An orthodontist’s objective in placing braces
Dr. Blasi emphasizes 3 important aspects of orthodontic treatment:
- oral and overall health of the patient
- function of teeth, gums and bone structure
- facial aesthetics
Whether his patient is a child or an adult, Dr. Blasi considers all three components of orthodontics when formulating a treatment plan. He does believe that children are the easiest to treat and benefit the most from braces because their teeth and bone structure are still developing. Plus, they lack some of the difficult dental issues that adults have–periodontal disease and decay, for example.
However, whatever the age or dental condition, braces from Avanti Dentistry address:
- tooth alignment issues such as crowding, gaps, overlapping, tooth rotation and spacing
- bite problems such as cross bite, over bite, under bite and open bite
- TMD (temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction)
Dr. Blasi says that airway problems in children often result in oxygen deprivation that affects learning and growth. As such, his diagnostic work-up, including 3-D imaging, looks at how the entire maxillo-facial complex of bones, connective tissue, teeth and gums can be corrected to open the airway for best ventilation. Bone reshaping is a critical part of orthodontics.Dr. Blasi consults with his colleagues on periodontal, general dentistry and surgical issues when necessary to create the best outcome for every patient.
