Improve Your Child’s Smile with Early Orthodontics

Even when your child’s teeth are still coming in, it’s a good time to be thinking about whether they can benefit from orthodontic care. The reason is that we can often reduce the need for full orthodontics or Invisalign later on with interventional orthodontics. There are several ways we can do this:

  • Space Maintainers – If your little one has lost baby teeth but their adult teeth haven’t come through yet, space maintainers will help keep the space open and prevent their other teeth from shifting. They’ll have a better chance of avoiding the need for orthodontics later on.
  • Palatal Expanders – To adjust the width of your child’s upper jaw, we can place a palatal expander. Within a few months, it will help widen their developing jaw, bringing the upper and lower jaw into alignment. Expanders can be used to correct a crossbite or teeth crowding.

For more affordable care, be sure to check out our Oasis Dental Wellness Plan that includes 10% off of orthodontic treatment.
