Why Putting Off Early Treatment or Phase I Treatment of Misaligned Teeth is a Bad Idea
08/27/2021

Misaligned teeth don’t always mess up a beautiful smile; some malocclusions can be more subtle, hidden behind other teeth, or they can even be endearing to some people. But even if your misaligned teeth don’t keep you from smiling, they can cause a lot of problems later on in life, which can be both expensive and painful to fix. Here at Stormberg Orthodontics, your local La Mesa orthodontics experts, we believe that everyone is entitled not only to a beautiful smile but a healthy and long-lasting smile as well. Find out why you should treat your child’s misaligned teeth early and avoid the consequences that come from a neglected smile! The American Academy of Orthodontics recommends a first check-up by the age of 7. At Stormberg Orthodontics, we offer a complimentary examination to evaluate what personal treatment your child may or may not need. Most patients are under a “wait and see” recall until all the permanent teeth have erupted.

How Can Your Oral Health Affect Your Overall Health?
06/25/2019

Typically, most people will associate poor oral hygiene and health with dental issues such as cavities and gum disease. While this isn’t wrong at all, the truth is that it can lead to problems with the rest of a person’s body as well. The mouth is essentially the window to the rest of the body; if there are any problems that are residing in the mouth, they can have just as much of an impact on the rest of the body.
