Anderson Dental can provide you with the following Orthodontic treatments:
A Space Maintainer is usually a fixed appliance designed to maintain an existing space. A primary tooth is sometimes lost prematurely because of tooth decay or injury. When this occurs before the replacement tooth is ready to erupt, the nearby teeth can shift or drift into space the primary tooth occupied causing crowding or a lack of space for the permanent teeth. A Space Maintainer is important to maintain necessary space for the permanent teeth and help guide them into position.
A Hawley Appliance is a retainer that is worn after braces are removed in order to hold the teeth in their new correct position. The Hawley retainer can be fabricated with various types of clasps for retention, depending on the doctor’s preference or patient’s need.
Should you need advanced additional treatment, Dr. Anderson will refer you to an orthodontics professional with the utmost standards for your care.
