Every family wants the best for their children’s dental health. That’s why one of the most common services we provide is orthodontics for patients of all ages. While many people think of orthodontic treatment as purely cosmetic, the truth is that straightening your teeth offers a wide range of benefits that go far beyond just improving your smile’s appearance. If your child is at least 7 years old, we encourage you to schedule an orthodontic checkup. 

When you invest in orthodontic treatment for your child, you’re setting them up for a lifetime of good dental health and function. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and will reduce their risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. In addition, a misaligned bite can cause uneven wear on teeth, leading to premature erosion and potential jaw problems such as TMJ disorders. 

By addressing these issues early on with our orthodontic solutions, you can help your child avoid more serious and complex dental problems in the future. Watch this helpful video by the American Dental Association on what exactly is orthodontics:
