Benefits of using a pediatric orthodontist

Orthodontic treatment can benefit your children’s oral health at an early age. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, the ideal time for children to receive their first orthodontic checkup is around age seven. When children attend orthodontic checkups, you can get an idea of how well their teeth are coming in and get ahead of any developmental issues. A pediatric orthodontist has the knowledge and experience working with children to provide a safe, comfortable environment.

Two-Phase treatment

If your child needs early orthodontic treatment, we can apply a two-phase treatment to correct the problem.

  • Phase-One: This is the early orthodontic treatment, where we will focus on your child’s jaw development so it can comfortably hold permanent teeth and have a proper bite. Phase-One treatment helps encourage better jaw growth and can also help crowded teeth and overjet or protruding front teeth. Dr. Mik, our kids’ orthodontist, may suggest braces or use other orthodontic appliances, such as dental palate expanders or spacers, as part of the treatment.
  • Phase-Two: After a resting period between the two phases, we’ll begin Phase-Two treatment around adolescence, focusing on teeth alignment with braces or clear aligners.

Kids’ braces

Our kids’ orthodontist offers various types of braces for kids in Fort Worth and Crowley, Texas, including:

A common initial inquiry from parents when discussing kids’ braces is, “How much do braces cost for kids?” The cost of braces for kids fluctuates based on several factors, including the specific type of braces our family orthodontist suggests, the coverage provided by your dental insurance, and the complexity of your child’s orthodontic needs. To get an accurate estimate of the total cost of braces for kids, we recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with our kids’ orthodontist. Additionally, we provide various payment options to accommodate your financial needs.

Sometimes, kids’ braces are unnecessary to achieve results. Depending on the patient’s initial condition, we have treatment plans to help align teeth without using braces.
