Your child’s oral structure will change significantly as they grow up. The natural expansion helps to accommodate the 32 permanent teeth that will serve them throughout adult life. Sometimes multiple teeth can develop very close together. The tight space can cause one or more to deviate from its ideal alignment in their bite pattern.

Left unaddressed, this alignment issue could lead to other dental health complications. Misaligned and over crowded teeth are often at increased risk of suffering from dental fractures and problems with dental attrition.

If your son or daughter has misaligned or overcrowded teeth, you should consider setting up a braces consultation with Dr. Gurusharan Singh. After a thorough examination, our dentist might recommend installing traditional braces into their mouth.

Your child will need to return to Gurusharan Singh Seven Days for regularly scheduled adjustment appointments. Each of these important sessions can effectively tighten the orthodontic components to gradually bring their teeth ever closer to their ideal position.

Once their teeth have attained their corrected position, our dentist can remove the braces components. At that point, your child will need to use a retainer to make sure that their teeth maintain their corrected position.

If you live in the Indianapolis, Indiana, area and your son or daughter has overcrowded or misaligned teeth, you should call 317-893-2700 to set up a braces consultation at Gurusharan Singh Seven Days.
