Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know If My Child Needs an Orthodontist?

While it can be a challenge to notice whether or not your child may need orthodontic care because their teeth are still developing and changing rapidly, there are a few telltale signs that can indicate when your child will need orthodontic care. These signs include:

  • Misaligned jaw
  • Improper bit
  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Problems chewing or biting
  • Habits such as thumb sucking
  • Mouth breathing
  • The adult teeth that have come in appear naturally misaligned

How Long Will My Child Need Their Braces?

On average, most children can achieve a straighter smile within two years of having braces. However, the length of time your child may need braces depends on their oral condition, current teeth alignment, and how well their teeth progress every month.

Are Braces or Invisalign Better for My Child?

Both braces and Invisalign® are excellent orthodontic treatments that help children achieve straightened teeth and perfect smiles. However, each treatment has its own focus, and one may suit your child better than the other, depending on your child’s dental needs.

Traditional braces are a treatment typically recommended for children with severe misalignment. Braces can correct your bite, reduce gaps in the teeth, correct overbites, and even improve speech patterns. While braces may take several years to complete treatment, they often provide children with a new and improved smile that leads to increased self-confidence.

Invisalign is a great option for children who only have slight misalignment and do not need major oral corrections. This option is also great for children who have dental anxiety, as it allows for fewer trips to the dentist with its DIY approach to treatment. However, because of this, it’s important that your child is responsible and diligent with using and taking care of their Invisalign in order to achieve results.

How Do I Know Which Orthodontic Treatment My Child Needs?

The highly-experienced doctors at Park View PD understand that children are still in the midst of growing, and so are their teeth. With this in mind, our orthodontists get to know each patient during their consultation. By assessing their current oral condition and dental goals, they plan out each step of their treatment to ensure an improved smile.

Straight teeth are not only more attractive teeth, but they decrease the chances of a patient developing other, more serious problems. In addition, if a child is self conscious about his or her appearance due to imperfect teeth, orthodontic treatment can improve the way a child looks, feels and his or her general level of confidence.
