Every child deserves a straight and healthy smile. At SLS Orthodontics, we are proud to offer comprehensive orthodontic treatment to children in Coral Springs. Depending on your child’s age and needs, we can recommend braces, habit appliances and holding appliances. Schedule a consultation with our friendly and professional team.
Braces are used to treat a variety of common childhood orthodontic issues. We recommend braces for children with crooked teeth, crowded teeth, irregularly spaced teeth, overbite or underbite. Our orthodontist recommends braces for children to correct tooth or jaw development issues while they are still young. We offer traditional metal braces and ceramic braces.
Seemingly innocent habits such as thumb-sucking or thrusting the tongue against the back of the teeth can have long-lasting orthodontic consequences. If your child has a habit of sucking their fingers or thrusting their tongue, our orthodontist can recommend a habit appliance to help break them of the behavior. Habit appliances are thin metal devices worn over the teeth to deter your child.
Appliances can also be used to guide your child’s tongue into a better placement during rest or when swallowing. Be sure to schedule a consultation with our orthodontist to determine if your child can benefit from a habit appliance.
If your child is missing teeth due to decay or injury, our orthodontist may recommend a holding appliance. Holding appliances, also known as space-maintaining appliances, are used to keep your child’s teeth from shifting to compensate for the missing tooth.
A holding appliance can hold the alignment of your child’s teeth until a permanent tooth grows in or the tooth is replaced. Our orthodontist will conduct a thorough exam of your child’s mouth and can recommend a number of appliances for your child’s needs.
