Expert Orthodontic Services We Provide
Our practice stands out for the specialized care we offer as both a pediatric and orthodontic office. The variety of skilled dental treatments allows us to offer your children customized solutions to ensure a healthier smile.
Our pediatric dentist looks for the signs of potential misalignment, determining whether your child’s dental development will lead to teeth or bite issues. Working with you and your child, we can discuss treatment options that can minimize or even prevent possible misalignment before it affects their oral health now and in the future.
Orthodontic solutions we provide at our practice include, but are not limited to:
- Traditional metal braces
- Lingual Braces
- Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Why Treating Misalignment is So Important
Teeth that grow in awkwardly or shift out of alignment require repositioning to correct these issues before serious problems develop. While patients of any age can benefit from correcting misalignment, our team focuses on children because the jaw is still growing, which makes treatment more successful with long-lasting results.
Orthodontics is essential for both the appeal and health of the smile. Misaligned teeth make it very difficult for your child or teen to clean their smile properly, and tooth decay and gum disease are much more likely to develop.
Bite issues also create problems with biting, chewing food, and speaking; several digestive and speech disorders can be caused by a bad bite.
While more common in adults, children and teenagers can also benefit from cosmetic orthodontic treatments if they only have minor malocclusions. We provide these cosmetic treatments, such as clear aligners, if they best serve your child’s alignment needs.
