Your child’s teeth play an important role in the overt appearance of their smile as well as the basic function of their mouth. Alignment issues that aren’t corrected in a reasonable amount of time can increase your son or daughter’s chances of suffering from dental health conditions like tooth enamel attrition and dental fractures.

Fortunately, a consultation at Barnett Orthodontics’s orthodontic clinic can help determine the most effective method for correcting an alignment problem. This might call for installing traditional braces into their mouth and cementing metal brackets onto the faces of their teeth.

If one area of your child’s mouth has severely overcrowded, Dr. Richard Barnett and his team might recommend extracting one of the teeth. This will allow the sufficient space for the adjacent teeth to gradually come into their ideal alignment.

Once the periodontal tissues have been sutured Dr. Richard Barnett will provide you with the necessary recovery information to ensure their gums heal without complications. This might also include a prescription for anti-inflammatory or pain medications.

If you are in the Richfield, Utah, area and you are concerned about the alignment of your son or daughter’s permanent teeth, you should call 435-896-4930 to set up a braces consultation at Barnett Orthodontics.
