At Children’s Dental Group, we correct crooked or misaligned teeth using orthodontics and provide patients with general and cosmetic dentistry. Orthodontic treatment is the practice of aligning teeth, and malocclusions are known as bad bites or problems with the bite. Our Norwalk pediatric braces are done in a relaxing, fun environment so that kids aren’t anxious coming in for their appointments.
A child’s first orthodontic exam should be no later than age 7. The teeth and gums need to be healthy and in good shape before we recommend the right kind of braces. For kids, it is important to prevent future problems and for your child to receive early interceptive care if needed. Interceptive orthodontics allows us to create room for crowded and erupted teeth and helps reduce the need for tooth extraction as well as create reduced treatment time for braces. Bad bites that are not treated soon enough can cause more damage and potential future expensive dental bills. Children should have their first orthodontic exam done as early as possible, in order to check for future problems and correct bite problems before they become more serious. Our Norwalk pediatric braces help to correct this and other issues.
The main goal of orthodontics is to prevent a bad bite. Bad bites can affect the way a person eats, chews and even smiles. If left untreated, a bad bite can result in protruding or crowded teeth and speech impediments. It’s important to take care of these problems before crowded teeth cause problems that can end up resulting in tooth decay. Untreated tooth decay may result in gum disease, bone loss and tooth loss.
