A teenager suffering from off-center teeth and an underbite was brought to our state-of-the-art treatment center to correct these issues. As this is a common problem we see amongst teens in the St. Louis area, we knew that braces were the right orthodontic treatment.

After all, it’s a good idea to have your child’s braces put on during young adulthood due to aesthetic and social reasons and because adjusting the teeth is easier when the bones are not yet fully developed.

With the support of his parents, Auggie began treatment with Frost Orthodontics. They were confident that Dr. Frost and his team could effectively straighten his teeth while correcting the underbite.

Here was Auggie before starting the first phase of the treatment process…

And here is Auggie after his braces were removed…

He received outstanding results after only a year and a half, and his parents couldn’t be happier! With the underbite gone, you can see all of his beautifully straightened teeth!

Fixing dental problems is more than just ensuring your child retains their self-esteem, it can also help protect against a host of chronic health problems. For example, underbites can cause speech issues, jaw pain, headaches, and tooth decay.

Does your child have an underbite, overbite, or misaligned teeth that could lead to more than just aesthetic problems? Call our office today to schedule a free consultation! During your personalized review, we can determine if he or she is a candidate for orthodontic treatment. We will also be available to answer any of your questions before providing the cost and time estimate for your child’s specific case.

At Frost Orthodontics, we are dedicated to providing our patients with beautiful smiles and the best dental protection available. Contact our office now in St. Louis!

Recently, Dr. Frost was featured on the 18 Strong Podcast. As the 11-time Club Champion at St.Louis’ prestigious Bellerive Country Club, soon to host the 100th PGA Championship in just a couple weeks, Dr. Frost walks listeners through some very practical advice when it comes to playing your best golf. Below are some highlights from the episode.

Highlights from this Episode

  • Dr. Frost starts it off by talking about what it takes to top-level amateur golfer while juggling the responsibilities that come with running your business and raising a family. He hits on everything from his junior career, falling in and out of playing and competing, to accomplishments along the way.
  • He talks on what the majority of golfers that want to win their first club championship don’t see or realize they have to get into that position.
  • Dr. Frost discusses familiarizing yourself with the course, being ready for the mental challenge, and getting comfortable on the green.
  • There’s discussion on books and sources that give Dr. Frost the biggest inspiration and mental boost; such as the difference between “Ego” golfers and “Master” golfers and playing to play great rather than playing to not play bad.
  • Additionally, there is talk about the 100th PGA championship coming to Bellerive in a couple of weeks, the history of the club and why the PGA picked this course.
  • Dr. Frost hits on the characteristics of the course and what we are going to see, and should look out for, when the players start out there.

Young man wishing to correct the spacing of his teeth consulted with Frost Orthodontics to discuss available treatment options. Being an adult, Adam preferred an effective but discreet way to improve his smile. Dr. Frost and his team recommended using Invisalign!

To start off, Dr. Frost used the iTero scanner to make Adam’s Invisalign impressions faster, more accurate, and more comfortable. After completing the scanning process, we processed the images to give Adam a better understanding of how Invisalign would correct the gaps in his teeth.

Here was Adam before the Invisalign treatment:

…and here is Adam’s smile following the treatment:

Just look at the results after only 10 months! Adam is pleased with his new smile, all thanks to Dr. Frost and his team.

Parents sought help from Dr. Frost to correct their young daughter’s top and bottom teeth.

When Sarah arrived at Frost Orthodontics, she was suffering from severe dental crowding of the upper teeth. As this is a very common problem in children her age, we knew that braces were the right orthodontic treatment. We were prepared to provide high quality results as we have done so many times before for children and young adults all across St. Louis!

Two of her upper teeth were removed in order to establish a normal bite and to better align the teeth. Braces were then applied and well-maintained over the course of her treatment, which lasted little more than a year and a half.

Here was Sarah before starting treatment:

What a result! Sarah is very happy with her newly transformed smile, and all thanks to her parents seeking help from Dr. Frost early on.

Early intervention is important when making the decision to fix your child’s teeth. A straight smile not only looks nice, which can help boost your child’s self esteem, it also makes it easier to take care of them.

There’s a reason why braces have always been associated with early teen years (sometimes even younger and younger). This is because children and young adults are in the optimal braces stage due to the fact that they are still growing. Your child should be brought in around this age because their jawbones are softer and more malleable, often requiring less time to straighten teeth than older individuals.

