Crossbite Treatment in Baton Rouge, LA
A crossbite is a misalignment between the bottom and top teeth. The condition can be caused by jaw issues or teeth alignment, or a combination of both. This can affect both the back and front teeth and be perceived as an overbite condition. When left untreated, it can lead to further problems such as breathing issues which can create discomfort and distress for the patient.
Baton Rouge patients who suffer from crossbite need to find the most effective orthodontic treatment to correct the condition. Fortunately, the team at Frugé Orthodontics has the skill and experience necessary to correct this problem. Surgery, braces, retainers, and other methods such as Invisalign can be used as a course of treatment, depending on the severity of the situation.
A severe case may require surgery to adjust the jaw and allow for proper teeth alignment. Typically, a crossbite of the back teeth, or a posterior malocclusion, is more complicated and requires more rigorous treatment. Our staff can review your case and determine the best course of action to effectively correct your bite in the shortest possible amount of time.
In order to widen the jaw and allow the teeth to have space, braces, Invisalign, or retainers are commonly used. Every situation is different, and Dr. Frugé will create a custom treatment plan for each patient. You can rest assured that your treatment will be tailor-made to meet your needs, and our ongoing monitoring will ensure that everything is on the right track!
