Are you looking for Cleveland dentists who will look after you and your family?
When choosing your dentist it is important to consider the whole family and your personal time. While most dentists can treat children, many prefer not to. We are more than happy to treat patients of all ages. Whether they need a fissure sealant, filling, dental crown, root canal therapy or orthodontics, Redlands Gentle Dental Care offers a comprehensive range of treatments.
How old does my child need to be for an orthodontic assessment?
Redlands Gentle Dental Care recommends you bring your child in for an orthodontic assessment at around the age of seven. By bringing your child in this early, our orthodontist can determine whether or not your child will need braces.
At seven our orthodontist will also determine if early intervention orthodontics are an option. Of course not every child needs braces; however, this can be cleared up with an orthodontic assessment at an early age.
The ideal age for braces is between 10 and 14. The reason being at this age your child’s jaw is still developing and braces treatment can be quicker.
Is there an age limit for braces?
There is not. As long as your teeth and jaws are healthy you’re never too old for braces. Redlands Gentle Dental Care offers everything from traditional braces to Invisalign to provide patients with the most appropriate treatment for them.
Is Invisalign appropriate for teenagers?
Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic treatment. One of the Invisalign options is Invisalign Teen. This Invisalign treatment has compliance indicators on the aligners so you know how long you need to wear your aligners for. Invisalign is a great option for those who want to straighten their teeth but don’t want the inconvenience of traditional braces.
If you’d like to know more about what orthodontic option would work better for you or your child, feel free to call us and ask our friendly team.
