Avoid long-term dental problems
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children receive an orthodontic evaluation no later than age seven. This is because their first adult molars erupt around this age, which establishes the back bite. An orthodontic evaluation is a straightforward process. Dr. Mo will evaluate your child’s tooth development and examine the mouth for signs of crowding or space issues. An evaluation ensures that any orthodontic treatments can be recommended early enough to prevent major dental issues from occurring for your child in the future.
Early treatment for a lifetime of smiles.
Orthodontic Interceptive Care
Orthodontic interceptive care helps to guide your child’s adult teeth and it corrects any malocclusion or problems with their bite. It also helps reduce the need for tooth removal and gives your child the best possible start to life with their adult teeth. Your pediatric dentist will advise whether any orthodontic treatment is required for your child after an orthodontic evaluation. Treatments typically include space maintainers, palatal expanders, and/or braces. Any orthodontic treatments are closely monitored by our pediatric dentists to ensure the best possible solutions are available for your child for optimal results.

Benefits of Braces for Teens
When teens are faced with crooked teeth or other dental issues, it can cause a drop in self-esteem and confidence. But with regular preventive dental care and orthodontic evaluation and treatments, you can prevent serious dental problems for your child in the future. Braces are a very common orthodontic treatment for teens. They can even be used as a treatment in children as early as eight years old. Braces help guide the development of a child’s teeth and jaw. They ensure they are properly aligned, keeping your teens smiling now and tomorrow.
