At Bright Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we want to be your trusted go-to for all your child’s smile needs. That’s why we’re so excited to offer comprehensive orthodontics in addition to our dental treatments. We are committed to helping kids achieve beautiful, healthy smiles with high quality, personalized orthodontic care.
When it comes to teeth straightening, braces are a tried-and-true method for getting smiles to their perfect positions. We offer two types of braces: high-grade metal braces as well as subtle ceramic braces made with clear material. Whichever option you decide is right for your child, know that the braces of today are not only sleeker but more comfortable than ever before. Braces are a great solution for even the most severe orthodontic cases.
Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to correct the position of teeth without the need for any noticeable brackets or wires. Instead, it’s a clear aligner therapy that uses a series of custom, plastic aligners to gently push teeth into place. Invisalign is a popular choice for patients with minor or moderate misalignment, and those who prefer a more discreet treatment.
Just like with other aspects of dental care, the sooner potential orthodontic problems are taken care of, the better. With early treatment in the form of removable or fixed oral appliances, we can address any possible issues with crowding or bite alignment before your child’s permanent teeth come in to minimize the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment, and even the need for tooth extractions, in the future.
Since teeth are constantly shifting over time, an essential part of orthodontic treatment is the retention phase. When your child wears their retainers, they’re maintaining all that hard work they just went through to straighten their smile! We provide removable retainers (both metal and clear) as well as fixed, or bonded, retainers that are placed behind the lower teeth.
