It’s no secret: most kids aren’t exactly fans of dental offices—but it doesn’t have to be that way.
At Moshiri Orthodontics, we do everything in our power to make the patient experience pleasant for each and every child. We provide a warm, friendly, and fun environment. Then we make sure any treatment the child receives is the best possible for their age, personality, and condition.
We recommend the least invasive and most appropriate treatment for your child’s unique circumstances, giving them a positive experience and a smile that will instill confidence for a lifetime.
As experts at both braces and Invisalign, we can give kids and their parents a unique opportunity to weigh the pros and cons of each treatment. Whichever option you choose, you’ll know that your child is under the care of a true expert in the field of orthodontics.
Full Circle Orthodontics
At Moshiri Orthodontics, we practice a holistic approach to oral health. That means we take the health of the whole jaw and mouth into consideration. By factoring in all the little details, we can create a comprehensive diagnosis and a big picture treatment plan to take your child’s smile into the future.
Can our Full Circle approach help your child or teen?
When our team gives your child an evaluation, we will provide the most comprehensive consultation, taking your child’s stage of development and health history into account. After your first evaluation, we offer continued observation to monitor any issues that may arise as your child’s permanent teeth come in. We’ll give your child the proactive care and oversight they need to develop the best bite and smile as they grow.
Most people think orthodontic treatment needs to start in the teens—once someone’s permanent teeth have already come in. However, recent advances in the study of child development have changed that. The American Association of Orthodontists now recommends that every child receive an early orthodontic evaluation between the ages of 7 and 9.
Your First Visit
At your early evaluation consultation, you can expect:
We can identify any potential risks and make a plan to solve them before they become more severe, often requiring more invasive correction methods.
If your child hasn’t been monitored from an early age, and you have been recommended by your family dentist for a consultation, our time will be geared towards current treatment options for correction.
An hour-long consultation appointment will give you a thorough overview of your child’s needs. Plus, the consultation is always free—it doesn’t cost a cent to put your child or teenager on the path to a smile that lasts.
(Excluding TMJ/TMD consultations.)
