Children’s Dental Group is a well known and well respected office that provides outstanding orthodontic services for kids. Our Carson children’s orthodontist is gentle and friendly, so kids love coming to see us. Our kids orthodontics are used in order to straighten teeth that are out of alignment. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in less tooth decay, cavities and other dental problems later on down the line.
The goal of braces is to correct any malocclusions or bad bites, and crooked upper or lower jaws and crowded teeth. When your kids come in to see our Carson children’s orthodontist, we will first check for malocclusions and then figure out the correct degree of alignment needed to straighten their teeth. There are also interceptive orthodontics, which are used to guide the teeth before braces are actually put on. This may be used if the patient is too young for braces yet. We will then discuss with you the different types of orthodontic services offered. We have clear braces, clear aligners, such as Invisalign, and traditional braces. All three types of braces work in the same way, and the choice depends on personal preference usually. Many kids like traditional braces because they can change the color of the rubber bands.
Invisalign braces are one of the best types of orthodontics on the market today. They’re a revolutionary new style of braces that use a series of clear plastic aligners to gently move teeth into proper position over the course of treatment. The braces are virtually invisible, and the course of treatment is about the same as traditional braces, which can take anywhere from one to two years, depending on the level of alignment needed. Invisalign can be taken out and removed for special occasions, brushing and flossing. Our Carson children’s’ orthodontist recommends leaving Invisalign in as much as possible to get the best possible results.
