One of the specialized services our Sugarbug Dental team is pleased to provide our young dental patients is high-quality orthodontic care, thanks to our skilled orthodontist, Dr. Vikram Nanda. If your child has irregularities in their teeth and jaws, such as crowded, gapped, spaced or misaligned teeth, orthodontic treatment can correct this by aligning the teeth and jaw properly to fix abnormalities of the bite. This can also boost their self-confidence when they smile, talk, or chew.
Bite issues can encompass overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites. Dr. Nanda has the experience and skill to restore your child’s healthy and aligned bite, which is crucial to your child’s developing oral health as well as their appearance for a well functioning and appealing bite. When a bite is abnormal, it can create dental issues, including cavities and gum disease, tooth grinding and even jaw pain. Conversely, a healthy bite allows your child to bite, chew, eat and talk normally and with ease.
Dr. Nanda can correct your child’s bite issues and misaligned teeth using modern braces that are more comfortable than ever before by gently realigning crooked teeth to bring them back to their optimal position. As your child wears their braces for the duration of the alignment process, the metal brackets, wires and bands will gradually shift their teeth where they need to be as Dr. Nanda makes ongoing adjustments.
At Sugarbug Dental, we also offer tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain brackets for children who don’t want their braces to stand out. If you would like your child to see Dr. Nanda for an evaluation, we welcome you to call our office today. Your child deserves the best possible orthodontic care and the healthiest, most aligned smile possible! Dr. Nanda also offers a popular orthodontic treatment called Invisalign™ for teens and adults who are seeking discreet orthodontic treatment.
