Each treatment tailored for you
Tailored forYour Child
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting the orthodontist at age seven. Few patients will need to begin treatment that young, but there are some who will benefit from early intervention.
When necessary, Early treatment can:
- Correct and guide the growth of your child’s jaw to help the permanent teeth come in straight
- Regulate the width of the arches
- Create more space for crowded teeth
- Eliminate the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
- Correct thumb sucking and help improve minor speech problems
Here are a few things to look for that may mean your child needs to see an orthodontist:
- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- A hard time chewing or biting food
- Mouth breathing
- Finger or thumb sucking
- Crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth
- Crowded front teeth around age seven or eight

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
