Carson pediatric orthodontics is a sector of dentistry involving treatment of misaligned teeth and facial development using a variety of methods.
Patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment. However, our Carson orthodontics specializes in pediatric braces and orthodontics. After an initial exam and consultation if your child is around the age of 7, our Carson pedodontist will make recommendations as the most appropriate treatment for your child’s unique situation. At Carson pediatric orthodontics we offer several solutions if your child needs braces. Metal braces are the most common and are made of stainless steel. Today metal braces are much smaller, more comfortable, and much more attractive. Metal braces enable your child to dress up their braces with different color elastics that can be changed at each appointment.

Clear braces are another option for pediatric orthodontics at our Children’s Dental group of Carson office. Clear braces are translucent tooth colored material which is difficult to see on the teeth unless you are very close to the patient. The only drawback to the clear braces is that they are more fragile and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits. At Carson pediatric orthodontist office retainers are an option for our pediatric patients. Retainers are generally worn after removal of orthodontics. We will monitor retention for a period of 12-18 months. If you believe your child needs a visit to the orthodontist, call our Carson pediatric dental office for their next appointment.
