Discover Early Childhood Orthodontics at Burg Orthodontics

Early Childhood Orthodontics, often referred to as Phase I Orthodontics, represents a crucial phase of orthodontic care aimed at addressing issues before permanent teeth emerge. To ensure the best dental health for your child, we recommend a complimentary orthodontic consultation at the age of eight. This proactive approach allows us to detect and potentially prevent dental and jaw issues before they become more complex.

Phase I Orthodontics: A Foundation for Lifelong Dental Health

Orthodontic treatment for young children serves as a proactive measure to correct and prevent “bite” irregularities. These irregularities can result from various factors, including genetics. During your child’s regular preventive visits to the pediatric dentist, our team can monitor their dental development closely. If any orthodontic concerns arise, early intervention strategies can be implemented. Should the need for further orthodontic assistance arise, your pediatric dentist may refer you to one of our expert orthodontists.

From early evaluations to treatment options and financing, we've got you covered. Explore our FAQs to learn more about creating a confident smile for your child.

  • At what age should my child see an orthodontist?

    The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7. This early assessment allows our orthodontists at Burg Orthodontics in Salt Lake City to detect potential issues with jaw growth and emerging teeth, even if permanent teeth haven’t fully erupted. While treatment typically starts between 8-14, early intervention can prevent future problems and guide proper tooth development. Request a free consultation with Burg Orthodontics today!

  • What are the different types of orthodontic treatment for children?

    Burg Orthodontics in Salt Lake City offers various children’s orthodontic treatment options depending on their specific needs. Common options include:

    • Metal braces: The most traditional option, using brackets and wires to gradually move teeth.
    • Ceramic braces: Similar to metal braces, but less noticeable due to tooth-colored brackets. Ideal for children seeking a more discreet option.
    • Clear aligners: Removable trays like Invisalign® that gently shift teeth over time. A popular choice for teenagers and adults seeking a comfortable and invisible option.
    • Space maintainers: Placeholder appliances to preserve space for permanent teeth.
    • Headgear: Used to correct jaw growth discrepancies.
  • How long will my child need orthodontic treatment?

    Treatment duration varies depending on the severity of the issue and the chosen method. Simple cases with metal braces might take 12-18 months, while complex issues with aligners could require 2-3 years. Your Burg Orthodontics specialist will provide a personalized timeline and treatment plan during your free consultation.

  • Does orthodontic treatment hurt?

    Children may experience some mild discomfort when braces are first applied or adjusted. This usually subsides within a few days. Pain relievers and over-the-counter numbing gels can help manage initial discomfort. Regular checkups and proper oral hygiene minimize discomfort throughout treatment. Burg Orthodontics is committed to providing a comfortable and positive experience for your child.
