Few pediatric dentistry offices can boast having a comprehensive orthodontics team all under one roof. Alameda Pediatric Dentistry offers children the most customized dental care in and around the Bay Area—with early orthodontic treatment available in-house. Here are the top 5 ways this can benefit you and your family:
1. Early detection. As a parent, you likely won’t notice issues that require early orthodontic treatment—but your child’s dentist will! Your child’s dentist is the best person to let you know when issues like overcrowding, protruding teeth, or speech impediments exist, and whether or not braces are the answer. With the ability to do orthodontics in our office, you can be sure that communication between your child’s pediatric dentist and orthodontist will be seamless and efficient.
2. Convenience. Anyone who’s had braces, or knows someone who has, realizes that cleanings aren’t so simple. Before the dentist can clean the teeth, the orthodontist must remove the wires, and after the appointment, replace them. This requires multiple office visits on the same day for parents and kids, oftentimes with younger siblings in tow. With both the dentist and orthodontist in one place, cleanings are that much easier. [Read more…]
