If you are looking for an orthodontist who will not only provide your teen’s teeth with excellent orthodontic care, but who will help your teen get a new smile that is not only beautiful, but healthy and long-lasting, you will want to make sure that your child comes in to see our Woodside orthodontist. At our orthodontic practice we offer many different types of orthodontic care for our teen patients. Today there are many different braces options to choose from, including traditional silver braces, clear ceramic braces, and Invisalign invisible braces. Today’s silver braces are very different from the silver metal braces of the past. The bracket is so much smaller so that the braces are much more comfortable and attractive for the teen.
When your teen comes in for orthodontic care, our Woodside orthodontist will first want to perform a full exam to determine the malocclusion that needs to be corrected, and other important oral problems that need to be addressed. Our dentist will take many different pictures of your child’s mouth and teeth to help determine the best type of orthodontic treatment for your teen. Finally, a treatment recommendation will be made taking into account the type of bite correction that is needed, as well as your treatment goals for your teen. Invisalign is a very popular treatment method, and can now be used for teens who have particular smile situations. If you have a child who is between the ages of seven and eleven, he or she may benefit from interceptive orthodontics. This type of care will mean that they will need to have less extensive orthodontic care as they reach their teen years. Interceptive orthodontic care also means that patients will generally need to have fewer teeth extractions as a teen. If you would like for your teen to meet with our Woodside orthodontist regarding orthodontic care, contact us today for an appointment.
