What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of poorly positioned teeth and jaws, as well as misaligned bite patterns.

Here at Lantzy Children’s Dentistry, we will keep a lookout for signs that your child might need braces. We have an excellent relationship with many orthodontists in our community and will ensure your child receives the best orthodontic treatment possible.

Early Prevention

Our teams understand how important early prevention is for children. The American Association of Orthodontics suggests that children visit an orthodontist by age 7, and we agree with that suggestion. Early evaluation can help minimize the treatment necessary and can prevent any orthodontic issues from becoming more complex.

Why Should You Invest in Orthodontic Treatment for Your Child?

Orthodontic treatment is a part of great dental care, which is why our Lantzy Children’s Dentistry team recommends and trusts the best orthodontists in the area. We can help you evaluate your child’s smile to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary. This treatment can improve the aesthetic, health and longevity of your child’s smile.

Remember: Straight Teeth are Healthy Teeth

When your teeth are aligned correctly, it makes good oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing, much easier to achieve.

A Beautiful Smile Builds Confidence and Self Esteem

When your child has confidence behind their smile, it truly can light up a room. When your child gets orthodontic treatment and achieves the smile they’ve always dreamed of, you will see their confidence grow to new levels. 

Untreated Oral Issues Can Cause More Damage

Does your child have a misaligned bite? This could mean that your child has issues deeper than just a cavity. This means the problem is extended into their jaws. Having poorly aligned jaws can cause all kinds of problems: headaches, TMJ syndrome, and it can even make it hard for them to eat.
