Preventative Braces

What Are Preventative Braces?

Preventative braces provide proactive treatment for the early correction of conditions such as:

  • Overbite
  • Jaw abnormalities
  • Crowded teeth

Preventative braces are most often used for treatment of children ages 7 to 9 and may include treatment of baby or primary teeth. Undergoing orthodontic adjustments at earlier ages helps to ensure optimum dental health as a child progresses into adulthood. Preventative treatment works to eliminate the need for more extensive and costly issues affecting adult teeth.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic and TMJ treatments. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient.

With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the outcome is better for the patient, and the results extend beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.
