Orthodontics deals with the correction of twisted, misaligned, crooked or incorrectly positioned teeth. The treatments in orthodontics can be described as both cosmetic and corrective. Patients who require orthodontic treatments may have low self-esteem or difficulty eating. Problems arising from orthodontic issues also include grinding, chipped or broken teeth, and misaligned jaws. Having orthodontic treatment combined with other dental treatments will restore your confidence and improve your general oral health.

Not all dentists are qualified to carry out orthodontic treatments, which is why Marvin Village Dentistry and Dr. Ginger Walford are the ideal choice for your family dentist in Charlotte. Dr. Walford and her team can identify orthodontic related issues in young children, which will allow us to take corrective measures at the most optimal age. Children are more self-conscious about their teeth than adults. Each member of the team at Marvin Village Dentistry knows this and is an expert at both reassuring and putting kids at ease, when your little one is faced with the prospect of scary sounding corrective treatments.

Orthodontic Aftercare

One of the key aspects of successful orthodontic treatment is ensuring proper after care. Braces, for instances, can promote the spread of decay if proper oral hygiene is not observed. By getting your child involved in the process in a caring and educational way, the team at Marvin Village Dentistry will help you ensure that does not become an issue.

As a parent, we will also provide you with all the information and resources you need, as orthodontic treatments take varying periods of time to correct problems with your child's teeth. Problems from having orthodontic procedures are avoidable and we will do everything we can to help. Dr. Walford will revisit with your or your child, in order to ensure that your teeth, gums and smile remain healthy. Contact Marvin Village Dentistry today to schedule a consultation.
