Child Orthodontic Treatment
Our smile is a big part of our identity, how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us; a nice smile will do a lot to lift your Child’s self–esteem as they grow. Child orthodontic treatment plans are easier, faster, and less expensive to implement than adults.
We follow the guidelines established by the American Association of Orthodontists by recommending that the first orthodontic evaluation should take place by the age of 7 for all children. This early evaluation can help to determine the best time to begin any necessary orthodontic treatment.

Snoring can be a valuable early warning sign that sleep apnea is present. Treating snoring alone can remove this warning system.

Just as seeing smoke as a warning that a fire may be burning, hearing snoring is a warning that sleep apnea may be present. And just as smokeless fires may be discovered late, with unfortunate consequences, so too may snore-free sleep apnea. Question any healthcare practitioner that treats only snoring without ruling out sleep apnea with a diagnostic sleep study. Read More
