Ring the Bell!
Dr. Bell prefers to take a conservative approach when considering orthodontic treatment in young children. While children should start having checkups starting at age 7, that doesn't mean they have to start treatment, nor do they all need it. Often, Dr. Bell will opt to simply observe a child's dental development and track the progress of a developing smile.
If your child will benefit from interceptive care, they will receive the same care, attention, and personalization as a teen or adult undergoing treatment. No two kids will have the same treatment, but Dr. Bell has the same goal for every child: guiding their developing teeth to create a beautiful smile. If a two-phase journey is beneficial, Dr. Bell will be sure to set up a young child's smile for success and minimize the complexity and length of treatment in a later phase.
Joanie's Smile Story
“Joanie’s smile journey was prompted by functional concerns with her bite. Joanie had been dealing with headaches and had been dependent on a night splint for several years. She noticed over time her bite had been changing and upon examination a significant asymmetry was noted. Her bite was misaligned and she only had contacts on a couple teeth. Joanie is a dental hygienist and is married to a dentist so she was well aware of the damage such a bite could lead to. She chose braces for her smile journey and demonstrated that even adults with significant bite discrepancies can undergo orthodontic treatment and receive beautiful, stable results. Her case was a fantastic transformation!”
