Orthodontic Treatment for Children of All Ages

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that corrects alignment issues affecting the jaws and teeth. The most common issues that braces can address include crooked teeth, crowding, bite issues, and more. At Island Breeze Orthodontics, our dentists will perform thorough dental examinations to determine whether your child needs orthodontic treatment, at any age. We provide the following orthodontic solutions:

  • Ceramic Braces
  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • Phase I & II Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatments length will vary based on your child's unique needs, response to treatment, and level of intervention required. We'll provide you with insight into your various treatment options and an estimate of how long their orthodontic process will take.

Traditional Braces for Children in Dickson

Traditional metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment we have today. These braces are made of metal brackets, rubber bands, and an arch wire that helps to align your child's jaws and teeth. Our team will use braces to help correct mild to complex issues such as bite issues and crooked teeth.

Our dentist will bond the metal brackets to the enamel surface with dental cement and connect them using an arch wire. Metal braces will need routine adjustments by our dentist to gradually move the jaws and teeth into their ideal position. With the modern dental technology that we use, our metal braces are more comfortable and sleeker than ever.

Ceramic Braces for Improved Aesthetics

Just like traditional metal braces, ceramic braces also have brackets and wires. However, they use tooth-colored or clear materials that blend seamlessly into your child's smile. We have modern ceramic braces that are durable and strong and can help treat minor to complex orthodontic problems.

Exceptional Phase I Orthodontics

braces for Children in DicksonPhase I orthodontics is designed to address developing orthodontic issues in younger children to reduce the need for advanced orthodontics as their jaws develop. By intervening at an early age, Phase I may help children avoid more involved treatments like headgear when they're older, and could also shorten the amount of time they'll need to wear braces as a teen. Our dentist will work closely with you and your child to create a customized dental treatment plan based on their unique health and goals.

Orthodontic treatments that we may suggest for Phase I treatment include spacers, palate expanders or serial extractions of baby teeth. Our friendly team will monitor the treatment and adjust as required to promote your child's progress and improve their chances of a straightforward and successful treatment later on.

Reasons Your Child May Need Braces

If you think your child requires braces, you should make an appointment with our dentist to discuss your concerns and choose the right orthodontic treatment that caters to their unique smile. Your child may require braces if they experience the following dental issues:

  • Early loss of their primary teeth
  • Difficulty biting and chewing food
  • Speech difficulties
  • Thumb sucking
  • Disproportionate jaw
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

What Is the Best Age for Braces?

With braces, there is no fixed age to get them. Our orthodontist will decide on a case-by-case basis about the right time to start treatment. Usually, braces can be given to children between ages 9-14 since they have some permanent teeth at this age and have lost their primary teeth.

Our team recommends that children are screened at age seven since issues like malocclusion and overcrowding can be detected even at an early age. Furthermore, starting dental checkups early gives us adequate time to monitor issues as they develop and begin treatment at the most advantageous point.
