What is an Orthodontist? What does an Orthodontist do?
Many times when people think of an Orthodontist, they think of braces. The fact is, orthodontic care is so much more than that!
Many people don’t realize that in addition to installing dental braces to correct issues with a smile, Orthodontists also provided preventative orthodontic care starting in children between the ages of 6 and 10 years old.
Preventative Orthodontic Care can Save Thousands!

Preventative Orthodontic Care
When a child has developing malocclusion’s (imperfect positioning of the teeth when the jaws are closed) a preventative orthodontic care treatment program can prevent the need for braces when children have grown into their teeth.
Space Maintainers, Guided Eruption’s, Early Extraction’s, Preventing Thumb Sucking, and Dental Head Gear are all types of Orthodontic care that can be implemented to prevent teeth from growing in crooked or other damages.
These types of orthodontic care typically begin in children 6-10 years of age and can last 6-18 months.
Orthodontic Care for Teens
Phase 2 Orthodontic Care (Braces) may be required in teenagers.
Orthodontic Care for Teens vary’s from Preventative Orthodontics in children (6-10 years of age) in that by the time a child has reached their teen years, all of their teeth will have grown in.
Now, if you see protruding teeth, an overbite or an underbite, or your teen is having difficulty chewing or biting their food, their is a good chance that they may need braces.
If this is the case, you can trust the Orthodontists at BluePointe Dental.
