When an adult or child needs orthodontic treatment, Dr. Andre Nazarov will choose non-extraction orthodontics whenever possible. Non-extraction orthodontics involve the straightening of teeth without removing any permanent teeth.
Many people have teeth that look too large for their jaw. At Allegro Orthodontics, we believe that it is not the teeth that are too large; we believe that the jaw is too small for the teeth. If a patient has a small jaw, the teeth often become crowded and “buck” teeth may develop. With non-extraction orthodontics, the patient’s jaw is developed and expanded to make room for all of the permanent teeth.
Many benefits come because of non-extraction orthodontics. Developing the jaw so that all the permanent teeth fit properly greatly enhances facial esthetics and patient’s smile. The smile becomes wider and more noticeable. Functional appliances and Damon System braces do most of the work in non-extraction orthodontics. Expansion and development of the jawbones has excellent retention because it involves bone growth.
Traditional orthodontics often involve the removal of the four bicuspid teeth causing premature “facial aging”, but with non-extraction orthodontics, those teeth are saved and contribute to a beautiful smile and functional bite for lifelong.
