What Is a Pediatric Orthodontist?

Pediatric orthodontists receive additional training and education beyond general orthodontic residency to specialize in the unique needs and concerns of growing children. They have the knowledge and expertise to diagnose, prevent, and treat a wide range of orthodontic problems.

Trained to recognize and treat unique developmental and growth patterns, pediatric orthodontists leverage their experience working with younger patients to develop treatment plans that will work with the individual needs and goals of the patient.

Early orthodontic treatment is a critical component of pediatric dentistry, as it can help prevent and correct orthodontic problems early before they develop into more severe concerns. Crooked teeth, tooth decay, and other orthodontic issues can arise due to habits such as thumb-sucking or abnormal jaw development. By tackling these issues early on, Dr. Lucas can help ensure your child’s smile stays healthy and beautiful for years to come.

When Should My Child See an Orthodontist? 

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children visit an orthodontist for their first appointment by age 7. This early treatment can help prevent more serious orthodontic problems from developing and can make orthodontic treatment easier and more effective later on.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatments

Our team of orthodontists specializes in various treatments. These include but are not limited to

We collaborate with other dental specialists, such as pediatric dentists, to provide comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care for patients.

Comprehensive orthodontic treatment is recommended for older children and adolescents who have completed their jaw and tooth development. This type of treatment may include a recommendation for braces that would aim to correct common orthodontic issues like:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Crowding
  • Spacing

At Lucas Orthodontics, we are committed to the idea that a healthy smile is a foundation of a confident, happy life. Through this dedication, we have chosen to help kids achieve their best smiles through advanced orthodontic treatments and personalized care.
