What is the benefit of Orthodontics? – In fact, the results are more than you can see!!
You already know that braces straighten teeth. But what you may not know is that a beautiful smile is just one of the benefits orthodontics has to offer. Bringing teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment not only produces a great smile, but a healthy one as well. Straight teeth simply function better and are easier to clean.And last but far from least is the increased confidence and self-esteem that a healthy smile provides. This psychological benefit can be a significant factor in the decision to undergo treatment and is often listed as a patient’s #1 treatment goal. A beautiful smile is a pleasure to own and a pleasure to see.
So remember: an attractive smile is just the start. Improved oral health and general well-being are important treatment goals as well.

Good app to see what’s going on
dr-nicola-crichigno.patientrewardshub.com Check out what some of our awesome patients have to say about us.
October means something a little different to our team at Crichigno Orthodontics because this is Orthodontic Health Month. During October. Our goal is to draw attention to the fact that everyone needs to be evaluated for orthodontic treatment. You are never too young or too old if your bite or smile needs correction.
It's recommended that parents start early and all kids be evaluated 7 – 8 years of age. During the growing years of 7 – 10, kids undergo a major growth spurt that goes hand in hand with the eruptive pattern of their teeth and development of jaws. An orthodontist specializes in the growth and development of teeth and jaws and can best determine if your child is a candidate for treatment and the optimum time to begin treatment if they can follow a child’s development from an early age. Intervening at the correct time, based on your child’s individual growth pattern, can prevent more long-term or difficult treatment later on if potential problems are addressed sooner. Be on the lookout for orthodontic warning signs that can be found in children, teens, and adults:
Early or late loss of baby teeth or missing permanent teeth
Difficulty chewing or biting into food
Mouth breathing due to allergies or enlarged tonsils and adenoids during developmental years
Finger habits during development years
Crowded, misplaced, or blocked out teeth
Crossbite, overbite, and protruding teeth
Inability to comfortably close lips
Teeth that don’t come together
Grinding or clenching of teeth
Clicking of jaw joints and TMJ problems
If you notice any of these symptoms, we encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation to evaluate your child’s dental development which will enable you to determine if they are a candidate for orthodontic care and when. ~Dr. Nick

Did you get braces over the summer? If so, make sure you have a braces care kit!
What is a braces care kit?
It’s a bag or pouch of stuff that they might need to keep their braces clean and comfortable during the school day. An ideal kit includes a toothbrush and toothpaste, floss or flossing picks, and maybe even a small mirror, just in case they want to check and make sure there is nothing stuck in their braces but they don’t have time to visit the bathroom before class starts. If their braces require rubber bands, a few extra bands is also a good idea, as is some of the wax we had given you (if you need more come by the office), so they can smooth over any irritating brackets or wires. This is basically everything they need to handle any problem with their braces, at least until they get home. ~Dr Nick!
