San Antonio Orthodontist
Dr. Daniel San Martin is Smile Structure’s very own board-certified orthodontist. Dr. San Martin delivers comprehensive orthodontics and interceptive therapies at our Northwest San Antonio location.
Braces for Children and Teens
Correcting your child’s tooth and jaw alignment can help them enjoy a healthier smile into adulthood. Did you know that crooked teeth are more prone to problems like…
- Accidental fractures, such as breaking front teeth that are “jetted-out”
- Tooth decay and gum disease, because of how difficult they are to keep clean
- Disorders of the TMJ, including headaches and migraines
- Premature enamel wear
- Speech difficulties
While some children simply inherit crooked or crowded teeth, others may be more prone to misalignments caused by thumb sucking, pacifier use, or even accidental tooth loss. Poor diet can also play a factor in improper dentition development. Fortunately, we can make it possible to correct those concerns right here in our San Antonio family dental office!
Dr. San Martin will thoroughly assess the development of your child’s dental anatomy to determine whether or not any type of interceptive care is necessary to encourage proper eruption patterns. In certain situations, it may be necessary to utilize appliances such as space maintainers or palatal expanders to accommodate proper jaw and bite development.
