Orthodontics for Children in<br data-lazy-src=

Orthodontic treatment can do much more for your child than simply straighten their teethit can improve their oral health, help them brush and floss more effectively, increase their self-confidence, and even enjoy a higher quality of life as they grow up! Here at Park Place Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer the experienced services of orthodontist and pediatric dentist Dr. Shen so that our special patients won’t have to go elsewhere to receive the comprehensive treatment they need. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation at our practice or if you have any questions.

In-Practice Services

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, screening at an early ensures the greatest potential for results and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur no later than age 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. Though metal braces are most often associated with orthodontic treatment, we offer many other effective options that can work wonders for growing teeth and accommodate every child’s lifestyle! Our team will be happy to review them with you in greater detail during your first visit so that we can determine the best course of action for your child.

Available Treatments

We are happy to be able to provide multiple orthodontic treatments for our teenage patients:

  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • Clear/Ceramic Braces
  • Phase 1 Orthodotnics
  • Invisalign Clear Braces
  • Dentofacial Orthopedics
  • Orthodontic appliances

This classic service is highly-reliable and works wonders for a wide variety of ages. At Park Place Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we’ll place silver brackets on your child’s teeth, and then attach orthodontic archwires over them with the help of rubber elastics. The archwires will then exert pressure at different points on the teeth, shifting them towards Dr. Shen’s designated position. Traditional braces are durable enough to stand up to your child’s active routine, and they’ll surely enjoy choosing their favorite colored rubber bands to wear, too!
