Orthodontics for Children & Teens
Orthodontic treatment can begin at an early age. For children, we begin with phase 1 treatment to help guide teeth into the right position as they develop. Prior to braces, there are different ways we can help your child’s smile require less treatment down the road. By beginning orthodontic treatment early, you can save time and money in the future. Your child’s dentist can examine their smile and help determine the best treatment plan for giving them a beautiful smile as they enter their teenage years. Once phase 1 treatment is completed, your child can typically enter phase 2 treatment in their teen years, which is traditional orthodontic care.
Traditional braces are one of the best methods for aligning teeth. Proven from years of use, traditional braces allow an orthodontist to control which teeth move and when they move. By gradually shifting a patient’s teeth, your orthodontist can give you the smile you’ve always wanted! Once braces are placed, periodic visits will be scheduled for adjusting your braces in order to keep the straightening process on the right track. Once treatment is completed, a custom retainer will be made to help keep your smile straight as your teeth adjust to their new positions.
Alternative for Traditional Braces
If you are looking for a more discreet way to straighten your teeth, clear braces could be the answer! Clear braces use ceramic to replace the metal wires and brackets and work to gradually shift your teeth much like traditional braces. You can feel confident wearing clear braces while you work towards a more beautiful smile as the treatment blends in with your existing tooth color!
For both teens and adults, Invisalign has worked for millions of patients to produce proven results! Invisalign uses sets of clear aligners to move your teeth into the right position. Using digital impressions, Invisalign creates sets of clear aligners custom-made for your smile that you change out regularly as they continually align your teeth. Visits are scheduled every 6-8 weeks so your orthodontist can monitor your progress and give you new sets of aligners. Aligners can be removed for brushing, flossing and eating. Once you have worn every set of aligners, your teeth will be completely straightened. Invisalign offers a more comfortable and discreet alternative to traditional braces. Treatment time is typically less than a year!
