Certain habits such as thumb sucking and even genetics can cause orthodontic problems such as overbites, underbites, cross bites, a deep bite, a narrow arch or teeth crowding. Orthodontic treatment typically begins when children have their adult teeth and have orthodontic problems. However, interceptive orthodontics, also known as early orthodontics, is orthodontic treatment that begins before their permanent teeth erupt. Interceptive (early) orthodontics involves providing orthodontic treatment at the first sign that problems may be developing and cause problems later in life. Our West Carson orthodontist will recommend that interceptive orthodontics be performed before a child has their adult teeth. Starting orthodontic treatment before your child’s permanent teeth come in helps to prevent developmental problems from occurring later on.

Phase I orthodontic treatment (Interceptive Orthodontics) begins when the child’s jawbone is still growing because it enables easier manipulation of these bones. The growth pattern of the jaws can be manipulated and repositioned in order to allow room for new teeth to erupt properly and to correct the jaw. The majority of patients who receive interceptive orthodontics will also require phase II orthodontic treatment (placement of braces etc.). When your child receives Phase 1 (interceptive orthodontics) you could potentially save him or her from pain and lifelong occlusion or jaw problems. Phase 2 orthodontics should be shorter and less extensive because of the earlier treatment your child received. In order to determine if interceptive orthodontic treatment is appropriate for your child, we highly recommend that you make an appointment with one of our West Carson orthodontist at Children’s Dental Group.

It is generally recommended that your child be evaluated by an orthodontist as early as age 7 in order to ensure proper oral health and growth.

When was the last time your child asked, “When are we going to the dentist?” Thanks to the Children’s Dental Group of Carson your children will not only want to visit the dentist but may not want to leave.  Located in the South Bay Pavilion at 20700 Avalon Blvd, the staff love children and are trained to make them as comfortable as possible.  Upon entering the colorful reception area you will find a welcoming environment with video games, a robot ride, fun activities and movies to help make your child feel at ease.  Of course it’s not all fun and games and our West Carson pedodontists know that once a mother stops nursing and a child’s diet includes anything besides breast milk, teeth are at risk for cavities.  To evaluate the health of your child’s teeth, mouth and gums, our Carson children’s dental specialists will perform a thorough exam.  These specialists, trained in the latest digital technology, will evaluate your child’s growth to make sure their oral development is on track.

Cavity prevention is one of the main concerns and our West Carson pediatric dentists discuss the importance of healthy baby teeth with parents and their children. Baby teeth are essential for chewing, biting, speech, and appearance as well as holding space for permanent teeth so it is important to maintain a healthy diet and daily hygiene. The pediatric dentists at Carson, some on staff for over fifteen years, love working with children and have been specifically trained to help them feel safe and calm during their visits.  Some of the expert training techniques even include parental participation for the children’s added comfort.

Pediatric braces and orthodontics are also something to be addressed as children grow. Around the age of 7, the Carson pedodontist will do an exam and recommend the best treatment for your child’s unique situation. For braces, there are several options with Carson pediatric orthodontics and today’s stainless steel braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive with different color elastics that can be changed at each appointment.  Invisalign clear braces are also offered as well as retainers for after the orthodontics are removed.

Educating and involving the community is also very important to the Children’s Dental Group of Carson as they participate in local health fairs, brushing and flossing demonstrations at area elementary schools and oral healthcare presentations at Children’s Centers.  Winning over the Carson area and surrounding communities, Children’s Dental Group was awarded the California Legislature Certificate of Recognition, as well as many other prestigious honors.

A full range of preventive and restorative services are offered at Children’s Dental Group of Carson, as well as oral health instruction for long lasting dental health.  You owe it to yourself and your family to make your child’s next dental appointment at a Carson early dental treatment facility.
