What is Limited Orthodontics?

Limited orthodontics is a term encompassing a variety of treatments. Put simply, it is the general term used for various targeted treatments that can improve and aid the alignment and function of the jaw as well. Often your dentist will do this by analyzing the appearance of the bite to identify alignment issues. Limited orthodontics is also known as interceptive orthodontics and is essential for the overall dental health in the long run. The treatment plan can span over a few weeks or months, depending upon the condition.

What Can Limited Orthodontics Treat?

Limited orthodontics can treat various issues. Most of them revolve around oral and structural development and teeth placement.
•  Crowded teeth
•  Spaced out teeth
•  Delayed loosening of baby teeth
•  Protruding teeth
•  Misaligned jaw structure
•  Harmful oral habits

To identify the exact treatment method and the condition to be treated, dentists analyze the jaw and bite joints at regular checkups to ensure they are developing as they should. Thumb sucking and other bad habits can often hinder development, which impacts the function of the jaw in the long run.

Limited Orthodontics Treatment Methods

Limited orthodontics uses various treatment methods to treat primary teeth and jaw development issues in children. The child may need to opt for braces on a few teeth or get partial aligners. In some cases, the child also needs retainers to help with the alignment.

Your treatment may involve the use of palatal expanders, partial braces, spacers, and various other tools to ensure the job is done right. After you get treated with limited orthodontics, you may need to consult an orthodontist to begin the second phase of the treatment.
