Orthodontics for Children

We generally recommend having your child seen by an orthodontist by the age of 7 to advise if treatment is needed. Common problems like overbites, crossbites, underbites, and crowding have generally been established by this time and the earlier the treatment, the better!

Types of Braces - Traditional Metal Braces

These are the most common type, using high-grade stainless steel. Kids love adding colored elastics!

Types of Braces - Ceramic Braces

These are made of clean materials, so they are less visible than metal braces. They tend to be used more on upper front teeth.

Types of Braces - Invisalign

Invisalign uses invisible, removable aligners to straighten teeth and are much more comfortable that traditional braces!

Types of Braces - Lingual Braces

This type of braces are hidden behind the teeth, and are completely customized to the shape of your teeth.
