Children’s Dental Group is a Lynnwood dentist for kids providing interceptive orthodontic care among other services. Orthodontics are the best way to ensure that your child’s teeth grow in straight and stay healthy.
Orthodontic treatment is the practice of aligning teeth or problems with the bite.The goal of interceptive orthodontic treatment is to prevent a bad bite. Early orthodontic treatment is a way to map out treatment before the braces are put on, when the child is still young. A child’s first orthodontic exam should be around age 7. Bad bites that are not treated quickly can cause more damage and potential future expensive dental bills. Our Lynnwood dentist for kids will check for potential problems that show there is a need for future dental work, and allows us to catch orthodontic problems as early as possible. Interceptive orthodontics are designed to create room for crowded and erupted teeth while helping reduce the need for tooth extractions. Sometimes teeth need to be extracted first in order to place the interceptive orthodontics.
We have a wide range of orthodontics, such as regular traditional braces, Invisalign braces and clear plastic aligners. Invisalign moves the teeth into place using a series of clear plastic aligners that do not require the spacers, brackets or traditional metal hardware. Over time, teeth gently align into their required positions.Depending on the severity of the misalignment Invisalign can take a year or more. Our Lynnwood dentist for kids has been in business for over 30 years. We employ a staff of general as well as pediatric dentists. Most of our patients are under 15, but we also provide braces for adults, too. As one of the largest Denti-Cal providers in California, we’re happy to off our patients 11 different office locations.