Correct your child’s smile now so they won’t have to worry about issues down the line, such as worsening dental crowding, gum disease, early loss of teeth, and more. Now is the time to contact our office and schedule a free orthodontic consultation with Dr. Frost and his team. After examining your child’s unique situation, we will be able to determine whether the child is a good candidate for orthodontic treatment, as well as provide a time and cost estimate.

Parents who were concerned with their daughter’s deep overbite and misaligned teeth took the 12 year old girl to Frost Orthodontics in Creve Coeur. They were confident that Dr. Frost and his staff could effectively straighten Lee Anna’s teeth while correcting other aesthetic problems.

After examination and cultivating the appropriate records, braces were the agreed upon method. With the support of her parents, Lee Anna began treatment on the upper teeth to help take care of the deep overbite. Then, after about three months, the lower braces were placed.

Once both the upper and lower teeth were aligned, Lee Anna wore rubber bands to help reduce her overbite. Over the course of 24 months of orthodontic treatment, her teeth were becoming straighter and straighter!

Here was Lee Anna’s teeth before starting treatment:

…and here is Lee Anna’s smile following the treatment:

Lee Anna received excellent results! She is a happy young lady with a completely transformed, dazzling smile, thanks to Dr. Frost and his team!

protect-your-teeth-with-custom-fit-mouthguard-612x252.jpg

 

For all types of sports, athletes depend on mouthguards to protect their teeth. Whether you’re playing basketball or a high contact sport like football, a mouthguard is a good investment. However, many athletes choose standard mouthguards they can boil and bite to fit to their mouth, and while they work well if you’re on a budget, they don’t offer the same benefits as a custom mouthguard.

Here are some reasons a custom fit mouthguard provides you an advantage as an athlete and an individual looking to protect their teeth.

More Comfort

The problem with a mouthguard you form fit at home is that it might fit better than a standard guard you simply take off the shelf and wear, but it still may not fit as well as custom fit mouthguards that a dental professional can fit for you in an office.

Moreover, the process involved in creating a boil and bite mouthguard uses thermoplastic materials that may thin out, compromising the protection the mouthguard is designed to provide as you fit it to your teeth. A custom fit mouthguard doesn’t have the same problems.

Better Oxygen Flow

Maximizing your breathing is important to every athlete regardless if your sport requires endurance fitness like soccer or short bursts of energy like football. Wearing a mouthguard custom fit to your tooth structure will help you breathe better than a standard mouthguard or a boil and bite guard because it’s designed to protect your teeth, not constrict your activity.

Customized for the Sport

While many mouthguards protect the top teeth only, a custom fit mouthguard a dentist fits to your bite can also provide a guard for your lower teeth. Depending on the sport, it might be necessary to protect the lower and upper teeth. Additionally, if you have braces or other dental appliance on your lower teeth, a mouthguard on your lower jaw might be necessary.

A dental professional such as an orthodontist or dentist will be able to talk to you about the options and determine what’s best for your sport.

Can Work with Braces

Unlike boil and bite mouthguards, a custom fit mouthguard an orthodontist can fit to your individual mouth can be fitted for athletes with braces.

More Durable

Thermoplastic materials are great if you want a quick mouthguard that fits your teeth to a point, but because of the heating process the materials go through, the materials are not as strong or durable. A custom fit mouthguard made by a dental professional uses the highest quality materials that are strong and long-lasting, providing the best protection today’s technology can provide.

Athletes on the go who make an investment in a custom fitted mouthguard know the value of what they’re getting. Protect your teeth and worry less about – contact Dr. Frost today at (314) 567-1888 for your consultation.

Parents concerned with son’s underbite and spacing of teeth. After their visit to Frost Orthodontics, Frank (age 8) and his parents were confident Dr. Frost would be able to help correct the troubles.
When it came to Frank’s underbite, it was important to make sure that was corrected right away. Children will typically have an easier time with the process of correcting an underbite since their bones are not fully developed. (The teeth and bones are then more easily manipulated with the use of braces.)
Here was Frank before starting the first phase of the treatment process:

…and after his braces were removed:

Frank received outstanding results! You can see how nice his smile looks and the underbite is gone! Currently, Frank is in the second phase of his treatment. Please check back later to see the end result of his beautiful smile.
