Along with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that a child receives their first orthodontic screening by age 7. This is because most children have lost most of their primary (baby) teeth by this age, and several permanent (adult) teeth have erupted. This allows us to evaluate their orthodontic condition effectively.
It is important to have your child examined by an orthodontic professional because it can be difficult for parents to assess their children’s orthodontic needs. Even if the teeth appear straight, there may be underlying issues such as impacted teeth, jaw alignment problems, or bite issues.
Left untreated, these underlying issues can cause more serious problems down the road. In addition, when children are still growing, early detection and preventative measures make future treatment significantly easier, more efficient, and more cost-effective.
A healthy, beautiful smile gives children and teens a huge step up in life. A confident smile is something that they can take with them wherever they go.
We offer a variety of treatment options for children and teens. Whether it is traditional braces, clear braces, or Invisalign Teen, we will find the right treatment for their unique smile!
Genetics and poor oral habits such as thumb sucking may cause bite abnormalities. So, in addition to straightening teeth, we’ll ensure your child has a strong and healthy bite.
We’re parents too! We will treat your child like they are one of our own, with compassion, respect, and outstanding care.
At Southside Orthodontics, we promise to give your child the care and attention they deserve. We will spend time getting to know your child and their unique orthodontic needs. No two children are alike, and neither are their cases.
We know that the experience children have in our office will form their opinions of dental care for life. So we take that responsibility seriously. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure a comfortable, fun, and inviting environment for our youngest patients.
We’ve made it our mission to debunk the myth that dentists are scary, one happy patient at a time!
