Phase 1 Pediatric Orthodontics

It is recommended that children undergo an orthodontic consultation by the time they reach the age of 7. The reason is that dental problems can begin to form and impact their oral and facial development. With Phase 1 Orthodontics, our team can address even the slightest misalignment before it progresses further. Using various appliances, we can help ensure proper jaw growth so that it reduces the amount of time they must wear braces later on (if at all) as well as the potential of surgery.

Traditional Orthodontics

When a child or teenager requires braces to fix crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth, or a severe overbite, underbite, or crossbite, we can use traditional orthodontics. As a standard metal bracket-and-wire system, these braces help teeth move into proper alignment over time. With regular follow-up appointments to our office, our team can tighten the archwire so that your child’s smile will continue to move one step closer to completed treatment.

Clear/Ceramic Braces

As children get older, they discover that they care more about their appearance, so when learning they need braces, they might cringe at the idea of noticeable metal. Thankfully, we offer clear/ceramic braces, which work the same way as traditional orthodontics but are less noticeable. Using clear brackets, these appliances appear more discreet so that your child will feel more confident while undergoing treatment.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Mature teenagers who would rather avoid traditional braces of any kind may find Invisalign clear aligners to be a more suitable option. Made of clear, plastic materials, these customized trays apply gentle, continuous pressure to teeth, helping to move them in the right direction. With many patients completing treatment in just 12-18 months, Invisalign is often a preferred choice for teens who desire a more flexible option and faster results.

Retainers & Oral Appliances

When finished with braces, your child will enter the retention phase of treatment. This means they will be required to wear a custom-made retainer. Since teeth need time to adjust and integrate into their new location, a retainer helps to keep them in place instead of returning to their original placement. We also provide additional oral appliances should your child need assistance with their teeth and/or bite, which braces alone cannot achieve.
