Orthodontics for Children
At K Dental, we believe that early orthodontic intervention can be beneficial to the future of a child’s oral health. By guiding the teeth to erupt in the correct alignment from the start, we set your child on a path to excellent oral health, and limit further orthodontic treatment in the future.
Dr. K and our team also evaluate a child’s airway in relation to jaw and tooth development, as early diagnosis of airway dysfunction can make the difference in a child’s sleep patterns right through adulthood. Orthodontic treatment can help positively adjust the child’s airway, leading to healthier, more efficient breathing.
It’s becoming increasingly popular for adults to use orthodontics to correct their smiles for a variety of reasons. If you’re considering straightening your teeth, check out the ways K Dental can help.
- Invisalign – These clear aligners are custom fitted through computer technology and come in a complete series, which gradually realigns your teeth over a period of time. They are made of plastic, which is almost undetectable. No one will notice you are straightening!
- Traditional Metal Braces – Crafted from high quality stainless steel, our metal braces are smaller than their predecessors, and are typically more comfortable. They are available for either adults or children. Metal braces allow a greater range of treatment, and are suitable for complex orthodontic issues.
If you suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, orthodontic treatments may give you some much needed relief. From orthodontic appliances to braces, straightening your teeth and finding the appropriate position for your jaw and teeth can treat the discomfort of TMJ.
