Orthodontic Treatments for Children and Teens

 

Your child’s journey towards a healthy, confident and beautiful smile should begin as early as age 7, before face and jaw development has finished. Subtle problems treated early in your child’s development can prevent future complications, including surgery and longer treatments. 


First Orthodontic Visit - What to expect 

1. Eliminate the need for surgery after jaw development has finished.
2. Promote the development of straight permanent teeth.
3. Prevent permanent teeth extractions due to overcrowding.
4. Improved speech.
5. Higher self-esteem.

 

Orthodontic Treatments

Our Orthodontic Treatments are tailored to the patient - including children and teens with special needs, cleft lips or cleft palates. To correct jaw growth, misaligned bite, crooked teeth and potentially harmful habits, we offer the following treatments: 

 

Braces
A quick and effective treatment for correcting a misaligned bite through the straightening and aligning of teeth. 
 
Invisalign ®/Invisalign Teen®
Custom clear removable trays used to incrementally and precisely align teeth. Unlike braces, Invisalign requires no dietary restrictions or extra steps during brushing 
 
Appliances
Removable appliances, such as retainers, best suited for minor orthodontic problems.
