Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics specializes in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, and many of our patients come to us to fix their teeth – from correcting an overbite to straightening crooked teeth and closing gaps between them. We understand how important straight teeth can be to a child’s self-confidence and oral health, and we can help your child achieve a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime.
Why Are Straight Teeth Important?
Bright, straight, healthy teeth are attractive. A dazzling smile boosts a person’s confidence and can affect the way they are treated and perceived by others throughout their lives. But the benefits of straight teeth go beyond the esthetic:
Gaps between teeth can lead to swollen gums and gum disease.
Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean and may lead to plaque buildup and tooth decay.
Uneven teeth wear down prematurely and can chip or break over time.
Misaligned teeth can lead to jaw pain, headaches and difficulties speaking and chewing.
Good oral health begins with proper tooth alignment, and correcting errors of dentition in childhood will lay the foundation for healthy teeth for the rest of your child’s life.
Our Orthodontic Treatments
We provide a number of treatments to correct dentition. Depending on your child’s needs, we may suggest braces and/or other orthodontic appliances like headgear, bite places or holding arches. No two children have exactly the same dental needs, and we will create a personalized treatment plan to meet the needs of your child’s oral health.
