At our dental practice, Children’s Dental Group, we offer general dental and orthodontic care for both children and adults. The majority of our patients are under 15, but we also provide both adults and children with braces. If your child needs South Gate pediatric braces we hope you will come to us for treatment.
At our office we are very happy to offer Invisalign clear plastic aligners for both children and adults. All patients are welcome to come to see our orthodontist for a complimentary consultation to determine if Invisalign is a good treatment option for you. Although Invisalign cannot correct all bite situations, it can help with a great deal of bite problems. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners so no one can tell that you are wearing braces. Our orthodontist will be happy to meet with your child to see if there is any need for any type of South Gate pediatric braces. Today many children get interceptive orthodontic care between the ages of seven and 11. This type of treatment uses dental appliances to perform certain corrections to your child’s bite so that they will be able to accommodate all of their permanent teeth when they erupt. This type of treatment may focus on jaw expansion. At our dental practice we use removable appliances to either move selected teeth, hold certain teeth in place, or influence the growth of jaws. Removable appliances can also influence where a tooth erupts and are often used in conjunction with fixed appliances. At our office we also offer retainers. Retainers are used once teeth are moved into their correct position; the retainer will make sure that the teeth remain in the desired position. If a retainer is not used as instructed, teeth will move back so it is important that this treatment is complied with.
