Early Orthodontic Treatment Can Pay Big Dividends For Your Child

As your child grows up, their jaw is continuing to develop as well. For many children, this is the point where they begin to show orthodontic problems. If you bring your child in for an orthodontic consultation at around age 6 or 7, Dr. Kirchner can check their jaw development and make recommendations as necessary. Palatal expanders can be used to gently push their jaw outward to make room for their adult teeth.

At this age, your child will likely have both baby teeth and adult teeth. If necessary, we can place space maintainers where they’ve lost baby teeth and their adult teeth haven’t yet emerged. This intervention will allow the adult teeth plenty of room to come through and help avoid orthodontic problems down the road.

Discover Our Orthodontic Options

If your child does need full orthodontic treatment, we offer you several options, including:

  • Invisalign – This discreet orthodontic system uses a series of clear plastic teeth aligners rather than metal brackets and wires. Teens like this treatment because it is much less noticeable than braces.
  • Traditional Braces – If your child isn’t a good candidate for Invisalign, traditional braces will work to straighten their smile.
  • Clear Ceramic Braces – Rather than metal, we’ll adhere clear brackets to your child’s teeth that make their orthodontic treatment more discreet. They’ll appreciate how their braces blend in better with their smile.
