We aim to give every patient the care they need to achieve a straight, healthy smile using the best orthodontic techniques and technology.

Early Orthodontic Evaluations

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children receive an orthodontic evaluation by age seven to identify and address orthodontic issues early. It’s easier to treat orthodontic problems before adult teeth erupt. However, an early assessment doesn’t mean that your child will necessarily need treatment—we simply check your child’s bite and jaw alignment and recommend any preventive measures to reduce treatment severity or expense. Most parents find that their child’s orthodontic treatment can wait or won’t even be necessary.

Does Your Child Need Early Treatment?

A trained children’s orthodontist can determine if your child would benefit from early treatment. We recommend bringing your child to Ocean Blue Orthodontics for an evaluation if you notice the following signs:

  • Thumb-sucking or finger-sucking past age three
  • Difficulty biting or chewing
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Mouth breathing
  • Speech impediments
  • Protruding teeth

Benefits of Braces for Kids

If your child does need preventive orthodontics, they can expect the following benefits:

  • Reducing or eliminating the need for adult braces
  • Eliminating the need for adult tooth extractions
  • Reducing or eliminating the need for jaw surgery
  • Improving facial development

Ocean Blue Orthodontics offers state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment options, including self-ligating Damon braces and traditional metal braces.
