Orthodontics impacts your child’s health, appearance, and more.
Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and your self-image.
If you suffer from crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth, orthodontic treatment can help.
The length of your child’s orthodontic treatment will depend on their individual plan. During your child’s consultation with Dr. Andersen, we will discuss treatment options. Once you select your child’s treatment, we will estimate its length.
There are factors that can affect the duration of your treatment. Some of these include:
- Early Orthodontic Intervention: If your child had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time you need for this treatment.
- Type of Treatment: Depending on your needs, you may have braces, elastics, or other options. Which treatment your child receives will affect its length.
- Compliance: Following our instructions will allow your child’s treatment to work more quickly.
At East Mesa Children's Dentistry & Orthodontics, we offer advanced solutions for your treatment. Depending on your needs, we may recommend:
- Traditional Braces
