Limited Orthodontics An Overview
Dr. Miller provides comprehensive pediatric dental care in Winter Park. This includes a thorough evaluation of the occlusal system of a growing child, looking at the function of the bite and jaw joints. Orthodontic treatment may be considered necessary for the long-term dental health of your child. Orthodontics can address bite problems, malocclusion and a range of dental concerns affecting the function and appearance of your child or teen’s smile. These concerns can include:
- Crowding of teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Protrusion of teeth
- Delayed loss of baby teeth
- Thumbsucking and other oral habits
- Speech problems
- Jaw structure concerns
Dr. Miller offers limited orthodontics to treat early structural concerns and tooth placement, also known as interceptive orthodontics that may be part of a long-term plan, or designed to prevent the need for braces. Early intervention can often mitigate the impact of oral development concerns and minimize the treatment needed to establish a healthy and stable oral foundation.
