When it comes to realigning children’s teeth, we offer a variety of options. These are some examples:
Metal braces in the traditional style. Metal brackets are put on each tooth and wired together. Over several months, the wire is gradually tightened to slide the teeth into place.
Braces made of ceramic. These braces appear to be standard metal braces, but the brackets are made of translucent ceramic material. As a result, they are less visible on the teeth.
Invisalign. When using clear aligners like Invisalign, there are no metal brackets or wires. Instead, your child’s teeth are fitted with a series of clear plastic aligners. The aligners are worn for two weeks before being replaced with the following set in the series to obtain the desired outcomes.
Braces that self-ligate. These function similarly to regular braces but do not require rubber bands to keep the wire in place. Some children may find this more comfortable.
The first step is to make an appointment with our team. We will inspect your child’s teeth and talk to you about your child’s individual requirements and goals during this session. We will then create a treatment plan specifically for your child.
If braces are recommended, we will go over all of the different types of braces and assist you in selecting the best solution for your child.
