The answer is: Everything!
Our practice is a truly integrated multi-specialty pediatric office; both Dr. Kyle and Dr. Katie are pediatric dentists, and Dr. Katie is also an orthodontist! This means she has completed rigorous residency programs in both specialties, which allows Carousel to offer comprehensive pediatric dentistry and orthodontics in one location!
Children generally undergo an orthodontic evaluation around age 7. Because of our unique multi-specialty practice, this evaluation can coincide with your child's regular dental exam and cleaning! A valuable time saver for busy families!
What Is Interceptive Orthodontics?
Interceptive orthodontics helps deal with problems that could become more complicated and time-consuming to treat in the future, such as:
- Excessive tooth crowding
- Irregular eruption of permanent teeth
- Open bites
- Excessive overbites
For some children, taking advantage of jaw growth and early orthodontic treatment may help them have an easier and more efficient treatment when it's time to straighten their teeth in the future.
Should My Child Get Braces in Apple Valley?
