Orthodontic Treatments for Youth
When you want your child to have the most effective orthodontic care, we recommend bringing your child to the orthodontist around age 7. An early start on orthodontics can help us find treatments that are gentler and more effective for your child.
Youth orthodontics are designed to improve speech problems, prevent dental decay, and to increase good oral health. Your child can also benefit from a boost in self-confidence provided by a straight and beautiful smile!
Orthodontic Treatment for Children
Although we recommend bringing your child in to see Dr. Endrizzi around age 7 or earlier, your child may not need braces or dental devices right away. However, this first appointment allows us to get to know your child and to learn more about what your child needs.
Youth orthodontic appointments are important as we watch the progress and development as your child grows. Consistent care can help prevent serious oral health problems in the future.
Orthodontic Treatment for Teens
The teenage years are an excellent time to begin orthodontic treatment. Once your child has lost all of their baby teeth, our braces and retainers can work more efficiently and effectively. Orthodontics can keep your teen from developing:
- Crowded teeth, making brushing and flossing difficult and less effective.
- Tooth decay and gum disease, which can cause tooth loss.
- Protruding and chipped teeth, making it harder to eat.
- TMD symptoms like headaches, migraines, and facial pains.
- Speech impediments like whistling caused by misaligned teeth.
- Low self-esteem.
At Endrizzi Orthodontics, we are dedicated to giving your child or teenager an orthodontic experience with a stunning outcome. We want all of our young patients to feel confident about their appearance both during and after treatment. You can feel assured that your child can enjoy maximum oral health and function for a lifetime.
Your child or teenager is growing and developing rapidly. Our job is to take preventative measures early on to avoid major problems later. Early intervention helps us prevent future discomfort and intensive dental work.
