Are you or your child suffering from a bad bite? We can help. Our talented, dedicated team is experienced in treating orthodontic problems in patients of all ages. We have been serving the Boca Raton, FL community for more than 40 years and have treated patients from ages 2 to 86! Regardless of your circumstance, we can help you get the care you need. If your bite is causing discomfort or other orthodontic issues, we can help you feel better.
Our team offers preventive orthodontic services to children beginning at about age 7. This is the age where your child’s jaw and bite are really starting to develop. At this age, we can monitor your child’s development and intervene as necessary in order to normalize the growth. If you are noticing abnormalities in your child’s bite, please contact our office right away for a consultation. The sooner you get your child in to see our orthodontist, the better chance we have of solving his or her issues before the end of the development period.
Your Child’s First Orthodontic Appointment
When you bring your child in for their first appointment, they will be greeted by our friendly staff and made comfortable in our office. We will take some images of your child’s jaw and teeth and do a visual examination. This will help us determine what work, if any, is necessary. These visits are usually low-key and will help get both you and your child acclimated to how our office works and how we can help you.
If problems are found (and you may have already noticed some!), we can utilize oral appliance therapy to correct your child’s bite. We can use occlusal splints, expanders, space maintainers, and more to normalize your child’s bite. This will help prevent other major orthodontic issues as well as help braces (if needed) work more efficiently in the future.
If you or your child have a bad bite and are past the development stage, we can help adjust your jaw with any of our orthodontic techniques. We can help you determine which orthodontic solution may be right for your specific situation. Schedule your free consultation to learn more about how our services can help you.
