Metal Braces

Fixed, metal or traditional braces are the most standard way to shift teeth into their ideal location. Braces today are much smaller and much more comfortable than bulky metal braces of the past. And the wires used move teeth faster with less discomfort.

smiles for kids

Orthodontics

for kids

Knowing if your child needs to see an orthodontist can be tricky. Sometimes, signs are present such as protruding teeth, unusual spacing or crowding. Other times, your child may show signs that only an orthodontic professional can detect.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends your child have an initial orthodontic evaluation at age 7 At this age, your child’s jaws are still developing and permanent teeth are starting to emerge, making it the perfect time for a children’s orthodontist to identify orthodontic problems like protruding teeth or crowding.

Some kids may benefit from early orthodontic treatment called Two Phase Treatment to create a proper foundation for normal jaw development and eruption of permanent teeth. Read more about Two Phase Treatment here.

Dr. Thurman offers a super fun Kid’s Club for kids ages 7 and up who aren’t quite ready for treatment but who would benefit from free routine check-ups. Enroll your child in our Groovy Grins Kid’s Club!
