Kids’ orthodontics

Kids: The right time for orthodontics

Making a big difference In little smiles!

Howdy! Your mind is probably overrun with questions:

  • At what age should I take my child to the orthodontist?
  • Does my little one really need braces right now?
  • Is this the right time for orthodontic treatment or should we wait?

As mothers themselves, Dr. Mehta and Dr. Herrera understand and appreciate a parent’s concerns and are here to answer all your questions.

The American Association of Orthodontists advises children’s first orthodontic exam should occur by age 7. If your child has recently turned seven or is older, schedule a complimentary consultation with our team today!

Dr. Mehta and Dr. Herrera believe in the uniqueness of every child and do not believe in “one size fits all”. Our pediatric orthodontists will work with YOU to personalize treatment that fits YOUR child. Our doctors treat each child as their own and will never recommend unnecessary treatment.

Most of the time, no early orthodontic treatment is necessary and all we would recommend is a follow-up visit to check the growth of the jaws and teeth, however, the only way to determine that is during a complete orthodontic consultation; come on in for a complimentary orthodontic check-up! You’ll find that our little office is actually a pretty fun place for the kids.
