If your child needs orthodontic care, you should bring him or her in to see our orthodontist, just one of whom is Dr. Pamela Abraham, at Children’s Dental Group. At our dental office in San Jose, we offer complete orthodontic services for our patients.
There are many different types of orthodontic services that can be obtained at our dental practice. As early as age 7, your child can have a complete orthodontic evaluation at our dental office in San Jose, so it can be determined whether or not they will benefit from interceptive orthodontic care. Interceptive orthodontic care is orthodontic care that a child receives when they are between the ages of seven and eleven. This treatment can involve expanding the jaws so that it can easily accommodate all permanent teeth which have yet to erupt, or other orthodontic treatment. This early treatment is considered Phase One treatment; Phase Two treatment occurs when the child is a bit older and their teens, and can receive braces. When a child has early interceptive orthodontic care, later orthodontic treatment is usually must less extensive and costly, and calls for fewer if any tooth extractions. Patients at our office can receive removable appliances that can be used to move selected teeth, hold selected teeth in place, influence the growth of jaws, and can also influence tooth eruption. Removable orthodontic appliances are often used together with fixed braces; fixed braces cannot treat all orthodontic problems. Our orthodontist will be able to identify exactly which type of treatment will work best for your child. We also offer retainers that will keep teeth in their desired position, one’s treatment with braces is completed. Patients can also receive treatment with Invisalign at our orthodontic practice.
