Pediatric Orthodontics for Children and Teenagers in Pico Rivera, CA

A pediatric orthodontist can precisely adjust the alignment of your child’s teeth and jaws, which can enhance their oral health as well as their appearance. The potential advantages of orthodontic treatment include improved biting and chewing function, lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease, straighter teeth, and an aesthetically pleasing smile.

The American Association of Orthodontists® recommends an initial orthodontic screening by age seven. When orthodontic issues are identified early, they can often be addressed before they progress and become more serious, which can ultimately reduce the overall treatment time and cost. A Kids Dentist offers the latest innovations in pediatric orthodontics—including braces, clear brackets, and Invisalign® for kids—in Pico Rivera, California.

The Benefits of Pediatric Orthodontics

By starting orthodontic treatment before your child’s teeth have fully erupted, our pediatric orthodontist can guide the positioning of their teeth and address any issues at the earliest possible stage. For instance, our orthodontist may suggest a fixed or removable orthodontic appliance to help:

  • Preserve space for teeth that have not yet moved through the gum line
  • Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
  • Guide jaw growth to optimize facial symmetry
  • Eliminate the need for tooth extraction

The skilled and experienced pediatric orthodontist at A Kids Dentist can determine whether orthodontic treatment is appropriate for your child and, if so, create a personalized treatment plan to help ensure the best possible results.
