If you are looking to get the right type of pediatric braces for your child, you will want to come and visit us at our children’s dental practice, Children’s Dental Group. At our practice, we have over 20 expert dentists ready to help our young patients with whatever type of dental care that they need. When a child needs Norwalk pediatric braces, we offer them several different types of braces options.
At our Children’s Dental Group, we have five orthodontists on hand to help your child get their Norwalk pediatric braces. Our orthodontists are: Dr. Gabriel Mizraji; Dr. Lillian Ho; Dr. Karla Thompson; Dr. David Han; and Dr. Rita Chuang. When children are very young and need help with the proper positioning of teeth, removable appliances may be the best way to proceed. Removable appliances can move certain teeth while they hold other selected teeth in place. These appliances are used to influence the growth of jaws, and to make sure that teeth erupt in the right spot. These removable appliances can be used in conjunction with fixed appliances. Removable appliances cannot treat all different types of orthodontic problems. However, our orthodontists are very skilled in this treatment, and are often able to help our pediatric patients with removable appliances. It is important that our patients are encouraged to use these Norwalk pediatric braces correctly and on a regular basis.
In our practice, we also offer retainers which will help children make sure that their teeth stay in the proper position once they have been moved. If you do not wear retainers as a follow-up to any type of other braces care, your teeth will move back to their original positions. It is important that children are encouraged to clean their retainers after meals. Elastics are attached to braces to excerpt the proper force, so that your teeth will receive the right amount of pressure. In order for this force to remain constant and effective, elastics must be worn consistently and changed every day. If elastics are not worn properly, treatment time can take longer. At our practice we also offer Invisalign clear plastic aligners as orthodontic treatment for some of our patients.
