Space Maintainers

If your child has lost one or more of their baby teeth, a space maintainer may be required to ensure their mouth develops properly. Space maintainers are placed in the socket where a child’s missing tooth used to be. As the name implies, space maintainers help keep this space open and prevent teeth from shifting. This ensures that your child’s adult teeth continue to grow and erupt properly.

Exposing Unerupted Teeth

If one of your child’s adult teeth doesn’t erupt completely, it may need to be exposed and moved into the proper position. This is common in the maxillary canine, which is one of the front teeth. During treatment, the tooth will be located and surgically exposed. Then, a bracket will be attached to bring the tooth into the proper position in your child’s mouth.

Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most versatile, powerful, and time-tested method of orthodontic correction. Along with other treatments, they can be used to correct almost any orthodontic issue. Whether a patient’s teeth are crooked, crowded, or gapped, traditional braces will shift them into the proper position to provide a straight, even smile.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but they use tooth-colored wires and brackets as well as transparent rubber bands. This makes them look more like part of your natural smile, which some patients prefer. With ceramic braces, patients receive powerful orthodontic correction with the benefits of a discreet treatment.


Invisalign is a great alternative to braces if you have minor-to-moderate orthodontic issues. Instead of wires and brackets, this orthodontic option uses a series of clear plastic aligners, which look similar to a retainer. These aligners exert pressure on your teeth and gradually shift them into a healthier position. If you’re interested in orthodontics but don’t want to wear braces, Invisalign from Dr. Gino may be right for you.

Orthodontics Frequently Asked Questions

When Is the Best Time to Get Orthodontic Treatment?

In general, it is easier to provide orthodontic treatment to pre-teens and teenagers, compared to adults. This is because their mouths are still growing, which makes it easier to shift their teeth into the proper position. However, adults of all ages can also benefit from orthodontic treatment at Dulles Life Smiles.
