Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting the alignment and position of teeth and jaws. At our practice, we offer a range of orthodontic treatment options designed to meet the unique needs of your child.

Interceptive Orthodontics: Interceptive orthodontics, also known as early treatment orthodontics, is a type of orthodontic treatment that can begin as early as age six or seven. This treatment is designed to address common dental issues such as teeth crowding, tongue thrusts, and cross-bites while your child's teeth and jaws are still in the development phase. We utilize oral appliances such as space maintainers, habit appliances, and rapid palatal expanders to treat these issues effectively.

Space Maintainers: When your child loses their baby teeth prematurely, or their permanent teeth are delayed in emerging, our pediatric dentist may recommend a space maintainer. These appliances help support the space until the gaps are filled with adult teeth and the permanent teeth come into their ideal position. We offer various types of space maintainers, including distal shoe, Nance, band and loop, and lingual holding arch, depending on your child's oral condition.

Habit Appliances: We use habit appliances to address tongue thrusts and thumb-sucking habits that can cause dental issues in children. These appliances can help break the habit and promote healthy oral habits.Rapid Palatal Expanders:Rapid palatal expanders, or RPEs, are often used to treat posterior cross-bites, a condition in which the upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. These appliances can help expand the upper jaw and correct the bite.
At our practice, we understand that orthodontic treatment can be intimidating for children. That's why we strive to create a warm, welcoming environment that puts your child at ease. Our team of dental professionals will work with you and your child to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets their unique needs and provides gentle, compassionate care throughout the treatment process.
