Orthodontics for kids is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial abnormalities in children. At Little Smiles of Eastvale, we offer a range of orthodontic treatments suited for children, including space maintainers, traditional metal braces, and Invisalign First. Orthodontics for kids is not just about straightening teeth, it's about creating a foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Early orthodontic intervention also has the added benefit of improving your child's oral health and boosting their self-esteem.
Your child's early years are the best time to correct any dental issues they may have. Early orthodontic treatment can prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. It's not just about aesthetics, it's about setting your child up for a lifetime of good oral health. Orthodontic treatment can correct overcrowding, crossbites, overbites, and underbites, and can even improve the appearance and function of your child's lips and face.
Orthodontic treatment can start as early as age 6 or 7!

Orthodontics for kids can drastically improve your child's oral health. Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Correcting bite issues can also prevent wear and tear on the teeth and reduce the risk of future dental problems.
Orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve your child's appearance, leading to enhanced self-esteem. A beautiful smile can boost your child's confidence, positively impacting their social interactions and overall quality of life.
Early orthodontic treatment can prevent future dental issues. It can correct jaw growth, guide permanent teeth into more favorable positions, and reduce the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth. It's a proactive approach to your child's oral health.
The first step in the orthodontic treatment process is the initial consultation. Dr. Zala will examine your child's teeth, mouth, and jaw to determine the need for orthodontic treatment. This consultation will help us understand your child's unique needs and develop a personalized treatment plan.
After the initial consultation, we'll develop a detailed treatment plan. This plan will outline the type of orthodontic appliance to be used (space maintainers, traditional metal braces, or Invisalign First), the duration of treatment, and any necessary follow-up care.
The final step is the implementation of the treatment plan. This could involve fitting your child with their chosen orthodontic appliance and providing instructions for care. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments.
