Pediatric dental braces options
What types of orthodontic services are available for children?
We have a wide range of treatments for children to consider when realigning their teeth. These include:
- Traditional metal braces. Metal brackets are placed on each tooth and then connected with a wire. The wire is tightened over time to gradually move the teeth into place over several months.
- Ceramic braces. These look like traditional metal braces, but the brackets are clear ceramic material. That makes them less noticeable on the teeth.
- Invisalign. There are no metal brackets or wires when using clear aligners such as Invisalign. Instead, a series of clear plastic aligners are custom-made to fit your child’s teeth. The aligners are worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next set in the series until the desired results are achieved.
- Self-ligating braces. These work like traditional braces but don’t require rubber bands to hold the wire in place. That can make them more comfortable for some children.
What is the process for getting pediatric dental braces?
The first step is to schedule a consultation with our team. During this consultation, we will examine your child’s teeth and talk to you about your child’s specific needs and goals. We will then develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your child.
If braces are recommended, we will go over all the different types of braces that are available and help you choose the best option for your child.
