Do You Need a Pediatric Orthodontist?

You probably know that it’s never too late to begin orthodontic treatment — but when it comes to your youngster’s teeth, did you know that earlier may be better than later? According to the American Association of Orthodontists, kids should have an initial orthodontic screening at age seven. But it’s important to recognize that early evaluation isn’t necessarily followed by early treatment. In fact, in most cases, if orthodontic work is needed, we simply monitor your child’s growth patterns until we see that it’s time for treatment to begin. This gives us an opportunity to get the best results in the most efficient way and to help prevent future problems.

At The Brace Place, we provide complimentary, no-obligation Smile Assessments for you to meet our team and get a recommended treatment plan for your child. You can also learn about the flexible payment options we offer to make our services accessible for everyone.

Our Orthodontics for Children

Although every child’s development is different, in most kids the first adult molars have typically started to emerge by around age six. This, along with other developmental markers, lets us get a handle on the basic alignment of the teeth, from front to back and side to side. When you bring your child in, we will evaluate their bite and make sure there’s enough room in their mouth for teeth to erupt and for the arch to develop—if not, we’ll work out an effective treatment plan. Children often have alignment issues, such as:

  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Extra teeth that interfere with bite
  • Missing permanent teeth
  • Ankylosed teeth (fused to the bone)
  • Jaw growth problems or crowded teeth

We offer early treatment for these issues before continuing with braces for your child. Treatment for alignment problems include spacers, retainers, and treatments for issues with tooth and jaw growth.
