A Proactive Approach To Achieving A Healthy Smile
Child and Teen Orthodontics - Colorado Springs
Early treatment for crooked teeth or a misaligned bite is critical to your child's oral health. Orthodontic problems can cause facial disfigurement, prevent the development of normal mouth tissue, adversely affect speaking and chewing, and impair self-esteem. Your child's health and well-being are important to us, which is why we offer a wide range of child and teen orthodontic treatments at our Colorado Springs facility. We will work to ensure that your child develops a spectacularly straight, healthy, and beautiful smile that radiates confidence as he or she grows.
Recognizing That Your Child Needs Orthodontic Intervention
Orthodontic treatment in the early stages of development can dramatically reduce your child's risk for impacted teeth, cavities, gum infections, and other conditions that could require more invasive dental treatment or surgery. We recommend that your child has an initial orthodontic evaluation at the age of seven so that Dr. Gaworski can detect dental problems that may propose orthodontic problems later in life. Although many conditions may be unrecognizable by a patient, our team has years of experience identifying potential dental issues and recommending optimal treatment plans to prevent damage.
If your child's smile hasn't reached the stage of needing orthodontic intervention, our smile specialists will monitor your child's development and determine the ideal time to initiate orthodontic treatment.
An In-depth Look at Child and Teen Orthodontics in Colorado Springs
At the practice of Dr. Matt Gaworski, we change lives by transforming smiles into beautiful pieces of art. Our team works in unison to help our patients achieve smiles that they can be proud to display to the world. Because your child's teeth, gums, and jaw will change as he or she develops into a young adult, it is important that you initially seek treatment when your child turns seven. If corrective orthodontic assistance is needed, we generally recommend that patients between the ages of 10 and 13 utilize traditional braces, invisible braces, retainers, or other oral appliances to straighten their teeth. Our team of dental care professionals will work with you to formulate a treatment plan that will help you achieve excellent results.
For children and adolescents, a confident smile is a critical part of developing a healthy, positive self-image. Dr. Matt Gaworski understands the peer pressure that children face, which is why he is proud to offer several styles of braces that work to help your child achieve the eye-catching, confident smile that he or she deserves. Orthodontic treatment will straighten your child's smile and help to prevent decay and periodontal (gum) disease.
Benefits of Child and Teen Orthodontics
With early orthodontic treatment, we can:
- Trim down treatment time
- Provide room for crowded, erupting teeth
- Restore symmetry and aesthetic to your child's face by stimulating jaw growth
- Preserve the health and structural integrity of teeth
- Minimize the risk of trauma to protruding teeth
- Reduce the need for extractions
- Conserve space for un-erupted teeth
Make Your Smile Last
We will do everything in our power to give your child the smile of his or her dreams, and with your help, we can ensure that it lasts your child's lifetime. In order for your child to maintain a healthy, confident smile, he or she must develop good oral hygiene habits such as brushing, flossing, fluoride treatments, and semi-annual dental cleanings.
