite-Guide® is a comfortable, clear appliance used only a night to help guide children’s teeth into proper alignment while they’re still developing. This treatment can prevent the need of traditional braces down the road. Nite-Guide® works best for active children that want to avoid wearing additional hardware that can cause injury.
Worn for anywhere between four and ten months, Occlus-o-Guide® is designed for children between the ages of 8 and 12, the time most children transition from primary teeth to permanent teeth, to guide erupting teeth into its ideal alignment. This appliance allows the correction of most temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and other malocclusions. Occlus-o-Guide® is removable, allowing patients to brush and floss without requiring additional hygiene tools traditional braces would need.
Designed for teens and adults ages 12 and up, this application can correct misaligned teeth in as little as a month up to 12 months. This method uses a set of clear aligners, beginning with slight adjustments and eventually graduating into an ideal alignment. Ortho-T® offers a discreet alternative to traditional braces without the bulk or unwanted attention. Additionally, the appliance can be used as a retainer once a patient has completed their treatment.
How can Ortho-Tain help children?
While traditional braces continue to be effective for treating patients with severe cases of malocclusion, Ortho-Tain® provides an affordable solution to many common problems addressed by braces without the hefty price tag. Appliances from Ortho-Tain® can correct overbite, underbite, crossbite, overcrowding, gaps, and crooked teeth.
Additionally, Ortho-Tain® provides many benefits traditional braces cannot, such as:
- No Diet Restrictions
- Discreet or Practically Invisible Treatment Method
- Removable Appliance
- Treatment with No Metal Brackets or Wires
As children develop, it’s important to engage in preventive dental care to highlight the natural beauty with the help of early orthodontic care. Ensuring children grow up with straight teeth can contribute to the child’s sense of self-affirmation and improve their overall confidence.
