Are you thinking that it is time that your child is seen by an orthodontist? If so, you will do well to bring your child to our Children’s Dental Group where we have many orthodontists who are dedicated to helping children with pediatric orthodontic care. If your child needs South Gate kids braces, our orthodontists will be able to examine their particular situation and let them know what types of pediatric braces are offered to help them meet their orthodontic goals.
At our Children’s Dental Group, our pediatric orthodontists are: Dr. Gabriel Mizraji; Dr. Lillian Ho; Dr. Karla Thompson; Dr. David Han; and Dr. Rita Chuang. We also have a large number of pediatric dentists on hand to help your child with any pediatric dental care that he or she may need. At our practice, children are able to get pediatric orthodontic care which will help them have more attractive and healthier teeth for a lifetime. Having a beautiful smile is not only important so that your child’s smile will look great; if your child’s teeth are crowded, they will be very difficult to brush and floss as they get older, and may contribute to your child developing gum disease at some point in his or her life. When children get pediatric braces at our practice, there are some different braces solutions that can be used. After meeting with our pediatric orthodontist, you will be advised of the South Gate kids braces options that will work best in your child’s particular situation.
At our practice, young children are able to get removable appliances. These removable appliances can be helpful in making sure that certain teeth do not move while other teeth do move into other places. These appliances can also be very helpful in making sure that spaces are left to allow permanent teeth to be able to erupt in the correct place. These removable appliances can also help affect the growth of a child’s jaw so that it will be able to fully accommodate all teeth as they come in. This type of interceptive orthodontic care can greatly reduce the need for orthodontic care as your child becomes a teen. It will also help keep tooth extractions to a minimum, later on. For teens we also can offer Invisalign braces as a way to invisibly move their teeth into the proper location.
