It’s an exciting milestone when your child’s permanent teeth start to come in. It may also cause concern over whether your child will need braces in the future. If you’d like to keep your child out of braces, ask us about our Houston preventive orthodontics with HealthyStart™!
Dr. Amanda K. Juarez started offering interventional orthodontics because she wanted to help her own children avoid future orthodontic treatments. Let Dr. Juarez do the same for your children! This treatment:
- Can shorten or even eliminate the need for full orthodontic treatment later
- Uses a safe, custom-fit oral appliance
- Helps your child’s teeth, jaw, and mouth develop properly
Call us today to schedule an appointment for your child: 832-463-1021. You’ll find our office conveniently located at 1300 Post Oak Blvd., Suite 1620.
Give Your Child the Right Start
HealthyStart™ preventive orthodontics uses a BPA-, latex-, silicone-free dental appliance that’s approved by the FDA. The custom-made appliance looks similar to an athletic mouthguard and is worn while your child sleeps. It may be worn during the day as well, depending on his or her age and orthodontic needs. Some children may go through three phases, each with a different appliance, for best results.
While your children’s permanent teeth are still coming in and developing, HealthyStart™:
- Helps guide their teeth into proper position
- Promotes healthy jaw development
- Improves the overall shape and formation of their mouth
Treatment can prevent crooked teeth, bite issues, and other problems that could later require braces. But HealthyStart™ offers more than just cosmetic and oral health benefits. It can also help open up your child’s airway during sleep. In this way, it will improve sleep quality, boost performance during the day, and help prevent sleep-disordered breathing – which could potentially develop into sleep apnea if left untreated.
Our team will do everything we can to make your child’s first orthodontic appointment pleasant. We even provide headphones and 3-D video glasses equipped with Netflix!
