Does your child need braces?

July 18, 2018 | Posted in Health | Be the first one to comment


Summer is a great time for you to get your child’s dental work out of the way. For parents with older children, the first order of business usually turns to braces with the arrival of permanent teeth.  Have you been wondering whether braces might be in your child’s future?

Here are some early signs your child will likely need some form of orthodontic care:

  • Over-crowded or misaligned teeth

  • “Noisy” jaw joints

  • An overbite or underbite

  • Jaws that seem out of proportion to your child’s face

  • Difficulty chewing

If you spot any of these tell-tale symptoms, call us to discuss reserving time for a one on one consultation. Even if baby teeth are still present, earlier treatments to a growing jaw can help ensure long-term success. 

Marnie is our lead Orthodontic Hygienist and loves seeing the improvement each month in our patients smiles. She works alongside Dr. Ryan to treatment plan the right type of treatment for your child. 

As always, if you have any questions, please call us at 705-734-2242 and schedule a one on one consult to see if your child is ready for braces.
