When Should My Child See An Orthodontist?
At Brite Bite, our team of orthodontists work alongside and colaboratively with our pediatric dentists. During each routine appointment, our dentists will assess and measure different aspects of your child’s bite. If any issues are identified, we may recommend that you have a consultation with one of our orthodontic specialists.
What happens during an orthodontic consult?
During an orthodontic consult, you and your child will meet with one of our orthodontic specialists. Photos are taken to help record your child’s current bite and tooth positioning. The orthodontist may also recommend a panoramic x-ray to help assess dental development and the positioning of unerupted teeth.
After a thorough examination, our orthodontists may recommend starting treatment. In this case, you will be provided with a comprehensive treatment plan and estimate specific to your child’s needs.
