Orthodontics is a special branch of dental medicine that focuses on achieving optimal alignment for the teeth, bite, and jaw. Traditional treatment has focused on the use of braces to achieve this goal. Today, in addition to metal braces, there are a number of other treatments.

Each requires additional training beyond that given in dental school. Here’s the difference between a dentist and an orthodontist.
Sucking a thumb or finger (s) typically is not a concern for children preschool age or younger. Most children will stop on their own if you give them time between the ages of 3 to 6 years. This coincides with when a child is old enough to be able to have a productive conversation about the habit. We have found that for most kids this does not happen before age 5 or 6, though sometimes we try to “plant the seed” of stopping the habit earlier as something to consider “for when the big teeth try to come in.”

Our orthodontics professionals do their best work to make both better. In this post, we’ll show you how they do it? Let’s crack on…
