Benefits of using a kids orthodontist
The first visit to an orthodontist is a huge milestone in your child’s life. When it’s time for this appointment, it’s important to find a childrens orthodontist who will cater to your child’s specific needs. Some benefits of choosing our childrens orthodontists at Reflections Orthodontics include:
- Calmer visits: Visiting the orthodontist can be a source of stress for some kids, especially if it’s their first time in our office. Our pediatric orthodontists in Clarksville and Pleasant View receive training on how to acknowledge and address any concerns a young patient may have. With this training, we can create a comfortable environment, and your children will be less nervous the next time they visit our offices.
- Specialized training: Our pediatric orthodontists have experience dealing with younger jaws and teeth, meaning they can effectively find potential issues and offer comfortable solutions for your child.
- Improve oral health: Common habits in younger children, such as thumb sucking, can lead to dental issues later in life. Our pediatric orthodontists can help your child overcome these habits to improve their dental health.
- A healthy smile at all stages: Your child’s jaw goes through many changes as they age. Our pediatric orthodontists are familiar with all growth stages and can provide the best possible care for your child.
Our orthodontist services for kids
Our orthodontists will work with your child to limit habits such as extended pacifier use or thumb sucking. If needed, we may insert a space maintainer to prevent your child’s teeth from moving into unwanted areas.
Your child may begin treatment to correct issues such as crossbites by receiving braces or other dental appliances.
The main goal of this stage is to straighten the teeth and improve the appearance of your child’s smile. We offer treatment options such as braces and Invisalign® to enhance your child’s smile.
