Oral Habit Appliances Long Beach, CA

Poor oral habits form at an early age and can cause serious consequences for the developing teeth and jaws. Some common oral habits to identify and prevent are thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, nail biting, and mouth breathing.

Orthodontists use habit appliances and growth appliances to correct many issues, including encouraging your jaw and teeth to move into the correct position. Orthodontists often recommend growth appliances to correct improper jaw development and other issues, including crowded teeth, overbites, sleep apnea, and more.
