Early Arch Development for KidsMost children today will benefit from early treatment ages 3 to 10 to expand their dental arches for a lifetime of better health through improved airway, jaw joint health, and facial esthetics. Dr. Milligan is well trained in this and speaks on this subject to various groups. The roof of your mouth is the same bone as the floor of your nose. By expanding your dental arches, you both make more room for your teeth and expand your nasal airway. By expanding your dental arches forward, you increase your posterior airway.
Arch development and braces for adults greatly improve smiles, oral health and total body health.
Benefits of orthodontic treatmentIn addition to beautifying your smile, orthodontics can reduce your risk of decay and gum disease. Crowding and crooked teeth create tight spaces that are difficult to clean. These areas are ideal breeding grounds for harmful bacteria. Straight, evenly spaced teeth are easier to clean and less likely to trap plaque.
If you are considering early arch development to improve your child’s lifelong health, or traditional braces call (309) 663-4711 and schedule a consultation at Eastland Dental Center.

Eastland Dental Center I have been truly blessed to find such a great dental practice. I'm 61 years old and was stressed out when I had to find a new dentist. I chose Eastland Dental Center and have been blessed with Dr. Marisa Mulligan. Two crowns had fallen off and I needed to find someone to help. I was able to get in right away for an initial examination. A few days later I had my temporary crowns in and the entire process was pain free. Eastland Dental exceeded all of my expectations. Thank you doesn't seem enough to express how happy I am with them.
