Orthodontic Treatment Temecula CA

At some point in their lives, most people will need to undergo some form of orthodontic treatment. At Roncone Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on treating every member of the family, from young children to grandma or grandpa.

While childhood is the ideal time to move teeth, more adults than ever before are opting for orthodontic treatment in Temecula, CA.

Early Treatment


Most people associate traditional metal braces with teenagers, but earlier orthodontic treatment can be quite beneficial.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) suggests that a child should have their first orthodontic check-up by the age of seven. By this time, a child has enough permanent teeth for us to make a proper evaluation.

Early orthodontic treatment is designed to intercept a growing problem, correct the situation, and guide the continuing growth of the jaw and facial bones. Simply put, the teeth are easier to move during the development phase.

Many orthodontic problems are easier to treat at an early age before greater secondary complications arise. Overly crowded teeth and severe malocclusions (misaligned bites) can ultimately shorten the lifespan of your teeth.

Adult Treatment


Adult treatment is the fastest growing area of orthodontics. The AAO has stated that one in five orthodontic patients are over the age of 18. If you are an adult and considering orthodontic treatment, there are a few things to keep in mind:
•  The process may take a bit longer for you than an adolescent or child. The average treatment time is about two years.
•  Your facial bones and jawbones have stopped growing, and some structural changes may not be possible without surgical intervention.
•  We may recommend a periodontal evaluation before you move forward with orthodontics. Gum disease can complicate your treatment and results. This is typically a problem that only affects adults.

If you are concerned with aesthetics, we offer some discreet treatment options, from clear aligners to ceramic braces. Talk with Dr. Christopher Roncone during your initial consultation to learn more about your options. Regardless of which option you choose, we are confident you will be happy with the results!

TMJ Treatment


A malocclusion, or misaligned bite, can result in some secondary complications. At Roncone Orthodontics, our goal is to correct these types of orthodontic issues and improve your oral and overall health. Orthodontic treatment may be the ideal solution for problems that initially seem unrelated, such as TMJ disorders.

Retainers


Most people think orthodontic treatment is over after they get their braces off or finish their series of aligner trays. However, keeping your teeth in their proper position is just as important as moving them there. For this reason, the use of a retainer after your treatment is complete is crucial.

Emergency Orthodontic Care


If you experience trauma or injury to the mouth, emergency orthodontic care may be necessary. If a part of your braces becomes loose or breaks, do not attempt to fix it yourself. Be sure to call us as soon as possible so we can get you in for an appointment. If you experience severe trauma or injury, you may need to seek emergency orthodontic care or seek the help of an oral surgeon.

Sleep Apnea


Sleep disorders are much more common than you may think. According to the National Sleep Foundation, sleep apnea affects more than 18 million Americans. This figure is, of course, based on reported instances.

Many people may not know they suffer from sleep apnea until their symptoms are reported by a sleep partner. This means the real figure could be much higher. If you think you may have sleep apnea, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible, due to the serious nature of the disorder.

At Roncone Orthodontics, we offer oral appliances to alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea. An oral appliance can provide you with safer and more restful sleep!

Post Orthodontic Care (Retainers)


Protecting your investment is almost as important as the treatment itself. A retainer is a critical appliance that will keep your teeth in their proper position after orthodontics.

Without a retainer, your teeth will slowly shift back out of alignment. Unfortunately, your periodontal ligaments will want to move your teeth back to where they were before. Over time, these ligaments will "lock" your teeth in place with the use of a retainer.

Orthognathic Surgery


Our jaw is perhaps the most overlooked aspect of our oral health. If you suffer from jaw-related problems, you may qualify for orthognathic surgery. Orthognathic, or corrective jaw surgery, typically addresses the intricacies of occlusion (the way your teeth fit together).
