Although orthodontics encompasses a wide array of treatment options, the three most common recommendations Dr. Schuster may make after an initial consultation are:
Once all or most of the permanent teeth are in, braces and sometimes an appliance/retainer along with braces will be to used to correct tooth and jaw alignment.
Occasionally a problem with tooth or jaw alignment may be easier to correct and/or will be more stable if it is addressed while some permanent teeth, but many baby teeth are still present. In this case, Dr. Schuster may recommend braces and/or an appliance/retainer to correct the problem. Comprehensive orthodontics may still be needed later on once all of the permanent teeth are in the mouth.
If several baby teeth are still present and Interceptive Orthodontics is not necesssary, Dr. Schuster will recommend Observation. She may see your child at 3, 6 or 12 month intervals to monitor his/her growth and tooth alignment until he/she is ready for Comprehensive Orthodontics.
