Reliable and Experienced Orthodontist in Fredericton

People visit orthodontic specialists like Dr. Rinehart for many reasons. Self-esteem and insecurity about your appearance may play a role in seeking help but the overriding concern is that malocclusion will affect your ability to chew and speak properly. The different types of malocclusion include open bites, crossbites, overbites and underbites. Orthodontists can correct these misalignments, even in babies born with a cleft palate or cleft lip. Misalignments may also cause snoring, sleep apnea and other breathing problems.

Dr. Rinehart is a trusted Fredericton orthodontist who will provide a thorough diagnosis using an X-ray and will then make a mould of your teeth to examine the current alignment and determine what changes need to be made. In severe cases, your jaw bones may need restructuring in order to heal into better alignment.

The need for orthodontic treatment can be due to many different factors such as heredity, overcrowding of teeth, bone structure of the jaw, losing baby teeth too early, tooth decay, accidents and injuries.

It’s recommended that children see an orthodontist by age 7 if a malocclusion or family history is present. In many cases, orthodontists can align teeth and bones in the jaw that are still developing. By doing so, future bone and teeth development may be less painful. The end result is the creation of a beautiful smile.
