Kids and Teen Orthodontics in Florida

Orthodontic Specialists of Florida offer kids and teen orthodontics to residents throughout the state of Florida. Orthodontics for children and teens not only give you a beautiful smile but also help you maintain healthy teeth for your lifetime.

Why Should I Consider Kids & Teen Orthodontics?

A beautiful smile can help build self-confidence, and it all starts in childhood with good dental care. Subtle problems with the jaw or teeth may appear as early as age 7. Fortunately, dental issues are easier to correct at an early age, thus reducing the risk of complications in the future. For this reason, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic check-up by age 7.

Addressing early problems with the bite or teeth offers several advantages:

  • Issues with growth can be corrected more easily and effectively (narrow palates, shifting bites, recessed chin).
  • Healthier gums help preserve both oral and overall health.
  • Having a proper bite helps maintain strong teeth, aid in chewing and enhance self-esteem.
  • Bone metabolism reaches its peak during the childhood and teen years, making treatment more efficient and successful.

If your child is experiencing difficulty with chewing or biting, jaws that make sounds or shift, a facial imbalance, or early or late loss of baby teeth, then an orthodontic evaluation can help identify and correct potential dental conditions before they cause larger health problems.

What Types of Orthodontic Treatments Are Recommended for Children and Teens?

Depending on your child’s case, treatment options may include straight wire brackets, traditional steel braces, ceramic braces, clear braces, or Invisalign® Teen.

By taking proactive steps to preserve your child’s dental health, you’ll help ensure a lifetime with a healthy, attractive smile!
