Does Your Child Need Braces?
Every child’s needs are unique. At Fredericksburg Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on personalized care. When you and your child arrive for their consultation, we’ll examine their teeth and jaw development. We may also ask about genetic concerns. The most common reasons we treat kids with braces are to:
- Simplify future treatment: Your child’s teeth will continue to grow into their late teens. Getting a few brackets on problem areas now can reduce the cost of comprehensive treatment later.
- Mitigate potential issues: Braces can alleviate many orthodontic concerns with tooth or jaw growth. Fixing alignment problems can make eating, speaking and brushing teeth easier for your child.
- Boost self-esteem: Ease the growing pains with a smile your child can be proud of! We help you find an effective, comfortable and discreet treatment method.
Braces Options for Kids’ Teeth
As a tried-and-true orthodontic treatment, braces now have many different looks! You have various options for kids’ braces, depending on your child’s visibility preferences. We understand that every family will have different needs, so we offer the following types of braces:
- Traditional: Metal braces are a time-tested favorite for kids and adults. Your child can even personalize with fun elastic colors!
- Ceramic: Ceramic braces use a clear bracket material to look less noticeable. This method has the same effectiveness as traditional braces with a more discreet appearance.
- Iconix: Like ceramic braces, Iconix is a cosmetic alternative to traditional brackets. Iconix uses champagne-colored brackets and gold archwires.
- Lingual: Lingual braces are a nearly invisible treatment option. These braces lay on the backside of each tooth to straighten and adjust your teeth.
If your child is interested in Invisalign®, we also offer Invisalign First® and Invisalign Teen®!
