Pediatric dentists are trained to recognize orthodontic problems as they arise. Sometimes these problems are severe and require an early evaluation by an orthodontist. Many times, orthodontic therapy can be deferred until all the permanent teeth have erupted.
We want you and your child to feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire orthodontic experience, so our practice is dedicated to making sure that your child receives the quality care they deserve.
When Does My Child Need Braces?
We will monitor your child’s growth at every six-month checkup and refer them to an orthodontist when the timing is right.
Caring for your braces:
It is imperative that braces be kept clean; however, it is very difficult to brush well around orthodontic appliances. Proper time and technique are crucial to prevent cavities during orthodontic treatment. We will discuss this and explain proper techniques with your child during their orthodontic experience.
