Orthodontics for Children: Setting the Foundation for a Lifetime of Smiles

At Todd Harmon Orthodontics, we understand the importance of early intervention and the impact it can have on a child’s oral health and overall well-being. Traditional braces have evolved significantly over the years, but their fundamental goal remains unchanged: to create beautifully aligned smiles.

Braces for Kids

When your child gets braces, small metal brackets are carefully bonded to the front surface of their teeth. These brackets are connected by a wire, which exerts gentle pressure to gradually guide the teeth into their desired positions. This process allows children to achieve the confident and radiant smiles they’ve always dreamed of.

We recommend scheduling an orthodontic evaluation for your child around the age of seven. By this stage, their jaw development provides valuable insights into potential future issues that may arise. Our trained professionals can identify any concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan to address them effectively.

The decision to proceed with braces will depend on various factors, including the severity of the orthodontic issue and its underlying cause. Rest assured, our experienced team will guide you through the decision-making process, considering your child’s unique needs and providing expert recommendations.

By taking proactive steps at an early age, you can lay the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Trust Todd Harmon Orthodontics to deliver exceptional care and unparalleled results, ensuring your child’s dental journey is both successful and enjoyable. Let’s embark on this smile-transforming adventure together!
