Orthodontics for Children
Children are our special guests. With the proper dental care, children today can expect to have healthy, beautiful smiles for a lifetime. We provide an early childhood orthodontic evaluation for each child beginning around age eight. Many orthodontic conditions are easier to address while children are still developing.
Space maintainers and palatal expanders allow us to guide children’s bone development while they are still growing. Use of these early childhood orthodontic treatments can eliminate the need for orthodontic extractions in the future and may reduce the length of secondary orthodontic treatment during their teen years.
