Does My Child Need an Orthodontic Appliance?

Whether your child needs an orthodontic appliance is contingent upon the specific dental concerns that we detect. For example, we may recommend a space maintainer or a palatal expander to create enough room in the mouth for the permanent teeth to erupt without a hitch. Further, we always provide a retainer after braces are taken off. Retainers are crucial in preventing the newly straightened teeth from relapsing and drifting back to their original misaligned positions.
