BRACES IN CEDAR RAPIDS
Braces can create beautiful, broad smiles for people of all ages. Dr. McLaughlin has been highly trained in neuromuscular orthodontics and functional philosophies of orthodontics. That means he plans for more than just a pretty smile when the braces come off. The arches are developed and widened to make room for all of the permanent teeth. This virtually eliminates the need for extractions. The end result is a big, beautiful, and healthy smile.
Our children and adults deserve to have this type of smile as well as healthy jaw joints. Many people suffer from jaw pain (TMD) or related problems. This can often be helped with the proper development of the jaw. Many people also have a narrow jaw, deep overbites, and a lower jaw that is pushed back too far.
Some of the issues braces can solve:
- Earaches or ringing of the ears
- Clicking joints
- Limited jaw movement
- Neck or facial pain
Nobody wants to have to deal with this type of pain every day. Dr. McLaughlin, Dr. Mueller, and their team are very passionate about helping you with your pain. Often, braces can be a big part of this. Most facial development occurs before the age of 12. So, it’s important to get started as early as possible to get ideal results. Dr. McLaughlin has completed hundreds of hours of continuing education in facial development, orthodontics, and TMJ disorders. Most importantly, he wants to help.
FANTASTIC! They helped my 2 month old with his tongue, lip, cheek ties, and immediately made a huge difference in all the areas he was struggling. He is even happier and far less fussy- he’s finally slept good for the first time in his short 11 weeks of life! Couldn’t be happier I was referred to them, and for their help with my little guy!
This is a great dental office. Everyone is very friendly and professional. They take the time to explain everything and don’t make me feel rushed when I have questions. Dr. Nelson and her team get an A+.
This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at the dentist or doctor. I haven’t been to the dentist in 7 years, largely due to a bad experience. Haley (hygienist) was super knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all of my questions. She even helped me develop a plan to get my dental health where it needs to be in the future. Blaine (dentist) was friendly and knowledgeable as well! I highly recommend this office. I never thought I would be happy walking out of a dentist office. Thank You Dental Touch!
