Malocclusion and You
Malocclusion refers to the many jaw and teeth alignment issues people experience. These issues typically become obvious when the smile is developing, around age seven, and may only grow worse over time. By age 18 the smile is done growing and changing, and those who did not undergo braces treatment may have teeth that match up when biting down, causing multiple oral health complications. Over time, malocclusion may cause the following:
• TMJ Issues
• Broken Teeth and Restorations
• Gum Disease
• Speech Issues
At Dr. Rong’s practice, our team diagnoses and resolves these issues to give you a smile to be proud of. We take pride in the process of shifting our patients’ teeth and jaw into proper alignment, and we strive to do so preventively, protecting them from long-term developmental issues.
Interceptive and Full Orthodontics in Lower Manhattan
We tailor braces to each patient’s needs and goals for their oral health. Treatment plans are made to target the specific occlusal issues we discover through X-rays and an examination of health records. Instead of using a standard approach for everyone, we may mix and match various solutions to enhance the success of your treatment. From appliances and braces for children to cosmetically-minded braces for adults, we have all that the family needs.
Interceptive (Phase 1) Care
Children from seven to 11 may need orthodontic intervention to correct particularly severe cases of malocclusion. We combine modern appliances and traditional braces to gently adjust the size of the jaws and bring teeth into place. This first phase of treatment may deter the second round of braces, as long as care guidelines are properly followed.
Teenagers and adults have orthodontic needs that often go unaddressed. Dr. Rong provides efficient and customized care for these patients, correcting the smile as comfortably as possible. Our practice utilizes cutting-edge materials to make treatment as comfortable as possible. We offer tooth-colored ceramic brackets and many options for ligature coloration, allowing patients to customize their care. Those who are aesthetically-minded can minimize the impact braces have on their appearance.
