Growth and Developmental Care

Early interceptive/preventive orthodontic treatment can help your child avoid more complex treatment in the future!

Space Maintenance

Many appliances are considered to maintain the space between teeth after a removal. The space is often necessary for the eruption of an adult tooth. Dr. Sierra, Dr. Kwon, or Dr. Pettit will determine if your child will benefit from a space maintainer based on the location of tooth loss, age, and specific dental needs.

Development Supervision

Our doctors are trained to recognize growth, habit, and/or airway issues and will provide treatment or make the appropriate referral to a certified orthodontist at the necessary time. Early preventive orthodontic treatment can save time and money and may help your child avoid more involved treatment in the future.
