Treating Children

Orthodontics for Children

At Glass Orthodontics, we understand the importance of early interventional orthodontics for children. With early treatment, we can assess your child’s smile even before permanent teeth come in.

Helping to ensure a normal growth of your child’s bone structure and fixing imbalances in your child’s face and jaws should start early. Typically, we include two phases in this treatment beginning with the child is around 7 or 8 years old. During early treatment, we may use face masks to treat class III growth or palatal expansion devices to increase the width of the palate to increase the airway as well as correct a cross-bite. Sometimes, braces may be necessary at this age.

We promise to take every effort necessary to ensure your child is comfortable while receiving the best care possible. Contact us today for a FREE evaluation for your child.
