What is a Guided Eruption Device?

added on: November 30, 2022
My Rivertown Dentist in Madison

There are many unique and innovative ways we help patients of all ages at My Rivertown Dentist. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Ashley Lee, we take dentistry to the next level, going beyond routine cleanings and checkups for full-body health you won’t find anywhere else.

One of the treatments that patients are raving about is helping to fix orthodontic problems before starting with an early intervention using a guided eruption device. What does this mean for you and your family? Read on to learn more.

Helping Children Live Healthier Lives

Dr. Lee is all about showing you different ways to address your child’s oral and overall health through unique partnerships with The Institute for Craniofacial Medicine and Vivos Therapeutics

She also relies on guided eruption devices to help a young child transition from baby teeth (milk teeth) to adult smiles. When this happens, crowding and bite issues can start to form. It’s actually more common than you think at this critical time in your little one’s dental development. Around ages seven through 10 is when it’s best to talk with My Rivertown Dentist to learn more about your options.

Save Money and Feel Happy

Eruption guidance is a straightforward alternative to what can turn into a more costly first phase of orthodontic treatment. A special appliance can be customized for your child to help reduce crowding and give them teeth that are straighter and easier to maintain throughout their lives.

Understanding the Benefits of Eruption Guidance

At My Rivertown Dentist, we’ve successfully helped families with eruption guidance that provides so many incredible benefits, including:

  • Ensuring permanent teeth don’t grow irregularly
  • Help prevent abnormal root shortening in permanent teeth
  • Keeping gum recession from occurring
  • Reducing the need for more in-depth orthodontic treatments later in life

Is your child between the ages of six and eight? Now is an excellent time to talk about a one-on-one, hassle-free consultation and a conversation to learn more about your options.

Are you interested in giving your child the perfect smile and unmatched oral health? It’s time to book an appointment and get the ball rolling. We’re here to help you get the care you need and deserve courtesy of a team who’s on your side every step of the way.
